Return to Action: Dwan Cleans Up

Tom Dwan

After an unexplained lull in the high-stakes action online, the usual suspects came back to the tables last night with Tom “durrrr” Dwan leading the way.

Dwan's session started with almost 500 hands at $200/$400 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha. After losing almost $40k, he moved to a heads-up table to play $300/$600 No-Limit Hold'em against unknown Swede Isildur1.

The match lasted 374 hands with Dwan making $84,484.

Dwan then went on to lose over $96k at a $200/$400 Cap PLO game before sitting with Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies at $500/$1,000 PLO, where he made $129,240 over 251 hands.

With Sahamies down for the count, Dwan's next opponent would be Cole South. The two sat at $200/$400 PLO where, at the time of publication, Dwan had a lead of over $307k.

Assuming the final result in the Dwan/South match remains the same, Dwan will leave the session with a profit of over $383k.

Meanwhile Isildur1, who had been spotted at some of the lower stakes tables after his $1.8 million dollar loss last week, made his return to high stakes with a $50/$100 PLO match against South.

After winning $81,523, the two doubled the limits to $100/$200 where Isildur1 won another $87,601 over a 1,235 hand match.

With South destroyed, Isildur1 moved on to his regular Hold'em battle against Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo. The match took place over a mix of $100/$200 and $200/$400 tables with Isildur1 making over $143k.

It was at this point Isildur1 sat for his session with Dwan, losing $84k.

After that 374 hand session, the unknown Swede lost $14k at the Cap game before sitting once more with South, this time playing the CardRunners pro across three limits of PLO: $100/$200, $200/$400 and $300/$600.

In total, Isildur1 lost $328,174 to South across the three limits, finishing the day down over $114k.

South, who was still in the middle of a heads-up match with Dwan at the time of publication, currently sits down over $368k.

$200k of those losses came from a high-action $300/$600 PLO match against Sahamies, which saw the three largest pots of the day, all worth over $200k.

Thanks to this win, Sahamies finished his session up $79k.
