Tom Dwan Keeps Crushing High-Stakes TablesTweet Share
After a rough ending to 2009 on the nosebleed tables, Tom “durrrr” Dwan has been a destructive force there in 2010, a trend that he has continued this week. Trolling the high-stakes tables at Full Tilt Poker, Dwan is already up an amazing $5.5 million for the year, thanks in large part to a strong $1.2 million heist on Tuesday.
With Isildur1 currently missing from the high-stakes tables, Dwan has taken charge. He has easily been the most active player recently, and his success explains why. Locking horns in a four-hour session with an unknown Swedish player called “Odonkor1”, Dwan walked away with $225,000 playing $100/$200 NLHE.
A short time later, Dwan moved to the $500/$1,000 Pot Limit Omaha Ivey Thunderdome tables to challenge Phil Ivey himself. Ivey quickly ended the action, losing $30,000 in just 11 hands.
Dwan’s next victim was found at the same tables, with him and long-time nemesis Ilari Sahamies trading blows on the felt. In an exciting session that lasted several hours, pots sizes soared well over $200,000, with the highest going to $558,000. Dwan took down three pots of over $400,000 each, and removed a painful $945,000 from the Fin’s bankroll in the process.
In just a few hours, the hotshot of this year’s nosebleed tables had made $1.2 million against three top-notch opponents. Unlike the end of 2009, Dwan just keeps crushing his opponents on the high-stakes tables, creating a strong bankroll in the process.
