The first seven episodes of the “Judi Online” cash game on “Poker After Dark” have now aired (eight if you include the first “Director’s Cut”, and Tom “durrrr” Dwan continues to lead in terms of overall profits.
Dwan, who originally bought in for $250k, continues to hover around the $520k mark. Much of Dwan’s $250k+ in profits came from two big hands against Patrik Antonius and Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies that were aired last week.
Phil Ivey and Eli Elezra continue to remain profitable, although Elezra lost a large chunk of his stack trying to bluff when Ivey had flopped a set of twos.
Ilari Sahamies continues to be the biggest loser of the two-week series, and has had to rebuy multiple times.
After getting off to a really bad start in episode #1 of the show, Howard Lederer has been pretty quiet, and is still in the red.
Patrik Antonius, after digging himself into $100k+ hole, has nearly returned to profitability, thanks in large part to a big pot that was played against “Ziigmund”. Antonius flopped trip sevens and managed to catch “Ziigmund” in a stone-cold bluff.
There were four interesting hands this episode:
1. Phil Ivey vs Tom Dwan. Ivey and Dwan played a game of chicken pre-flop, getting into a major raising war while both holding marginal hands.
Ivey held 10-8 of diamonds while Dwan held 7-8 offsuit. Ivey came over the top of a 30k re-raise from Dwan, forcing “durrrr” to instantly muck his hand.
2. Phil Ivey vs Antonius vs Eli Elezra. Elezra raised pre-flop holding A-Q offsuit, Ivey called with 2-2, Antonius put in another raise holding A-K suited, and Elezra and Ivey both called.
The flop came 4-2-6 with two spades, giving Ivey a set of twos.
