Sami “LarsLuzak” Kelopuro and Tom “durrrr” Dwan are two names you see playing the highest of stakes on Full Tilt Poker all the time. This weekend the two decided to battle it out heads up on several tables more than once. By the end of Sunday though, only one would be able to sleep well knowing that he had taken over $800k from the other. The action between the two would get started at a 500/1000 no limit table on Saturday afternoon.

It didn’t take long for the match to get heated up, as one of the first pots between the two reached just over $75k. Dwan would raise from the button to $2700 and Kelopuro would call from the big blind. The flop came Qh Qs 6h and Kelopuro would lead out for $4k. Dwan called the bet and the turn brought the 3c.  Kelopuro would bet again, putting out another $9k that was called by Dwan. The river was the 5h and Kelopuro bet $22k. Dwan called this final river bet and Kelopuro showed QT for three queens. Dwan mucked his hand and Kelopuro took down the $75k pot.

Not long after, the two drummed up a pot that reached almost $100k. Kelopuro would raise from the button to $2800 and Dwan would call from the big blind. The flop came 7c 8d 9d and Dwan checked it to Kelopuro who bet $4400. Dwan immediately pushed his entire $43.5k stack into the pot, and, after some thinking, Kelopuro made the call. Dwan showed 7h 6h for bottom pair and an open ended straight draw. Kelopuro, however, was slightly ahead with his Kh Ks. Dwan would need a five, six, or ten on the turn or river to give him the win. The turn was the 2c and no help for Dwan. The river paired up the board with another 9 and Kelopuro scooped up another huge pot of just over $90k.

The two would take a break from the tables for a few hours, but in the evening would again mix it up at the same table. In the first big hand of this match, Kelopuro would raise from the button to $3000 and Dwan would re-pop it to $8400. Kelopuro would call and the flop came 4c 7d 7h. Dwan bet out $7700, however Kelopuro then shoved all in behind him. Dwan would make the call for the rest of his $27.5k stack and show 9d Ad. Although Dwan’s hand was not that great, it was still ahead of Kelopuro’s 8c Tc. Dwan just needed to dodge eights and tens on the turn and river to take down the nearly $90k pot. The turn was the 6d, which knocked out two of Kelopuro’s outs and made him an even bigger underdog. The river was the 3s and Dwan took down the pot with his ace kicker.

The pots only got bigger between the two, as the next big one slightly surpassed $135k. Kelopuro would raise from the button to $3000 with 4c Ac. Dwan reraised it to $8400 and was called by Kelopuro. The flop came Th 5h 7c and both players would check to the turn which was the Kc. Dwan bet out $11.4k on the turn and Kelopuro called with his nut flush draw. The Jc on the river was a beautiful card for Kelopuro as he made his nut flush, and an even more beautiful site was Dwan pushing his nearly $50k into the pot. Kelopuro obviously called the shove and showed his nut flush, which was miles and miles ahead of Dwan’s complete bluff with 2d Qd. Kelopuro would pick up the $135k+ from the table, and Dwan would reload once again.

The two then began to multitable the 500/1000 games, playing two heads up matches at once. Again, it wouldn’t take long for the two to get it all in, creating a $99k pot. Kelopuro raised to $3000 from the button. Dwan would reraise this to $8400 and Kelopuro would push all in, raising it up to just over $50k. Dwan would call off his remaining $41,100 and show pocket tens. Kelopuro would show A7 and was drawing to three outs. The flop came Qd Ks Kd and was no help to Kelopuro. A 9 on the turn nearly sealed the deal for Dwan, and the ten on the river finished it. Dwan would finally take a bite back out of Kelopuro with the $99k win.

Shortly after, the two again would push the pot even higher. This time it topped out at just under $110k. Kelopuro again raised from the button to $3k, and Dwan once again reraised it to $8400. Kelopuro called and the flop came Qc 3d 9d. Dwan led out $9300 and Kelopuro pushed all in, raising it up to just over $46k. Dwan called and showed pocket aces, but he had to dodge diamonds as Kelopuro showed 5d 8d for a flush draw. The turn brought the 2c, which changed nothing. The river brought the 5h, and also brought the $110k pot to Tom Dwan.

