Game: $500/$1,000 Hold'em cash games this year, according to our MarketPulse tracking software, and today's hand brings you another example of where the money's been going - into the bankroll of one Tom "durrrr" Dwan.
The hand begins with durrrr raising from under the gun to $3,000. Everyone folds to patatino who calls from in the big blind.
The flop comes down 4♣ K♠ 6♠ and durrrr continuation bets $5,400. patatino check-raises to $22,700 and durrrr tanks before eventually flat-calling.
The turn comes the 5♦ and patatino checks again. durrrr bets $43,600 and patatino elects to just flat-call.
The river is the 2♥ and patatino checks. durrrr bets $177,484 all-in and patatino calls off his last $167,942.
durrrr shows 7♠ 3♠ for the turned straight and patatino mucks.
The hand starts out with durrrr raising from under the gun to $3,000 with 7♠ 3♠. Definitely not a standard move by any means. I mean a suited four-gap from early position?
Anyway, he is durrrr, and he is not to be questioned. Maybe he figured he would end up heads-up with patatino a high percentage of the time, or maybe heEither way, he raises it up and everyone else gets out of his way.
patatino does make the call. Again, he probably has a pair of kings here. Anything more, and he would have check-raised again on the turn.
The river comes 2♥. patatino checks and durrrr shoves all-in for $177,484. patatino tanks and lets his time run almost all the way down before making the call.
When durrrr shows the 7♠ 3♠, patatino mucks. The straight is good for the $474,984 pot and also the title of "sickest hand to bust patatino with."
