Last week we reported that Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies had beaten CardRunners’ Brian Townsend out of almost half a million dollars playing a few hundred hands of $200/$400 PLO.
Well, Townsend got exemplary revenge. In just 49 hands, Townsend won over $400,000 - $417,000 to be precise – for a phenomenal winrate of $8,400 per hand. That has to be some sort of record for the most money won in the fewest hands.Their largest pot was obviously not going to break any records – in 49 hands, Ziigmund was dropping so many buy-ins that play didn’t have time to get deep-stacked. However, $170,000 isn’t to be sniffed at. In a 5-bet pot the money naturally went in on a 995r board. Ziigmund held AJ87 for a gutshot... and not much else. Townsend had him crushed with KKAT for an overpair. It held, shipping Townsend the largest pot.Watch the action live at Full Tilt Poker – a Ziigmund v Townsend rematch is on the cards for sure.
