Hansen, Ivey test the durrrr waters

Gus Hansen
Gus Hansen picked up a handsome pot against durrrr today.

The Omaha tables were jumping this morning with big action as Gus Hansen and Phil Ivey took on durrrr in the high-stakes Omaha tables.

Tom "durrrr" Dwan has said he doesn't plan to play his million-dollar challenge against Ivey or Money Makers list this week, posting a more than $300,000 increase. He also saw some action today with Ivey and Hansen that will help keep him at the top as well.

The biggest pot so far today was a $240,378 pot that Hansen took off durrrr. Luckily for durrrr, he took pots off both Ivey and Hansen that more than balanced out that loss.

The hand with Hansen happened just after 11 a.m. today, with each of them sitting at the Hansen Knockout table at Full Tilt Poker with six-figure stacks.

In this particular hand, they got all-in after seeing the flop, and when the dust had settled, Hansen was scooping the pot.
