Patrik Antonius takes on Phil Galfond, Ziigmund; wins $300k

Friday, 20 August 2010

Yesterday we reported that the two Finns and the Yank (Antonius, Sahamies and Galfond) competed at the $200/$400 PLO tables, thankfully uncapped. Yesterday Galfond won over $260,000 against the two Finns but today Antonius dominated.

The trio moved up to $300/$600 and Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies dropped over $100,000 alongside Phil Galfond, allowing Patrik Antonius to win over $235,000. He then made a $100,000 score in the 7-game which gave him a total day’s profit of over $330,000.

In total, Ziigmund lost $130,000 and Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond dropped the better part of $200,000 but neither could match Gus Hansen for money lost. Once again, the Great Dane dropped a tidy wedge; losing $230,000 in 1,380 hands.

The largest pot was a typical PLO cooler when Ziigmund and his fellow Finn Antonius were playing heads-up. In a 3-bet pot, Ziigmund bet all three streets of a Td-4s-3s-7d-Kd board holding As-Ks-Qd-5d for a gutshot-and-flush-draw-turned-second-nut-flush. Sadly for him, Antonius flipped up Ad-2d-4d-Kc for the nut flush and took down the $143,600 pot.
