Tom “durrrr” Dwan’s 11th Hour Push


With less than two weeks left in 2009, Tom “durrrr” Dwan has begun his final push towards breaking even on the year.

Unfortunately for Dwan, sitting at over $6 million in losses, it would take one of the most spectacular runs in online poker history to bring his head back above the water line.

But don’t count the newly signed Team Full Tilt Pro out for the count quite yet. In an interview with PokerListings earlier this week Dwan was brimming with positivity and confidence.

“It hasn’t been the best year. But if anyone doesn’t think that it’s a downswing then they are welcome to cross book me in any game I play in. That’s all I have to say.”

Dwan began his session this morning playing $50/$100 Pot-Limit Omaha, where he remained for 787 hands, long enough to make just under $5k.

Dwan doubled the size of the stakes to play 1,585 hands of $100/$200 PLO over the next five hours of short-handed play and managed to beat his competition out of over $108k.

Halfway through the $100/$200 session Dwan also accepted a challenge to play DjAdi heads up at $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold’em. The two high-stakes regulars only battled for 64 hands with the largest pot of the session reaching exactly $200k, When the session ended Dwan left up over $92k.

As of the time of publication Dwan has logged off of Full Tilt, up over $205k on the day.

Below are three of the largest hands from Dwan’s session. To see more hands, head to MarketPulse.
