Tom “durrrr” Dwan takes $1,000,000 from Ziigmund

Saturday, 7 March 2009

Tom Dwan, allegedly in the midst of a $4m downswing, is coming out of it nicely. In between playing Patrik Antonius across four tables of heads-up Omaha as part of his million-dollar challenge, the young gun took $1,000,000 from Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies.

Ziigmund has been described by Barry Greenstein as “one of the best Pot-Limit Omaha players I’ve ever seen.” Strong praise indeed, but even for the best the cards just can’t fall right sometimes.

In one huge near-$600k pot, Ziigmund flopped the nut straight and durrrr had top set with AA62 on a AQJ board. The action got to the river, Js, and Ziigmund shoved, unfortunately durrrr had caught his out to make a full house and the winning hand.
