It was a great Friday for Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and not so great of a day for Gus Hansen, as Hansen managed to make Dwan over half a million dollars richer over a few sessions of poker.

The two started off the day with a $150k pot. Gus Hansen was dealt AA and re-raised Dwan’s button raise to $9k. Dwan called and the flop came 2h Kc Jd. Hansen bet out $12k with his overpair and was re-raised by Dwan to $54k. Hansen pushed all in over Dwan’s re-raise and Dwan called off the $12.6k he had remaining. Dwan turned over Ts Qs for an open ended straight draw and was in trouble as Hansen held 2 of his 8 outs. The turn came the 7h and was no help for Dwan, however a rivered ace gave Dwan the nuts and he sucked out to win the $150k.

The two continued to battle it out heads up and would soon build up another pot worth nearly $150k. Dwan raised from the button to $3k and Hansen would again re-raise to $9k. Dwan called Hansen’s raise and the flop came 6d 3d 8s. Hansen led out with an $11k bet and had Dwan call behind. The turn brought the 4s and Hansen again put out a bet, this time of $30k. Dwan then re-raised enough to put Hansen all in, and Hansen indeed called for the $21.5k he had left. Dwan turned over Ks Ts for two overcards and a flush draw, however Hansen showed Ah 8h and was a favorite to win the hand. The river brought the 8d and Hansen made three of a kind. Dwan missed his draw and Hansen took down the nearly $143 pot.

With Hansen almost back to even the two continued to play and once again stirred up a big pot. Hansen raised from the button to $3k and Dwan re-raised it up to $9k.

Hansen pushed all in, but the raise was only for another 3.6k and Dwan called. Dwan showed QQ which had Hansen’s Js 9c crushed. The river came the 4c and Dwan took down the $140k pot.

The last big pot in the heads up match between the two was worth $116k. Hansen raised to $3k from the button preflop and Dwan re-popped it to $9k and was called by Hansen.

After that hand, OMGClayAiken took a seat with the two to make it a three way game, however the action was still mostly between Dwan and Hansen. In the next big pot at the table, Hansen raised from the button to $3.5k and Dwan would re-raise to $11.5k. OMGClayAiken folded and Hansen called in position to see the flop of 4h 9c Jh. Dwan checked the action to Hansen who bet out $24k. Hansen then typed “no folding” into chat and got just his wish as Dwan pushed all in. Hansen called off his remaining $23.7k and showed 8h Th which would need to catch a straight card or runner-runner flush cards to beat Dwan’s 9s 9h for three of a kind. The turn brought no help for Hansen with the Kc and the river was no different with the 6d. Dwan’s hand was good enough to take down the nearly $120k pot.
