South and Sahamies Return to Battle
After losing $775k to Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies last Saturday, Cole South was out for blood last night.
South warmed up with $5/$10 and $25/$50 Pot-Limit Omaha eventually finding Sahamies at the $300/$600 PLO tables.
After one hour and 275 hands South walked away from the match up $511,166. Surprisingly he made this profit despite losing four of the five largest pots. The top two biggest pots were collectively worth over $750k.
After taking on Full Tilt pro Tom "durrrr" Dwan at $200/$400 PLO, but only making $36k over the 646 hand session, South returned to $300/$600 to challenge Sahamies once more.
This second session lasted over three hours and Sahamies managed to grind back $121k of his loss. The Finnish poker pro ended the day down $409k, losing $389k of that total to South.
Meanwhile South continued his incredible run in 2010, finishing the day up $436,487. South has earned over $3.5 million playing online poker this year.
Dwan started his day by warming up at $50/$100 PLO before sitting for his heads-up session with South. After losing the $36k to South, Dwan went on to lose another $252k to Brian Townsend playing $100/$200 PLO heads-up.
After grinding back $50k at a PLO Cap game, Dwan sat for round two against Townsend, this time taking the CardRunners pro for $496,651. Dwan finished his day up over $263k. With the win, Dwan has nearly pulled himself even for the year, down just $50,000.
