Gentle Ben mauls durrrr for $143k pot

Ben Grundy
Milkybarkid: Don't let the Scooby Doo-lunchbox look fool you. Guy can play.

But U.K.-based Betfair-sponsored pro Ben "Milkybarkid" Grundy undoubtedly is, proving himself time and again over the last decade (Grundy turned 30 this year) with winning sessions, both live and online, against the best players in the world.

Now apparently included in the list of players he's willing to throw his bankroll around with is one Tom "durrrr" Dwan - online icon and generally considered one of the best Pot-Limit Omaha players in the game today.

No details on the full session or overall results, but the two stepped up to at least one hand of heads-up PLO early this morning, with the net result a massive $143k pot - the biggest online so far today - that was pushed over to the 'kid.
