Phil Ivey destroys durrrr for $300k

Phil Ivey
To the victor, the spoils.

Last night the Ivey Thunderdome on Full Tilt Poker was host to a $500/$1000 Pot-Limit Omaha bloodbath.

Having lost over $600k worth of pots to Phil Ivey alone, Tom "durrrr" Dwan finished his latest high-stakes session by posting a loss worth over $340,000. As one would expect, Phil Ivey finished the night with a profit of almost $250,000.

This session with Ivey is just the latest in a lengthy string of losses for durrrr. In fact, his bankroll downswing coincided with the start of the new year as he has posted over $3.4 million in PLO losses since January 1.

Poker is beginning to seem like a bad nightmare for Dwan, with the pendulum of luck seemingly stuck over his opponents.

Since the first of this year, Ivey has won almost exactly as much as Dwan has lost playing PLO, posting a $3.4 million profit.

This impressive figure puts Ivey near the top of the leaders list, second only to the player everyone likes to call the "high stakes fish," Gus Hansen; currently sitting with over $4.1 million in PLO profit.

In fact, it's doubtful anyone would have bet on the fact that Dwan, Phil Galfond, Brian Hastings, Hac Dang, David Benyamine, Di Dang, Patrik Antonius and Ilari Sahamies would all be in the red for PLO profit this year. But they are so far.

Here are the five largest pots from this latest Ivey versus Dwan PLO session:
