The irreversible wouldn't be doing the maximum amount of work because the outside pressure was only 1 atm compared to the inside pressure of 2 atm, so this doesn't represent the work against maximum pressure. On the other hand, the reversible pressure is at equilibrium, so it is expanding against the max pressure, therefore, doing more work.
