Sick action continues for durrrr and Ziigmund

The nosebleed $3k/$9k PLO action was heavy again this morning on Full Tilt Poker, as Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and Tom "durrrr" Dwan went at it for over $2 million in an hour-long session.

For those of you out of the loop, the standard $500/$1,000-blind PLO games have apparently not been high enough for the big high-stakes online players lately, so they've decided to start every hand with a raise and a reraise instead, making the blinds $3,000/$9,000 before they even play the hand.

Even though Sahamies had claimed he wasn't willing to play the ridiculously high $3k/$9k game, he sat heads-up with Dwan last night and played for just over an hour.

Although both players won their fair share of gigantic pots, the session saw Ziigmund make a $200k profit, thanks to winning three of the top-five largest pots.

Considering the blind amounts alone are what the average American makes in about four months at a full-time job, a small profit in this game isn't so bad.

With a combined total of $450,000, here are the two largest pots of the session:

Dwan ahead the whole way.

One missed wrap apiece.
