As <a href="http://www.rakerace.com/news/poker-tournaments/durrrr-ivey-juanda-and-giang-cash-game-madness-in-macau/"><strong>we already reported</strong></a>, <strong>Tom<em> 'durrrr'</em> Dwan</strong> and his fellow poker pros are playing against Chinese businessmen at the cash game tables of Macau. The game broke last night, and the pros head back home, supposedly with lots of cash on them.

Tom 'durrrr' Dwan

The game began for Dwan at high stakes ($4000/8000) on November 18th at the StarWorld Casino in Macau. Even though his opponent, the Chinese is a constant loser, he won the first heads-up againt Dwan, who handed him over $2,5 million.

The second heads-up however brought victory to the young american player, who cashed around $9 million, according to 2+2 forum user, voycontodo, who was at the scene.

Of course neither the Chinese businessmen nor the pros are happy about such specific numbers surfacing, many of the 'bloggers' have been warned to stop broadcasting. Hence, the numbers mentioned are highly unreliable. However, according to their info, despite his huge victory on Sunday, durrrr is still down in the heads-up. This is curious, as we don't really see how can he be down with $2,5 million loss and $9 million win, but there are other high stakes players there, who might influence durrrr's bankroll.

According to the latest post by Matt Savage, APT's tournament director, Phil Ivey already left Macau and is now in the United States. Durrrr told him he'll stay a little more just to relax. He has some time until but soon has to be in the US for the filming of High Stakes Poker Season 7. Savage tells readers both Ivey and durrrr finished the cash games with profit.
