Ziigmund and durrrr in Huge PLO Session

Sunday, 17 May 2009

You would think that if you played $200,000 buy-in cash games against the best players in the world and regularly experienced seven-figure swings in both directions then gambling would have somewhat lost its lustre.

Well, apparently not.

Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies and Tom “durrrr” Dwan did the usual with a session of $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha but then seemingly got bored of that. The pair agreed to 3-bet every pot pre-flop, therefore the game was effectively $3,000/$9,000 PLO.

Despite durrrr “only” winning $160,000 in the session the pots got unsurprisingly massive. This included a $578,000 pot that is one of the biggest of 2009 so far.

The pot was $18k on the flop – durrrr flopped the nut straight and Ziigmund a pair and the nut flush draw. The money flew in and Ziigmund caught a third club to take the huge pot.
