Dwan Nears $4 million for 2010

Tom Dwan

After killing the 7-Game action on Full Tilt last night, Tom “durrrr” Dwan is closing in on $4 million in profit this year.

The majority of Dwan's 7-Game winnings came from the Great Dane himself, Gus Hansen.

Hansen, who has gone from the year's top profit earner to just 28th on the list, lost $327k at the game, bringing him down to only $206k profit on the year.

Although Dwan did play some PLO yesterday, the majority of his hands outside of 7-Game came from a heads-up No-Limit Hold'em session with frequent rival Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo.

The two played over 2,000 hands of $200/$400, Bonomo coming out on top for over $81k.

Despite the loss to Bomono, Dwan managed to grind his way to grind up over $196k in PLO profits to add to his $598,615 7-Game session.

In total Dwan finished the day up $795,092, enough to bring his profits for the year up to $3.97 million.

Alexander "Postflopaction" Kostritsyn, who had been ruling the 7-Game action this year, posted a large $297k loss in the game last night. The loss drops him down to second place in 7-Game profits with $1.2 million.

The third biggest loser from yesterday's 7-Game session was live high-stakes regular Tim "LoLiNa" Phan. Phan dumped $269,385 in just over 1,000 hands, bringing his year's total back down to nearly even.

Meanwhile over at PokerStars, Daniel "KidPoker" Negreanu has been grinding the sites $100/$200 NLHE tables since mid February. Despite the entire online world openly calling him an online fish, Negreanu has managed to grind around $205k profit since he started playing the game.

While the sample size is still small, all signs point to Negreanu having a legitimate shot at silencing his critics, proving he's just as capable online as he is at the green felt.

Below are three of yesterday's largest pots from Dwan's heads-up session with Bonomo. For more high-stakes hand replays head to MarketPulse.
