Dwan and Sahamies Take Down South
The most consistent and profitable player in high stakes online this year, CardRunners pro Cole South ran into a wall yesterday, losing over half a million to Tom Dwan and Ilari Sahamies.
South's day started at $25/$50 Pot-Limit Omaha on Full Tilt where he made $15k before moving up to $300/$600 PLO against Di "Urindanger" Dang and Gus Hansen.
South only stuck around for 12 hands making $10k before leaving to sit heads-up with Dwan at $200/$400 PLO.
The heads-up match lasted over two and a half hours, spanning 466 hands across two tables. By the end, South had dropped just over $84k.
Meanwhile, on top of a couple hands of $25/$50, and a long but uneventful session of $200/$400 Cap-PLO, South also sat with both Dwan and Sahamies for 378 hands of $300/$600 PLO.
Over the duration of the three-handed session, South managed to lose $226,950, all but $23k going to Sahamies.
He made one more attempt to save the session with a $200/$400 PLO rematch against Dwan, this time playing 400 hands in just under an hour.
However, the Cardrunners pro dropped another $234k to Dwan, finishing his day down $511,149.
On top of holding-over on South all day, Dwan also made $50k at $300/$600 PLO stacking the unknown luckexpress10 in just four hands. Include a $14k loss at $200/$400 Cap-PLO and Dwan finished his day up $377,568.
Sahamies entire day consisted of the single 3-handed session. He earned over $203k in just two hours of work - $1,769 a minute.
