There seems to be no stopping the wild and crazy action at tables RailHeaven and GusHeaven at Full Tilt Poker. The record for biggest online pot ever is broken regularly, and this weekend it was time again.
All the regular high-rollers were playing at the $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em tables and several million dollars were in play in total. If you want to follow the crazy action, simply make a Full Tilt Poker download and take your place on the virtual rails.
The record-breaking hand started with Urindanger raising to $3,000 from the cut-off. Elmariachimachio called from the button and durrrr re-raised to $16,300. Urindanger now raised to $45,000, Elmariachimachio got out of the way, but durrrr called.
The flop came 5c-9h-4h. durrrr cheched and Urindanger bet $52,700. durrrr raised to $39,500, and Urindanger moved all-in for $314,970.50 in total. Durrrr, who hade his opponent covered made the call but was in bad shape with Kc-Kd against Ac-Ad.
The 3d came on the turn and the 6h came on the river. Urindanger's aces held up and he won the gigantic $723,938 pot.
Tough for durrrr who actually lost a $678,069 pot to John Juanda with aces against kings is the same session. The players ended up all-in pre-flop but Juanda sucked out with a king on the river.
Maybe John Juanda looked like this when the king fell on the river.
Despite all this, Tom "durrrr" Dwan has shown phenomenal results the last few weeks. According to the latest stats he is up over $2 million in October.
