Friday, May 11,2012 : MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR POKER WIN FOR DWAN
Internet ace is cleaning up on the live tables in Macau
Along with other internet high stakes poker pros like Gus Hansen, Sam Trickett and Andrew Robl, the audacious Tom ‘durrrr' Dwan has been hitting the felt in Macau recently, and this week pulled off a US$ 3.8 million victory against an unnamed Asian businessman.
Poker Portal Asia reports that the match was part of The Big Game, which has been running daily at StarWorld Hotel’s Poker King Club for the past week.
"The Poker King Club nosebleed games have been running with blinds as high as HKD $30,000/$60,000 (US$3850/$7700) recently but, at the time of Dwan’s juicy hand, they were at a more palatable HKD $10,000/$20,000 (US $1300/$2600)," the information site reports.
"Unfortunately, details of the action in the hand are a bit sketchy but, according to a source, Dwan was holding Ace-Ten and up against a Chinese businessman with Ace-Deuce.
"The pot was certainly the biggest of the night but it’s not known whether Dwan left a winner or not at the end of the session."
