Tom "durrrr" Dwan is rumored to have picked up one of the biggest pots ever to be won in the million dollar cash games in Macau. According to local reports, Dwan scooped in a single hand worth $3.8 million.
The big cash games in Macau are up and running yet again, and has seen some remarkable action lately, according to reports coming from Pokerportal.asia
The site has followed the Macau games closely since they broke out a year and a half ago, and has often provided updates about the winners and the losers of the action.
In its most recent update, the portal reports that the biggest of the Macau games has been running for the past week, although the big names have been largely absent.
Only Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Andrew Robl have joined in, but especially for Dwan it seems to have been time well spent at the tables after he reportedly won what is described as a record hand worth $3.8 million.
While details about the specific hand are unconfirmed, it appears that Dwan ended all-in with an unnamed Chinese businessman in a game of HKD $10,000/ HKD $20,000, or roughly USD $1,300/$2,600.
Dwan was holding ace-ten against his opponent's ace-deuce when the flop came ace-ten-deuce, giving both players two pair.
The money went in on the flop, and after blanks on both river and turn, Dwan could scoop in the record pot of $3.8 million US dollar.
The pot is the biggest yet to come out of the Macau rumor mill so far, although others have reportedly cashed in similar amounts from single hands in the multi-million dollar games.
These include Sam Trickett and Gus Hansen, who have both picked up pots worth more than $2 million in recent months.
Meanwhile, Robl also seems to be in good shape after his many hours spent at the Macau cash game tables, as he this week became the latest player to confirm his participation in the $1 million buy-in BIG ONE For ONE DROP WSOP Super High Roller this summer.
"Excited to play poker for big money and help charity by playing the $1,000,000 tournament for @ONEDROPdotorg at the WSOP this summer," Robl tweeted
about the tournament, which was announced earlier this year as a special collaboration between the WSOP and Canadian billionaire Guy Laliberté from the ONE DROP Foundation.
So far, around 40 players have signed up for the event, leaving only a handful of empty seats left for a limited number of online and liver qualifiers.
