Urindanger playing with Gus-to in the new year


The dynamic poker-playing duo of Di "Urindanger" Dang and Hac "trex313" Dang have been lighting up the high-stakes profit charts in 2009, and Di was particularly dominant last night, winning five of the biggest PLO hands against Full Tilt pro Gus Hansen.

It shouldn't really come as that much of a surprise that the Great Dane lost a few pots, as you can read about some bad sessions here and here.

Urindanger wasn't just picking on Hansen, however, as he also picked up pots against Thomas Wahlroos, LokoIsBack, bballer88 and various others. Of the top 25 hands covered by MarketPulse, Urindanger could lay claim to winning 15 of them.

The biggest hand of the night came at the aptly named Hansen Knockout table. The game in question was $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. In the hand Hansen bet on all streets of a J 7 5 2 board only to have Urindanger check-raise him on the turn.

Hansen held two pair and decided to shove for his last $50,000. Urindanger had a big draw, however, with a wrap. As luck would have it, the 8 fell on the turn, completing Urindanger's straight and thus earning him the only $116,995 pot of the day.

In other high-stakes news, Tom Dwan has been notably quiet since issuing the "durrrr challenge," and one of the few players to take up his offer, Phil Ivey, has moved into first place in the Hold'em Money Makers list with $414,890.
