    In an action-packed night at Full Tilt Poker, records were broken
    across the high-stakes tables as the largest pot in high-stakes poker was
    won four times and internet sensation Tom ‘durrr’ Dwan fought his way
    to sitting with

    $1,400,000 at the $500/$1,000NL table Railhaven.

    Previously the largest pot was just over $600,000 and was won by Cirque de Soleil
    founder Guy LaLiberte holding only a pair of deuces.

    Tom Dwan was the first to beat that record, won taking $617,968 with top
    two pair against a $275,000 bluff after a long session playing
    heads-up $500/$1,000NL with Lars Luzack.

    A little while later, durrr lost the largest pot in the history of online
    poker to John Juanda after getting it all-in pre-flop with AA and KK
    respectively. Juanda’s three-outer came brutally on the river and the
    World Series of Poker Europe champion won a $678k pot.

    Soon after, Phil Ivey flopped a set of tens after some heavy pre-flop
    action and check-raised all in. Juanda called off with K8ss for the second-nut
    flush draw and didn’t hit, meaning Ivey won a $690k pot.

    Urindanger took Ivey’s mantle and the largest ever online pot.

    Urindanger raised from middle position to $3,000 and Guy LaLiberte called. Durrr
    quickly squeezed to $16,300 and it folded back to Urindanger,
    who 4-bet to $45,000. Durrr called, leaving stacks of around $300,000 behind.

    The flop came 594 with two hearts and Urindanger bet out. Durrr raised
    and Urindanger shoved, receiving an insta-call. Once again, durrr was in a
    AA v KK situation, but this time he was the unfortunate underdog. The turn
    and river blanked out and shipped a $723,938 pot – the largest ​

    Buy, That Is Some Serious Money Being Thrown Around The Tables At Full Tilt Poker. You Truely Have To Be A Real Gambler To Play Those Kinda
    Stakes, And I Guess Having A Little Bit Of Cash To Be Able To Play Those Stakes Helps Too. lol Just Wondering, Whats The Highest Stakes Any Of Our Players Play For For From Bonus Paradise? I Once Sat Down At A $5/$10 Cash Game Table, And Walked Away With About 1/2 My Starting Stack That I Sat Down With. Never Played That Kinda Stakes Again, But Do Occasionally Play $1/$2 Tables.

    How About Some Of You Guys? Whats The Highest Stakes You Ever Played For And What Kinda Stakes Do You Normally Play?​

    I live dangerously. I play the 5/10 tables online too--5 and 10 cents! I haven't dared venture higher than that yet.

    I played 10 - 20 dollar tables before and lost a lot of money. Only rich people belong at
    those tables. They can afford to call 9 10 suited. I can't.

    So True Guys, I've Seen People Call Big Money With 54 offsuit playing $30/$60 table games. lol And Yes I Was Completely Nervous Playing The $5/$10 Table Think I Just Folded Half My Stack Away Roflmao

    I Usually Play $.25/$.50 Max And Usually Thats A Limit Game. I Will Play No Limit $.10/$.25 but usually take small stacks in and keep my risk minimmal to a severe badbeat, but enough to make it worth playing if i do get the nuts in a big hand and get paid off for putting entire stack in the pot.

    Maybe i could set us up a small, private, and friendly weekly cashgame For our members to play. Are you guys interested?​

    Was that at a cash game dear, or was that the size of tournament buyins? The one time i played the $5/$10 table, i took about $100 on the table
    and walked away with about $40 after about 15 minutes in that cash game, rof​
