Tom Dwan Defeats Gus Hansen in Full Tilt Poker Event

On May 6th, 2009, after losing more than $300,000 to poker pro Patrik Antonius in the latest challenge session, Tom Dwan recorded a historic $1 million win against renowned Danish poker player Patrik Antonius.

The pair fights it out on the $500 /$1,000 poker tables on Full Tilt Poker and Dwan was already flying from the start of the game. In the largest and important card hand of the event, Gus Hansen revealed a set of queens with Tom Dwan revealing a pair of queens and the nut-flush card draw.

The flush succeeded on the turn and the $259,596 cash pot was handed to the poker wonder kid from New Jersey. The Danish pro added his own $200,000 pot to the session when his pair of kings and jacks edge out Dwan's pair of nine cards and jacks. But the rest of the game was very much a write-off for the Team Full Tilt poker pro. By the end of the game, Dwan had earned a total of $1 million and is once again down by a mere $2.2 million in 2009.
