  • Tom Dwan Drops $1 Million at Full Tilt Poker

    Monday, November 2nd, 2009 by t2admin

This year has been a roller coaster for poker pro Tom ‘Durrrr’ Dwan. He has seen really good days at the poker table and really bad days. Sometimes he will win large pots only to lose a large pot just a short time later. Just a couple of days ago Dwan lost over $1 million playing Phil Ivey at the Pot-Limit Omaha tables at Full Tilt.

On the 29th the high stakes tables at Full Tilt were hot with the action between several poker pros including Dwan. Ivey, Dwan and Ilari Sahamies all competed at the No-Limit Hold’em and 7-Game tables. At the $500/$1,000 PLO tables Ivey took over $800K from both Sahamies and Dwan.

Sahamies managed to come out with a profit at the PLO tables with $85k but Ivey was the true winner earning $1.1 million, almost all of which came from Dwan. It took over 627 hands for Ivey to take the massive amount from Dwan.

Dwan tried to win back some of his losses from the PLO tables by hitting the Hold’em tables. Dwan did manage to earn back $100k but that is a far cry from the $1.1 million that he lost. Ivey also headed to the Hold’em tables but he ended up losing a big chunk of what he earned from Dwan. After the night was over, Ivey had dropped $377k, which gave him only $418k in profits.
The 7-Game tables have become quite popular at Full Tilt and other pros were hitting them as well recently. Patrik Antonius earned $248k in just 1,000 and David Beyamine played 3,576 hands at the tables to earn $408k.

But of course it was Dwan that took the major hit, losing the $1.1 million. There is no doubt he will back soon to try and recoup his losses. And if history repeats itself, as we know it does, then it will not be long before Dwan is back to even or out on top.
