Ziigmund to face durrrr in the 500K live PLO heads up challenge

Monday, 9 November 2009

The mad world of Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies has taken an exciting spin in light of news he is to face Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan in the $500K live durrrr challenge next week in London.

According to his blog on Coinflip.com, Ilari says that he was offered a place on High Stakes Poker but then was too late on getting back to them and so they gave his seat away. Unfazed, in typical Ziggy style, he continues;
‘Im going to London next monday and I will play against Durrrrr that 500k challenge there....I think it might be even more interesting than that fcking highstakespoker.’

The news was officially confirmed today as Ilari and Dwan both agreed that they would play a minimum of 500 hands of PLO (chosen by the challenger: Ziigmund) or until the minimum buy-in of $500,000 is lost.

The two players are not unfamiliar with million dollar swings and have both won/lost a considerable amount off each other on the high stakes tables at Full Tilt poker, especially in the 3k/9k PLO games during the summer. However, this will be the first time the two have sat down face to face for a high stakes heads-up in the flesh and it is sure to create a buzz amongst the poker community.

The match-up will take place on the 17th or 18th November in London.
