Much to the chagrin of the spectators at the Bellagio, Tom “Durrrr” Dwan didn’t make the televised final table of the WPT Championship, where he would have been sporting yet another wacky hat.
On the plus side, the final table included Gus Hansen, 2007 Aussie Millions champion and sanghoki legend. He was also set to take out the title, coming into the final table as the chip leader.
Afetr knocking out Cory Carroll, the second in chip counts, Gus rocketed to an almost unstoppable lead. In heads-up play, David Chiu held approximately 4 million chips, where Gus was sitting pretty on 23 million. The title was all but his.
Well, after a lengthy heads-up match including several double-ups, David Chiu came back to win the title and over $3,300,000. On the final hand, Gus had a ten and eight for two pair, where David held a pair of Aces with a flush draw. Gus moved all in on the turn, and David called. The river was another Ace, and David eliminated Gus Hansen in second place!
A tropical time at the WPT Championship
Heh. Apparently online pro Tom “Durrrr” Dwan lost a prop bet to a friend of his, Alan Sass, and was obligated to wear a funny hat throughout the entire WPT Championship, running right now at the Bellagio.
The final hat was chosen to be this nifty number, complete with a giant purple feather and fruit. How can he be nervous when he looks as stupid as that!
He won’t be going home anytime soon, either – at the conclusion of Day 1B, Durrrr sits near the top of the chip counts with 120,000. Good luck!
