Wrath of Dwan: durrrr explodes for $850k

Tom Dwan
Durrrr: Even the biggest ballers have to be stoked about an $850k day.

Struggling a bit in the last few months and on the losing end of some big sessions, it was only a matter of time before Tom "durrrr" Dwan went off for a huge score.

That day was yesterday, and even Dwan - a guy used to big swings and big wins - might have been surprised with the $850k he dragged in from an epic 14-hour session across both Full Tilt and PokerStars.

It was such a huge score that even after being over $1 million in the hole so far in cash games at Full Tilt in '08, durrrr is almost back in the black for the year.

He may soon get the opportunity to get even, as after a long stretch of dried-up high-stakes NL Hold'em games, the lid came off yesterday.

The waiting list hit 10 or 12 players for the big $200/$400 six-max game at Full Tilt, with virtually all of the A-list players trying to get a piece of the action from a few noted fish.

In the end almost all of them did, including Hac "trex313" Dang, Chris "Genius28" Lee, jimmie23, howisitfeellike, David Benyamine and Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond.

But it was durrrr who ran away from the pack in both his Pot-Limit Omaha and No-Limit Hold'em sessions.

Major victims were patatino, Phil Ivey, Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and Ariel "DaEvils" Schneller.
