Ivey Clashes with Dwan

Perhaps bored of the competition, Phil Ivey and Tom “durrrr” Dwan took aim at each other last night.

The pair played for over two hours, recording 132 hands in $300/$600 Pot-Limit Omaha, 108 hands of $500/$1,000 Cap No-Limit Hold'em and 66 hands of $500/$1,000 Cap PLO.

Ivey was unstoppable in each game as he won a total of $210,160 from Dwan over all three variants. He did most of his damage in the $500/$1,000 Cap PLO game where he won $79,974 alone.

Dwan, who didn't seem to be running particularly well in the matches, decided to eventually quit after receiving two consecutive bad beats.

In the final hand of the match Ivey rivered a flush against Dwan and that was enough to finally send the pride of Edison, New Jersey, packing.

Ivey, who seems to be hell-bent on draining every account on Full Tilt, was not finished and went on to play a three-handed match of $300/$600 PLO against CardRunners instructor Cole South and Finnish cash game wizard Jani Vilmunen, where he picked up $196,761.

Add in another $28,977 from Limit Hold'em against IHateJuice and deprimiert and Ivey finished the day with $435,899 in profit. That takes him up to $2.8 million for 2010.

Of course there is one player still ahead of him on the earnings leaderboard. Despite losing 69,961 last night, Dwan is still up $4.5 million for the year.

Dan "Jungleman12" Cates, who didn't play yesterday, is still third with $2.4 million.
