Isildur1 doomswitches Dwan for $460k

Tom Dwan

Tom "durrrr" Dwan lost over $460k to Swedish player Isildur1 in the third massive $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em session in as many days last night on Full Tilt.

Not only have Dwan and Isildur1 played heads up for the last three days straight, but the still unknown Isildur1 has managed to come out on top in all three sessions.

After this most recent session Isildur1 is up over $2.3 million from the last three nights alone.

Mostly due to the $2.3 million in losses to Isildur1, Dwan has managed to dump a staggering $3 million over the last week.

Last night's losses can be mostly attributed to durrrr losing the three largest pots of the night. The pots were worth a mind-boggling $588k, $611k and $695k, the latter being the biggest pot recorded this year.

The second largest pot of the night was also one of the most interesting. After Isildur1 re-raised Dwan pre-flop with 5 7, Dwan made the call with 3 6.

The flop (6 K 7) gave each player a pair, but it was the turn (6 K 7 4) that sparked the fireworks.

With both players holding a pair, gut-shot straight draw and flush draw, they assumed they had as many as 17 outs to win.

Unfortunately for Dwan, Isildur1's hand killed twelve of his outs, leaving Dwan with only five for the win. The river came as a blank to both players, with Isildur1's pair of sevens good enough to take the $611k pot .

Surprisingly, it seems as if Dwan's losses are specific to his rival Isildur1.

While losing money hand over fist on the NLHE tables to Isildur1, Dwan won $520k from Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies playing $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha.

With the $520k from Ziigmund factored in, Dwan actually came out of the night with a marginal profit of $60k.
