Tom "durrrr" Dwan wins his biggest online pot
It was a durrrrific day for high-stakes poker today, as Tom "durrrr" Dwan won his largest online pot of all time, but Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond was sitting to his right with $1.3 mil in play.
The table in question was absolutely ripe with action: durrrr, Urindanger, LokolsBack, OMGClayAiken and everyone's favorite fish elmariachimacho. Galfond had the money seat, sitting to elmarichimacho's left, and it looks to have paid off nicely, with reports of him leaving the table with over $2 million in chips.
Even with Galfond sucking up so much of the action, durrrr managed to take down his largest online pot of all time, worth a total of $657,070.

When one player starts dishing out serious action, as elmariachimacho did here, the whole table can become action-crazed, allowing pots to grow larger than they might have otherwise. Even so, Urindanger and durrrr have a detailed high-stakes history, and a tendency to play with an extremely high level of aggression.
Although we never get to see Urindanger's hand, we can be sure he had something worth getting it all-in with. Against durrrr that can be any marginal to strong hand.
On this board, with the action, chances are Urindanger was holding A-K for a top two, losing only to a set. If that is the scenario, Urindanger would get it all-in here every time on this board, regardless of how deep the stacks were.
