"Isildur1" Returns to Full Tilt Poker, Second "durrrr Challenge" ResumesPublished on October 5th, 2010 7:23 am EST
An insanely busy September for the poker world has now wrapped up, and many of poker's top names have returned home after a month-long stay in London.
September featured the World Series of Poker Europe, EPT London and World Championship of Online Poker. This was a particularly busy month, which meant that many of poker's top names stayed far away from the high stakes cash games on Full Tilt Poker.
Now that the EPT London has come to a close, many of poker's top cash game players (including Phil Ivey and Tom "durrrr" Dwan) have made their returns to Full Tilt Poker.
The result? A crazy few days that featured million dollar swings, the reappearance of "Isildur1" and the resumption of the second "durrrr Challenge".
Tom "durrrr" Dwan made up for lost time yesterday by engaging in a wild PLO battle against Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies. The result? A one-sided thrashing that saw Dwan win approximately $1.2 million from "Ziigmund" in less than 1,000 hands.
Thanks in large part to this magical session against "Ziigmund", Dwan was able to bank over $1.5 million on the day, bringing his total profit on Full Tilt Poker for the year up to over $4.4 million. Dwan is now the most profitable cash game player on FTP in 2010 once again, passing Daniel "jungleman12" Cates who currently sits with a profit of over $3.65 million on the year.
Speaking of "jungleman12", Dwan and "jungleman12" resumed the second "durrrr Challenge" earlier this week. The session was a short one, lasting just over an hour. Dwan ended up with a tiny profit ($1,429.50) after the 582 hand session came to an end.
"jungleman12" currently has a lead of around $690k in the challenge, with 7,402 of the 50,000 hands having been completed. You can expect that "durrrr Challenge" #2 will be much more active in October now that the WSOPE and EPT London have come to a close.
"Isildur1" has also made his return to the high stakes cash games on Full Tilt Poker over the past few days, doing battle against both Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Daniel "jungleman12" Cates.
"Isildur1" managed to win $100k+ off of Dwan. However, unfortunately for "Isildur1" fans, he also lost about $150k to "jungleman12", despite getting off to a very strong start.
The good news is that "Isildur1" seems to have a bankroll again, which probably means that there will be plenty of action on FTP over the coming days and weeks.