Kelopuro would buy in for the max after this, giving both players $100k or more in their stacks. This of course led to a nearly $215k pot shortly after. Kelopuro would raise to $3k from the button and Dwan would call. The flop came 5d 7d 9s and Dwan bet out $4800. This bet was reraised to $14k by Kelopuro, and Dwan made the call. The turn brought the 2h and this time Dwan checked the action to Kelopuro, who bet $28k. Dwan came over the top, pushing all in, which would force Kelopuro to call his remaining $62k stack off. Kelopuro would call though, and show JJ for an overpair. This was crushing Dwan who flipped over Q9 and needed to spike a queen or nine on the river. The river brought the 3s though, and Kelopuro took down the $213.5k pot, the biggest so far in this heads up battle.

In the next big hand of the match, Kelopuro raised from the button to $3k with 3c Jd and would be called by Dwan. The flop came 7c 2h Jh and Dwan checked the action to Kelopuro, who bet $4k. Dwan reraised this up to $13.7k and Kelopuro made the call with top pair. The turn came the 5d and Dwan would bet out nearly $24k, which was again called by Kelopuro. The river was another J, and Kelopuro would take Dwan to value town once again with a $32k bet. Dwan would call and muck his hand when Kelopuro showed three of a kind. The nearly $150k pot would once again slide to the Finnish player.

In the next big pot, Dwan raised to $3k from the button and Kelopuro called from the big blind. The flop was Js Kc 4s and Kelopuro checked it to Dwan who bet out $4800. The bet was called and the turn brought the 3c. This time Kelopuro led out with a bet of slightly over $11k. Dwan shoved all in over top of Kelopuro, raising the bet up to over $60k. Kelopuro called and showed Kd 6s but was already drawing dead to Dwan’s Kh Jc. Finally Dwan managed to pick up a big pot, this one totally nearly $140k.

Shortly after that hand, things were again looking good for Dwan as he was dealt Ks Ac. Kelopuro was on the button and raised it up to $3k. Dwan three bet the pot to $9k and Kelopuro made the call. The flop came Kc Jc 7d, giving Dwan top pair top kicker, and he led out for $10400. Kelopuro smooth called and the turn was the Js. Dwan again bet out, this time $23.7k, which was called by Kelopuro. The river brought the 6h and Dwan pushed all in for nearly $90k. Kelopuro made the call and showed Qc Jd for three of a kind, and once again he added a huge amount to his stack with the $260k+ pot.

In the next big hand, Kelopuro was the one dealt AK, and he would 3 bet Dwan’s button raise up to $11k from the big blind. Dwan would call the extra $8k and see a flop of Kd 2h 8s. With top pair, Kelopuro bet out $14k and was called by Dwan. The turn was the 5h, and again Kelopuro led the action by betting $36k. Dwan again called behind and the river brought the 9s. Kelopuro then bet enough to put Dwan all in, and Dwan called off the rest of his nearly $70k chips. Kelopuro showed his top pair top kicker. Dwan turned over pocket fives for a set and this time the $260k would be going his way.

On the other table, where the stacks were not so ridiculous, Dwan was dealt Ac 9c and raised to $3k from the button. Kelopuro would reraise this to just over $11k and Dwan would call. The flop came Kc Ts 5d and Kelopuro bet $14k. Dwan called behind with ace high and the turn came the 8c, giving him a flush draw. This time the action was checked through and the river dropped the Jc on the board, giving Dwan the nut flush. Kelopuro checked again to Dwan, who bet enough to put Kelopuro all in. Kelopuro called the $67k he had left and would be disappointed to see Dwan’s cards as he lost the nearly $185k pot.

The action continued with yet another huge pot shortly afterwards. Kelopuro raised from the button to $3k and Dwan three bet to $9k. Kelopuro called the reraise and the flop came 5d Jd Kc. Dwan bet out $10400 and Kelopuro called behind. The 9c fell on the turn and Dwan bet almost $24k. This time Kelopuro shoved it in behind him, raising it up to just over $84k. Dwan called and showed 6d Kd for top pair, but he was dead to Kelopuro’s two pair with Ks 9d. Yet another $200k+ pot would go the way of the Finnish player.

Two tables of 500/1000 were obviously not enough for the two players, as they started a third heads up match at yet another 500/1000 table. In the first big pot at this table, Kelopuro would raise to $3k from the button, only to be reraised by Dwan to $9k. Kelopuro called Dwan’s reraise and the flop came Jh 4h 8s. Dwan bet out $10400 and Kelopuro called behind. The turn came the Qd and both players checked to the river which was the 7h. Dwan then bet out slightly over $29k and Kelopuro just called behind. Dwan showed Jc 6c for a pair of jacks, but Kelopuro turned over 9h Qs for queens and took down the nearly $100k pot.

