LarsLuzak cleans a couple pots off durrrr
In the wee morning hours Friday, while most people were probably nestled into their beds thinking about the potential post-holiday shopping they'd be doing, LarsLuzak and Tom "durrrr" Dwan were heavily into some high-stakes Hold'em action.
The two were playing at Full Tilt Poker's $500/$1,000 GusHeaven room when LarsLuzak helped ease some of the weight of durrrr's winnings for the year.
In a matter of minutes, the two had gotten involved in two pots of more than $250,000, with LarsLuzak coming out the victor in both.
First was a $256,985 one that LarsLuzak took down with pocket aces, and the second was worth $269,597, which LarsLuzak earned with T♦ 7♦.
The first hand went down like this:
