Dwan vs Blom Re-match!

Tags: durrrr, FTOPS, full tilt poker, Isildur1, Pokerstars
Posted on Monday, December 10, 2012 by "M".

fulltiltpoker

Yesterday the long-awaited re-match between Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Tom "durrrr" Dwan was played across four $100/$200 No Limit Hold'em tables on Full Tilt Poker.  Both players were supposed to bring $100k each to the tables, but late negations were made and instead they sat down with $200,000 each.

Tom Dwan accumulated a small lead in the beginning of the match thanks to winning an all-in (pre-flop) with KK against Blom's 10's. Blom started playing more aggressive after this, but Tom Dwan handled it well and extended his lead by calling down a few river bluffs.

However, Dwan's lead was never very big and eventually Viktor Blom's super-aggressive style started working. Blom took down the 2 biggest pots of the match and was up about $100k after 1,5 hour of  play. Blom didn't give Dwan a single chance to catch his breathe once he had the big lead. In fact, it didn't take long before Tom Dwan was forced down to one table - where he kept on losing...

After 2 hours and 45 minutes (1381 hands) Dwan lost his final $3.5k with pockets 10's against Blom's A[c]3[c] in an all-in situation before the flop - the board ran out Q[s]8[c]6[d]A[h]6[s]. It was a well-deserved win by the young Swede, who made a name for himself in November 2009 by crushing Tom Dwan at Full Tilt Poker's nosebleed tables. Back then, the two were playing for millions of dollars on daily basis. Let's hope that history repeats itself!

High Stakes: "patpatman" rumored to be Tom Dwan

Tags: china, durrrr, high stakes, macau, patpatman, pokerstars, tom dwan
Posted on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 by "T".

The mysterious high-stakes player "patpatman" has been running extremely good on PokerStars nosebleed tables lately. In total, he has won $350k in the past two weeks (about 11,300 hands) and is already up over $1,1 million this year.

So who is this tallented player?
There are many suggestions circulating on the web on who "patpatman" is. However, it seems like most people think that it is Tom "durrrr" Dwan because the account is registered in Macau, China, where Tom Dwan goes regularly and participates in huge cash games. Besides that, "patpatman" likes to play deep at the highest tables and seems to master both NLHE and PLO. Also, he has been making some comments in the chat about current games in Macau.

Posted on Tuesday, August 16, 2011 by "T".

Lots of interesting rumors are circulating on the web right now. However, one of the most interesting ones is that Daniel "jungleman12" Cates has outstanding six million dollars stuck on his Full Tilt Poker account, and that he sold all of it to Tom "durrrr" Dwan after Black Friday. Danny "d2themfi" Isaacson was the one who reveled the information last Friday on one of the biggest poker forums online.

"When we had dinner with Daniel 'jungleman12' Cates and Haseeb 'INTERNETPOKERS' Qureshi in Austin in late April right after Black Friday, Cates said that he had sold his Full Tilt Poker account balance (I believe for 85% but i can't remember). We then asked him if he sold it to Tom 'durrrr' Dwan, and his response was (paraphrasing) 'Someone like that', and we left it at that." Isaacson tells.

Jungleman12 is 2010's biggest winner online

Tags: 2010, andreas Torbergsen, daniel cates, durrrr, high stakes, jungleman12, Tom Dwan
Posted on Monday, January 03, 2011 by "T".

After summarizing 2010's high stakes games online, we have completed a list over 2010's most successful poker players at Full Tilt Poker. It really ended up being the year of the "newcomers" - Daniel "Jungleman12" Cates grabbed the first place with over $5.5 million won and Andreas "Skjervoy" Torbergsen ended up in second place with almost $3,8 million.

As it goes for Brian Townsend, who was a big winner 2009, he ended up losing the most 2010. Townsend was losing almost every single month and for a long time "the battle" for the not-so-glamorous first place on 2010's biggest loser list was between him and the Finnish poker star Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies. However, Townsend ended up losing $4 million dollars and Ziigmund about $2 millions.

High Stakes: Tom Dwan - last week's biggest winner

Tags: durrrr, durrrr challenge, high stakes, tom dwan
Posted on Tuesday, December 14, 2010 by "T".

Last week the poker gods were really good to Tom "durrrr" Dwan at Full Tilt's highest tables. Well, he played lots of hands against many different opponents almost every single day - a strategy that paid off quite well as he ended up the biggest winner and almost $600k richer.

Durrrr will for sure be one 2010's biggest winners if nothing goes very wrong in the coming weeks. His biggest threat for the first place will probably be the man he's playing the durrrr challenge against, Daniel "jungleman12" Cates.

The challenge between Tom "durrr" Dwan and Daniel "jungleman12" Cates is moving forward slowly lately. However, they managed to play abut 1500 hands the other day and now they have played more than 11,000 hands. Durrrr was down about $800,000 against junglemen when the 1500 hand session started.

Finally the poker gods were on durrrr's side and he ended up winning $180,000 from jungleman12. In other words, durrrr is "only" down about $720k. Let's hope for some more action this week!

Tom "durrrr" Dwan ended up losing over a million dollars last week. This week, however, has started in the best possible way as he won $357,000 last night from playing $300/$600 Pot Limit Omaha against different high rollers.

Unfortunately there is not much going on when it comes to the challenge against jungleman12. Jungleman12 asked durrrr if he wanted to play some hands yesterday, but durrrr "turned him down" and chose to play PLO instead.

Tom "durrrr" Dwan is definitely one of the world's best headsup omaha players, but sometimes there are opponents that just gets the better of him.

Tom "durrrr" Dwan on the durrrr challenge

Tags: durrr challenge, durrrr, tom dwan
Posted on Thursday, November 11, 2010 by "T".

Tom Dwan's blog has been quite dead in the past 3 months. However, he made a bigger update of his blog a few days ago. In this blog post Dwan writes about what he has been up to in the past couple of weeks - filming for Poker After Dark, a wedding, halloween, being sick, lots of traveling etc. The most interesting reading, however, is what he had to say about the 2 challenges against Patrik Antonius and jungleman.

"I have 2 challenges open, both of which havent had much play in the last few weeks. I was busy with wsope, then traveling a bunch- but in the next few days/weeks i should be putting in a ton of hands with jungleman. With regards to the patrik challenge, i want to clear up the thought that he's stalling or doesn't want to pay if he loses or something like that. Patrik and i talk a lot and he's definitely done nothing wrong by me in the slightest. I don't know if we'll be finishing soon but hopefully we will, and sorry to the people watching that challenge that its gone on for so long."

After a kind of quiet week at Full Tilt's nosebleed tables, we think it's about time to summarize 2010's high stakes results. The 2 biggest winners this year are, not really a big surprise, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Daniel "jungleman12" Cates. Both Dwan and Cates have won over $4 million dollars each and, at the moment, it looks like their winning streaks aren't over yet. Other big winners this year are Phil ivey (+$3m), Andreas "skjervoy" Torbergsen (+$2,5m) and LokoIsback (+$2,44m).

Posted on Friday, October 08, 2010 by "T".

Isildur1, who is rumored to be Viktor Blom from Sweden, has been quite active at the $100/$200 No-Limit tables at Full Tilt lately. We have seen him battle against, for example, Tom "durrr" Dwan, Dan "jungleman12" Cates and an unknown player called KTPOKP in the past couple of days (all sessions with very mixed results). Isildur1 has been doing well against Tom Dwan but not so well against many other players. In just one week's time, Isildur1 has lost a total of $402,000. However, he's not alone when it comes to losing huge amounts of money....

Tom "durrrr" Dwan ended last week in the best possible way at Full Tilt Poker. In just 2,362 hands, Dwan managed to win over 1,5 million dollars.

Four of the pots in this session topped the $275,000 mark, durrrr won all of them, including a monster pot of $416,996.

Posted on Tuesday, October 05, 2010 by "T".

Yesterday it was finally time for a longer heads-up session between Tom "durrr" Dwan and the mystery swede Isildur1 again. They played at four $100/$200 NHL tables and managed to play over 3000 hands in about 6 hours. The match was very even most of the time, but thanks to a few big pots Isildur1 managed to walk away with about $120,000. After that this match was over, Isildur1 decided to continue. Now it was time for Isildur1 to take on Dan "jungleman12" Cates at the $100/$200 NLH tables. The match lasted for about 4 hours and was dominated, once again, by the american who won $170,000 from Isildur1.

Let's hope for more interesting high stakes games at Full Tilt Poker this week! Hopefully we will get to see some crazy heads-up sessions between durrrr and Isildur1 at the $200/$400 PLO tables.

For Daniel Negreanu there is no doubt whatsoever that the high stakes player Isildur1 can be anyone else than Viktor Blom from Sweden. Well, at least if we should believe what Daniel writes in his latest blog entry - "Top 5 Young Poker Pros of the Future". Daniel praises Isildur1 and call him a legend in the poker world, even though he never played against him.

"I've never played against him, but people I respect have told me that his NLH skills are remarkable and he approaches the game like no other, absolutely fearless and fun to watch." writes Daniel is his blog.

Other players who get amazing feedback in Daniel's "Top 5 Young Poker Pros of the Future"-list are Jason Mercier, Bill Reynolds, Tom Dwan and last but not least the norwegian poker pro Annette Obrestad.

It's also great to see that most of the notables in the high stakes world are back at the tables again. However, one player who has impressed a lot lately is the king of high stakes, Tom "durrr" Dwan. For example, during Sunday no one stood a chance against him and he ended up as the biggest winner.

After a very action filled and interesting weekend at the high stakes tables many players took a well needed break on Monday. But we only had to wait until Tuesday before the games were on again. Most interesting player to follow that day was Tom "durrrr" Dwan who played lots of hands and was involved in many big pots. After about 6,200 played hands, he had won nothing less that $720,000 from Patrik Antonius, UrnotINdanger2 and other notables. Durrrr has been playing extremely well in the past few days, but he also been very lucky in many big pots.

Posted on Thursday, July 22, 2010 by "T".

It is now official that Full Tilt Poker will continue to sponsor the Million Dollar Cash Game as they have renewed the contract for another 3 years. This year's Million Dollar Cash Game will be filmed in HD and will take place at an exclusive venue in London between 8th and 9th September. However, we will have to wait until January 2011 before it's broadcasted on Sky Sports.

According to the tournament director James Hopkins, we can expect to the see the strongest field ever in this year's Million Dollar Cash Game. Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan and Phil Hellmuth are just 3 of the huge names that will take part and make sure that we get to see poker at its best. And Who knows? Maybe we will get to see an even bigger pot than the $1.1 dollar pot between Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey in season 4. In fact that pot is the largest ever televised cash game pot.

Many of the poker world's best have retuned to the online high stakes tables in the past week. Even though the action isn't like what we were used to see a few months back, it still looks like we will have a quite interesting ending of the summer ahead of us.

Two players that haven't played much online lately are the poker giants Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Gus Hansen. Unfortunately none of them had a great comeback on Sunday and they both decided to call it a day as "losers". We are not talking about huge amounts though, at least not for Tom Dwan who has been running extremely well this year.

Tom "durrrr" Dwan is playing lots of events at the WSOP this year, mainly because he wants to win his first bracelet and the prop bet against Phil Ivey and Daniel Negreanu which will give him $2 million dollars! One would think that it must be tiring to play so many events, but it doesn't seem to be that way for durrrr since he has been finding energy and time to play online as well. How come someone with millions of dollars in the bank account still can be hungry for more and eager to play every single day, all year round? The answer is very simple, Tom Dwan loves the game and the kick he gets from playing against the world's best poker players. That's probably what makes him one of the best poker players in the world.

WSOP 2010: A bracelet worth 2 million dollars

Posted on Thursday, June 03, 2010 by "T".

To win a WSOP bracelet is for many the greatest achievement that can be reached in an entire poker career. Of course there are a few who think that a WSOP bracelet is piece of junk when others have so many bracelets that they even decide to sell 1 of them (I'm referring to Patrik Antonius and T.J. Cloutier). 

Anyhow, someone who's really longing for his very first bracelet this year is Tom "durrrr" Dwan. Dwan has been extremely successful online in the past few years and he has won over $50 million dollars throughout his career.

Posted on Tuesday, April 27, 2010 by "T".

Another week at the high stakes tables in now in the books. It was maybe not the most interesting week this year, even though so many big names played. Three players that were running extremely well last week were Phil Ivey ($1,289,691), Tom "durrrr" Dwan ($961,325) and Patrik Antonius ($666,711). It was a while ago since we saw such big names in top 3 of the weekly winners list.

Number 1 in the list of losing players is Ziigmund. What happened to Illari "Ziigmund" Sahamies? He was running so good in the beginning of the year, and now he's losing millions in no-time! I hope that Ziigmund can stop this loosing streak and get back in business. Well, its not the first time this happens to him, so I'm sure he knows how to deal with it.

Not long ago Tom Dwan offered Phil Ivey $1 million if he could stop eating meat for a whole year. Phil Ivey wanted $2 million dollars at first, but since he had thought about becoming a vegetarian anyway, he decided to accept the challenge.

The challenge was on and Phil Ivey "tried his very best" to stick to vegetarian food. Well, probably he didn't since it only took 3 weeks before he decided to give up and accept the fact that he cant be without meat.

Isildur1 lost big to Brian Hastings

Posted on Wednesday, March 17, 2010 by "T".

Isildur1 and Brian Hastings played heads-up on several PLO tables with the stakes $500/$1000 the other day. It started well for Brian Hastings who almost straight away won $300k from the mysterious Swede. Isildur1 fought back and managed to win back what he had lost plus another $400k after some time. However, it didn't take long before Hastings started taking down pot after pot. And after that Hastings had won over a million dollars, Isildur1 closed down all tables except 1.

This is of course nothing we are used to see when watching Isiludr1 playing. It could only mean one thing -- he was running out of money. However, the game continued and after that about 2800 hands had been played, they stopped. Hastings won $1,5 million from Isildur1.

HighStakes: durrrr finally got his revenge on Isildur1

Tags: durrrr, high stakes, isildur1
Posted on Friday, March 12, 2010 by "T".

Yesterday, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and the mysterious Swede Isildur1 played against each other once again. Isildur1 won many million dollars from durrrr last year and was probably planning on winning more in yesterdays session. However, it was Tom Dwan who dominated the game (six $300/$600 PLO tables) and after that they had played about 1000 hands, Tom Dwan had to stop playing due to a massage appointment. The massage must have felt extremely good for him as he won almost 1 million dollars.

Posted on Tuesday, March 09, 2010 by "T".

Tom Dwan had some great poker sessions last week. And in the end of last week, he had won almost 1,4 million dollars. Another 2 players that did very well last week were Ziigmund and the mysterious Swede Isiildur1. However, both of their winnings almost matched the amount which Tom Dwan won. 

Dwan has also been doing very well in the durrrr challenge against Patrik Antonius in the last few sessions. He's now has a lead with $1,755,708 after 33,242, of 50,000 hands have been played. 

They didn't do so well last week..
As usual, when some players win big - some have to lose as well! Here are last weeks biggest "losers" - Cole South (-$1,031,983), Patrik Antonius (-$766,477), PixKim (-$756,459), Brian Townsend (-$691,240) and Brian Hastings (-$489,084).

Posted on Wednesday, December 23, 2009 by "T".

Yesterday, it was finally time for another durrrr challenge session between Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Patrik Antonius. Lots of people rushed to their computers as 2 of the worlds best were about to play some real high stakes poker at Full Tilt. None of these people/spectators can have been disappointed with the action field game they got to watch.

During 7 hours, Dwan and Antonius played almost 2000 hands. And as usual when Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonius play against each other -the swings were enormous. Many times during this session, Patrik Antonius was in the lead and seemed to have everything under control, but Tom Dwan managed to fight back and make some great plays and also overtake the lead. After that the session was over, Tom Dwan had won another $225k from Antonius. This means that after almost 30,000 hands, Tom Dwan is in the lead with almost $940,000.

Isildur1 wins big again

Tags: durrrr, full tilt poker, Ilari Ziigmund Sahamies, Isildur1
Posted on Friday, November 20, 2009 by "T".

It seems like Isildur1 (a.k.a. The Unknown Swede) has no plans on giving up after losing $3,3 million to Patrik Antonius a few days ago. Because already the day after the big losing session he was once again playing on Full Tilt's high stake tables. This time Isildur1 took on Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies in heads-up and played his very best poker as he ended up winning $1,3 million in no time. This session must have meant a lot for Isildur1's confidence, and of course the high stakes scene will be much more interesting to follow with a player like Isildur1 who's not afraid of playing sky high stakes against the worlds best poker players.

Isildur1's winning streak is over

Posted on Tuesday, November 17, 2009 by "T".

Isildur1, the unknown Swede, has been on a roll since he started showing up at Full Tilt poker. Now, however, it seems like it all has come to an end referring to yesterday's big losing session versus Patrik Antonius. Patrik owned Isildur1 in PL Omaha and won over $3.4 million. Patrik has now won almost $8.500,000 million this year and is with that the second biggest winner online this year after Phil Ivey.

Isildur1 is still plus
Isildur1 is still over $2 million plus since he started playing at Full Tilt poker. Let's just hope for Isildur1's sake that he won't go on tilt now and that we will see more sessions between him and "durrrr", because it would be really sad if Isildur1 disappear from the high stakes scene as fast as Martonas did.

Posted on Monday, November 16, 2009 by "T".

Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies had a great session of poker last Saturday when he took on Tom "durrrr" Dwan at Full Tilt's high stake tables. After 1316 played hands, Ziigmund had won almost one million dollars! Most of this money came from Tom "durrrr" Dwan who has being losing really big money lately to the unknown Swede, "Isildur1". Dwan ended up losing a bit more than $800k on Saturday.

Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies is thanks to the great session on Saturday now $4,17 millions plus this year and also one of the biggest winners online. It's great to see that "Ziigmund" is back in business after the tilt sessions he had a few months back.

High Stakes: Dwan had to borrow money from Ilari Sahamies

Tags: durrrr, full tilt poker, high stakes, Isildur1, tom dwan
Posted on Friday, November 13, 2009 by "T".

The Swedish poker player, "Isildur1" keeps on winning big when he's playing against the American high stakes pro, Tom "durrrr" Dwan. It seems like "Isildur1"is very comfortable to play against one of the best high stakes players. When both of them were playing heads-up on Wednesday night and the Finnish poker pro Ilari Sahamies took a seat at their table, "Isildur1" instantly wrote in the chat that he wanted to play heads-up against Tom Dwan.

Sahamies left the table and the game could continue. After a while, however, Dwan ran out of money and had to ask Sahamies for $500,000. Sahamies gave him the money so he could continue playing, but the Swede kept on winning. When both of them decided to call it a day, "Isildur1" had won another $600,000 from Tom Dwan.

Posted on Wednesday, November 11, 2009 by "T".

Tom "durrrr" Dwan, the new Team Full Tilt member, had a really tough time when he took on the unknown Swede, "Isildur1" on Sunday night. The unknown Swede won $810,00 in Texas Holdem and $409,000 in Omaha.

In total he won $1,219,000 with other words. Most of this money came from durrrr himself. The unknown Swede owned durrrr this time, but as we all know, durrrr is probably not crying out loud for this loss, and probably he will get his revenge on "Isildur1" sooner or later. It just a matter of time!

HighStakes: Gus Hansen takes a break from the highest stakes

Tags: durrrr, full tilt poker, gus hansen, high stakes, patrik antonius
Posted on Monday, September 07, 2009 by "T".

The past few days, Gus Hansen, the Danish poker pro, has been playing on much lower stakes than he usually does. There are many theories why he has moved down in stakes. One of them is that his bankroll isn't what it used to be, and therefore he can't afford to play against "durrrr", Patrik Antonius, Phil Ivey, and other big names at the highest stakes. Another theory is that he finds the opponents at the lower stakes much weaker. 

So how is Gus doing at the lower stakes?
It seems like he is doing very well at the lower stakes. He also seems to play more comfortable there than at the highest stakes at Full Tilt poker. It will be very interesting to see if he stick to the "lower stakes", or if he decides to move up in stakes again. However, Gus Hansen, has had a rough 2009 with around 2 million dollars lost, and most probably much more on other things next the poker. For example he lost a lot of money when the best tennis player in the world (Rafael Nadal) surprisingly lost against the Swede Robin Söderling in French open.

"martonas" - no longer a winner

Tags: durrrr, full tilt poker, martonas, phil ivey, tom dwan
Posted on Monday, August 24, 2009 by "T".

"Martonas", or "the unknown Swede" as many people call him, came from nowhere and played against some of the biggest names in the world of poker. After a week of playing he had already won 2.5 million dollars, most of the winnings from just one heads-up session versus Tom "durrr" Dwan. A few days later, Tom Dwan, got his revenge.

He won back everything he had lost to "martonas" plus some more before he decided to end the session and get some sleep. "Martonas", continued playing against Phil Ivey and other big names after this big loss. He won back a lot of money he had lost and it seemed like he would be back on track again shortly. But, the poker gods had other plans for the unknown Swede. "maratonas", can't get anything going at the moment and the winnings fail to come day after day. According to different sources he's now $1 million minus after just a few months of playing under the alias "martonas". Now the big question is. How much longer can "martonas" afford to play at the highest stakes at Full Tilt poker before the bankroll takes too much damage?

Million Dollar Challenge: Sammy George isn't afraid of "durrrr"

Tags: durrrr, million dollar challenge, phil ivey, sammy george, tom dwan
Posted on Thursday, August 20, 2009 by "T".

Sammy "any two" George, from England, is one of the players that Tom "durrrr" Dwan will play against in his new challenge later this year. Sammy George, is not a very well known name in the world of poker, but he's very well known and also a highly respected high stakes player in England. Even though Sammy George knows he's going to play Omaha PL or Holdem NL $500/$5000 with a minimum buy-in of $500,000 against one of the most successful online players, he's not afraid at all.

"I'm not afraid to play against players like Tom Dwan on these stakes. If you ask me, I think that Tom Dwan is just an average player. Nothing special at all! Of course there are players that I have a lot of respect for. Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius are two of them"; Sammy says.

Unknown Swede won over half a million from "durrrr"

Tags: durrrr, full tilt poker, high stakes, martonas, swede, tom dwan
Posted on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 by "K".

Tom "durrrr" Dwan, is one of the best and most well known high stakes players in the world. "durrrr" had a really tough start of the year and he lost a lot of money, but then he managed to win back everything he had lost plus a lot more. Now he's one of the biggest winners this year and once again he showed the world why he's one of the best high stakes players.

Thanks to his great success during his short poker career, he has been nominated to poker hall of fame this year. However, there is not a big possibility that he will be inducted this year as he's up against Phil Ivey, Barry Greenstein, Dan Harrington, Tom McEvoy, Men Nguyen, Scotty Nguyen, Mike Sexton, Eric Seidel, and Daniel Negreanu.

Posted on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 by "T".

Last Friday we wrote about Nicki "Kaibuxxe" Jedlicka from Austria who won many million dollars online back in 2007, but then lost most of his bankroll to Phil Ivey and other pros. After that, Nicki Jedlicka disappeared from the high stakes scene and not until a few weeks ago he started showing up on the highest tables at Full Tilt poker. He started off by winning around $1 million in just 24 hours, most of it from Tom "Durrrr" Dwan, the American high stakes pro. That win truly whetted his appetite for playing more high stakes poker. Last Sunday Jedlicka took on Patrik Antonius and played the poker of his life. It was in this session, Jedlicka won one of his biggest pots ever - $409,481.
