The Online Railbird Report: Dwan Dominates

The Online Railbird Report: Dwan Dominates 0001

The seven-figure swings just don't stop. Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies were back at it the past few days in the high-stakes cash games on Full Tilt, and this time, it was "durrrr" getting the best of the Fin. Dwan bested Sahamies en route to making back the $1.5 Million he had lost the previous few days by winning some monster hands.

The two were playing $500/$1,000 pot-limit Omaha and Samamies raised to $3,000 on the button. This was raised to $9,000 by Dwan in the big blind and Sahamies made the call leading to a {4-Spades}{J-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop. Dwan checked and Sahamies bet $13,000, quickly getting called by Dwan. The {6-Spades} turn card brought more of the same with Dwan check-callling a pot-sized bet of $44,000. The river delivered the {8-Diamonds} and Dwan checked for a third time. Sahamies bet the $132,000 pot and Dwan put in just a little bit more to go all-in for $145,000. Sahamies called and mucked his hand when Dwan tabled {9-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{10-Spades} for the nut straight, winning the $423,000 pot.

They were involved in several other big pots, deciding to run several of them twice. In one of them, Dwan raised to $3,000 on the button and Sahamies popped it to $9,000 in the big blind. Dwan four-bet to $27,000 and Sahamies made the call. The flop fell {7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{A-Spades} and a raising war ensued. In the end, they got it in for a total of $454,000. Dwan tabled {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} for top set and the nut-flush draw, while Sahamies showed {10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{4-Spades} for a straight draw and an inferior flush draw. After deciding to run it twice, the {9-Spades} turn and {6-Clubs} river sent one half to Dwan, while the {K-Spades} turn and {7-Hearts} river on the other half filled Dwan up again, sending the entire pot his way.

Dwan also took both ends of a $446,000 pot that they ran twice. This time, they got it all-in after a {9-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{J-Hearts} flop. Although he only held one pair, Dwan's {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{J-Clubs} was a favorite against Samamies' {10-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. The first board completed with running queens making a full house for Dwan while the second brought a {3-Diamonds} turn and {5-Diamonds} river, giving Dwan jacks and threes to once again scoop the entire pot.
