It was a crazy night at the high stakes tables on Full Tilt Poker last night. Many of the nosebleed stake tables were buzzing with action most of the night, but RailHeaven lived up to its name as it saw the record for biggest online pot fall…multiple times.

Tom “durrrr” Dwan and “LarsLuzak” started the action off for the night with the first record breaking pot, which totaled a massive $617,968. LarsLuzak had position on durrrr and raised it up pre-flop, with durrrr calling him. The flop came 9c 5d 2s and durrrr check-raised, with LarsLuzak calling. The turn was the Ac and this time durrrr lead out for over $24k and was called. The river brought the 7h and with the pot already pushing the $100k mark, durrrr put in a bet of around $69k. LarsLuzak then pushed his entire stack of $271k into the middle and was called by durrrr. LarsLuzak turneds over a 6 and a 4, for a stone cold bluff and durrrr showed A9 for two pair and scooped up the record setting pot.

This record didn’t last long however, as the table filled up with some more big names with even bigger stacks. Durrrr was again involved in the second record setting pot, this time with Full Tilt Pro John Juanda. There was a raise and flat call in front of Juanda, who re-raised. Durrrr, yet to act, then three betted the pot up to around $45k. Two folds put the action back to Juanda, who thought for a bit before raising again to over $100k, only to have durrrr push all in. Juanda responded with “so sick”, thinks some more, and calls. We have all seen what happens next many times. Durrrr showed AA and was way ahead of Juanda’s KK which needed to improve fast. The flop came with no help for Juanda, as did the turn, and Juanda’s only hope was a K on the river. Amazingly Juanda hit his two-outer and took down the record setting pot of $678,069. Not only did durrrr lose over $300k, he was also dethroned as the winner of the largest pot in online history.

The new record however, stood for less than five minutes as several hands later Juanda battled it out with Phil Ivey. Juanda raised from late position and durrrr put in the rest of his stack (which by now was less than $2.5k). Ivey re-raised Juanda, who then three-bet the pot once again. Ivey called and the flop came Ac 5s Ts. Ivey checked to Juanda who put in a pot size bet, only to have Ivey shove for another $175k. Juanda called and showed his Ks 8s. He needed a spade or running straight cards to beat Ivey’s set of 10s. The turn was a brick and this time the river was no help to Juanda, leaving Ivey with the record and an astounding $687,021.

The night ended with the record being broken three times within a span of five hours. However, with more big action going on today, who knows how long this record will last.

UPDATE:

The record stood for less than 12 hours as “Urindanger” won the following 723k pot against “durrrr” (who happened to be involved in all four record breaking pots, sadly for him he only won one of them):
