Ziigmund beats durrrr for $900,000 at PLO

Friday, 26 March 2010

Pot-Limit Omaha is a crazy game, even more so when you take two of the best players in the world and seat them at a table where the small blind is larger than most players’ bankrolls.

Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies and Tom “durrrr” Dwan headlined the nosebleed tables at Full Tilt Poker a couple of nights ago when the two played an epic 2,400-hand match of $500/$1,000 PLO across several tables.

In total the two played over 2,000 hands at the highest stakes tables, with their largest pot being ran twice – however, both halves went to Dwan. Holding 9s-8d-6d-6s, durrrr got all his money in with a full house on a 3h-3c-6c-Ts board. Ziigmund had KT64 for a defunct gutshot and top two pair, needing a ten to take either half of the $364,000 pot. However, the rivers were the 5h and 2s respectively, shipping both $182,000 pots to Dwan.
