Tom ’durrrr’ Dwan has flopped two pairs for a gargantuan pot against a Chinese businessman in Macau.
Although high stakes games in the StarWorld Casino on Macau are constantly running, only a handful of celebrated pros have shown up at the tables in the past days. Among the few who have, however, are Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and Andrew Robl, according to Poker Portal Asia. What is more, they are doing just fine, to say the least; ‘durrrr’ has just won a gigantic pot of HKD 30,000,000 or $3,800,000.

Although the games now run on HKD 30,000/HKD 60,000 ($3,850/$7,700), Dwan’s session was played on a somewhat lower stake of HKD 10,000/HKD 20,000 ($1,300/$2,600). Unfortunately, Poker Portal Asia is unable to report on the details of the match; apparently, ‘durrrr’ held AT and his Chinese businessman villain had A2, while the flop came AT2. The raising rampage that followed led to both players shoving what they got but the turn and river cards were neutral.

It was not the first time ‘durrrr’ played for a million dollar pot, though:



It appears that Robl is doing well in Maca, too, even though no exact figures have been released. Still, he has effortlessly paid the buy-in for the WSOP $1,000,000 Big One event, which he tweeted about on 7 May. Another of the Macau regulars, Sam Trickett also communicated his participation, a day after Robl.
