The durrrr Comeback: Turkey, Eggnog, Ziigmund and $730k


After taking a short break over the holidays, Tom “durrrr” Dwan returned to Full Tilt’s high-stakes tables last night, adding over $730k to his comeback.

Dwan’s session started late last night at $50/$100 Pot-Limit Omaha, playing a mix of heads-up and short-handed with players including Browndog19, geoff7878 and OneUponAStar.

Dwan left the tables after 149 hands, up $42,902.

After starting off with modest success, Dwan doubled the limits to play 65 hands of $100/$200 PLO. The opponents were primarily the same, with a brief appearance from Richard Ashby.

The $100/$200 session ended with Dwan up another $80,813.

After a 30-minute break, he sat at a six-max $300/$600 PLO table with Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies that quickly filled up with familiar names like La Key U, rospodin, Hac "trex313" Dang, Ashby and Brian Townsend.

The three largest pots from the table involved Dang and were all over $200k. Dang took down the first and third largest, both against the currently pro-status suspended Townsend.

Townsend ended the night down nearly $725k.

Before leaving the $300/$600 session up $53,890, Dwan added a second table, taking on Sahamies at $500/$1,000 PLO.

They played 109 hands heads-up with Dwan taking both the largest pots of the night, leaving the session up $552,669.

Finishing the night up an impressive $730,274, Dwan’s losses for the year have now been shrunk to just over $4.5 million.

Sahamies had but one out.



It's safe to assume Dwan needed that river.



A dirty turn.
