I've been glancing at these two go at it for hours now.
Dwan is said to be one of the premier players who came up through the online ranks in the past couple years. They were more or less going back and forth playing even poker, their stacks around the same amount for a while, up until I caught this hand.

They're playing 2 tables $500/1000$ Ivey Deathmatch and Thunderdome heads-up. I just had to post this hand. The money that flew is unbelievable. At most it's $10k to $20k on a big pot, but I can't even imagine pushing $125k all-in against Ivey, into a pot in one hand in a ring game. It seems he's even got him tilting a bit now, taking another half of the 125k Durrrr bought in for after his all-in loss at the same table, but then again Durrrr just made an good call with a straight in hand with 4 spades on the board and Ivey betting into him, neither flushing.

durrrr started w/ only $50,000 & now obviously has all of that...Ivey is durrr's bank. Everytime i see them play, Ivey reloads a ton.

Ah. I see. That would explain a lot. It's too bad Ivey looks like he's ripping him a new one on both tables tonight. It would be interesting to see who's REALLY ahead for the night or as far as heads-up lifetime play goes.

The Omaha hand where Ivey went runner runner to get the wheel ended up at like $217,000. At one point I thought Durr would go on tilt after Ivey's wheel hit but Durr turned it around.

I prefer not to play any real games on the weekend due to the play and like to keep their tables open when doing other things, so they're battling it out again now. Day after day it seems they're playing each other.

Tom aka durrr seems like an incredible player. For the two days I've watched he's made Ivey look like an amateur a greater percentage of the time. Ivey seems to be card dead or something, chasing, betting with nothing, and Tom seems to know when his Ace high, mid pair, is good etc. It's surprising how bad he's making Ivey look IMO.

Ok. They're done until maybe later.
Tom hit some great hands against Ivey's great hands. He left with about $300k+ on the left table and more than $100k+ on the right...I can't exactly remember the right. Ivey had enough, but was even gracious about losing.

I believe it's 50 cents a hand no matter what happens. It looks like at such high limits that's what they set it at to be nice.

I think, dont quote me on this, but i think that rake is 50 cents at all heads up tables, no matter how big the pot is.#
