Phil Ivey is back in his office.

Phil Ivey and Tom “durrrr” Dwan went on a serious tear this week winning hundreds of thousands of dollars on Full Tilt.

Ivey, who won a WSOP bracelet this summer for $329,840, made nearly $1 million in four days.

The 2009 November Niner kicked his hot streak off on Sunday night by winning $674,343 from Luukie21 at $500/$1,000 Cap PLO.

Luukie21, who is rumored to be a well-known Dutch player, was the unlucky recipient of a serious beat down which lasted for three hours and 615 hands.

Ivey wasn't finished for the week and last night he added another $143,886 in $2,000/$4,000 Limit Hold'em. Apparently online player IHateJuice either hadn't heard about the Luukie21 destruction or thought he could do better.

It didn't work out as Ivey trounced IHateJuice over two and half hours and 501 hands bringing his four-day haul up to $913,637.

Meanwhile Dwan netted $460,000 from Patrik Antonius in the durrrr Challenge this week but also found time on Sunday to play a marathon session and add $474,164 to his bankroll.

Dwan won big against URnotINdanger2 playing four tables of $100/$200 No-Limit Hold'em and won even more playing six-max $100/$200 Pot-Limit Omaha against the likes of Niki Jedlicka, Jani Vilmunen and Luukie21.

As of Wednesday, Dwan was up to $1.16 million in profit over the last four days including his durrrr Challenge wins.

In other news Swedish online player martonas reappeared on the high stakes tables this weekend.

You might remember martonas from last year when he went on a legendary run that saw him earn $2.4 million in a little more than two weeks and then come crashing down to earth by donating all his winnings and $2.6 million more back to the high stakes community.

martonas hit the Full Tilt PLO tables at stakes of $25/$50 all the way up to $200/$400. He picked up pretty much right where he left off, losing close to $100,000.