In the last big pot of Saturday’s action, Dwan raised to $3k from the button and Kelopuro called from the big blind. The flop came 7s 4d Ah and Kelopuro bet out $5k. Dwan reraised it to $15.4k and Kelopuro called to see the turn, which was the 8d. This time Kelopuro checked the action to Dwan, who bet $23.7k only to have Kelopuro shove over the top. Dwan folded his hand and Kelopuro collected nearly $85k from the pot without a showdown.

There wasn’t nearly as much action on Sunday, but several big pots were still thrown around between the two players once again. In the first big pot of the day, Kelopuro raised from the button to $3k. Dwan reraised it to $9k and Kelopuro called to see the flop, which came 9h Kd Ks. Dwan bet out $10400 and Kelopuro called behind. The turn brought the Td, and with it came a whole lot of action. Dwan bet out nearly $24k, and Kelopuro reraised that to $52k. Dwan then pushed all in and Kelopuro called the nearly $60k more. Kelopuro showed Qc Jd for a king high straight, and Dwan had Js As for a three outer to win. The river was no savior for Dwan, and Kelopuro scooped up nearly $260k from the hand.

In the next big pot, Kelopuro was dealt Ah Th on the button and raised it up to $3k. Dwan again reraised to $9k and was again called by Kelopuro. The flop came Ad 5h 6d, which again triggered some crazy action. Dwan led out for $10400, only to have Kelopuro push all in from behind him with his top pair. Dwan called the almost $50k push from Kelopuro and showed pocket nines, and once again was way behind in the hand. The turn was the 2c, and Dwan needed to hit a two outer on the river to win the pot. The river sealed the deal however, with the 6s, and Kelopuro took down the $138k in chips.

Again both players would get it all in not even five minutes after the previous hand. Dwan would raise from the button to $3k and Kelopuro would call. The flop came Ts 6s 5d and Kelopuro checked it to Dwan, who bet $4800. Kelopuro reraised this up to $13k, only to have Dwan four bet to just under $30k. Kelopuro would then go all in and Dwan would call the $45k more. Dwan turned over Qc Td for top pair and was ahead of Kelopuro’s As 8s for the moment. However, Dwan needed to dodge any of the remaining spades and aces in the deck on both the turn and the river. The turn brought the Kd, a safe card for Dwan. The river was bad news though, with the 4s, which gave Kelopuro his flush and yet another $75k of Dwan’s money.

The second last big pot between the two for the weekend totaled just over $131k. Kelopuro raised to $3k from the button and was called by Dwan. The flop came 3d 4d 3h and Dwan checked to Kelopuro who bet out $4k. Dwan check raised however, driving the bet up to $11.7k. Kelopuro called the reraise and the turn came the 2d. Dwan led the turn with a bet of $17.3k, which was called by Kelopuro. The river was the 5d which slowed Dwan down as he checked. Kelopuro bet enough to put Dwan all in, and despite the scary board Dwan called the almost $34k he had left in his stack. Kelopuro turned over the ace of diamonds for a straight flush that Dwan couldn’t beat, and took down the pot.

In the final hand between the two for the weekend, Kelopuro raised to $3k preflop. Dwan called from the big blind and the flop came Kd 3h 4d. Dwan checked the action to Kelopuro, who bet $4k. Dwan again check raised it to $12.6k, which was called by Kelopuro. The turn brought the Ac, and Dwan led out for $23.7k. Kelopuro then pushed his stack in behind Dwan, who would make the call for another $60,700. Dwan showed 7d Ad for top pair and a flush draw. His top pair however was already no good, as Kelopuro flipped over 5s 2s for a straight. Dwan needed to hit a diamond on the river, or he would lose yet another $200k pot. The river came the Qc, and Kelopuro finished off the weekend with a bang, collecting Dwan’s entire $100k stack after the hand.

It was a great weekend for those on the rail and even greater for Sami Kelopuro, as he walked away with over $800k of Tom Dwan’s money after a long weekend of heads up play. Dwan on the other hand could probably use a drink or two, but I am sure we will see him back at the tables in no time.
