After more than 4,500 hands at $200/$400 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha, Di “Urindanger” Dang left the tables down over $495k, despite being limited to betting $16k per hand.

Dang's session started at two tables with David Benefield and Gus Hansen, but he found himself playing a wide variety of players as the night progressed.

A few of the more notable players to make an appearance included Tom "durrrr" Dwan, Ashton "theASHMAN103" Griffin, Alexander "PostflopAction" Kostritsyn and Daniel "FakeSky" Alaei.

Hansen stuck around until early this morning then took a seven hour rest before returning to the same tables. At the time of publication, the Great Dane had played 1,200 hands and was down over $155k.

Benefield came into the session with Dang already stuck $38k, but managed to get back in the black after making $20k, and another $38,000 from the $100/$200 Cap PLO games.

On top of the Cap PLO action, Benefield also took on Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo heads-up at $200/$400 No-Limit Hold'em. After 1,796 hands, Benefield lost $20k to Bonomo, finishing his night down just $678.

Dwan was quick to join the Cap PLO session with Dang, sticking around for exactly 3,600 hands before leaving game up over $367,000.

In addition to taking Dang's money, Dwan made $47k from 42 hands of $500/$1,000 Cap No-Limit Hold'em with pokerhontas2k6, and lost $134k to DrPill over 598 hands of $100/$200 No-Limit Hold'em. Dwan finished his night up $280,000.

Griffin started his day by making $74k from DrPill at $100/$200 NLHE then moved on the $200/$400 Cap PLO games where he made $71k, ending his night up $145k.

However, Kostritsyn couldn't pull together a win yesterday, losing at just about every table of every limit he sat at. After 4,442 hands, almost 4,000 of which were at the $200/$400 Cap PLO game, Kostritsyn lost over $276k.

Finally, Alaei sat in the $200/$400 Cap PLO game for 1,626 hands, earning over $133k for his efforts.
