patatino takes $610k pot; biggest ever online

Paper Chase
At one point last night, over $1.5 million on the table at RailHeaven.

With day after day of deep-stacked action at Full Tilt's marquee $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em table, it was only a matter of time before the record for largest pot ever online was broken.

No one, however, expected it to be won by reputed high-stakes fish patatino - and with a pair of deuces.

It was another epic session at RailHeaven last night with another dozen amazing hands to report, including two which belong among the most extraordinary high-stakes pots of all time.

First and foremost is the pot now officially the biggest ever won online, at $610k, scooped by patatino.

The victim was Hac "trex313" Dang, who had the odds to call patatino's $300k flop shove with his combo draw but saw patatino's queen-high hand connect with the turn and fade his final outs.

The second, for $521k, came just a half hour later when the poker gods evened the score and Dang hit a queen on the river to top durrrr's set of jacks.
