Ziigmund and durrrr put on a Clinic


From midday yesterday to early this morning, Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies and Tom “durrrr” Dwan took a strangle hold on Full Tilt’s high-stakes tables, combining to win over $575k.

Dwan, who has finally started to play in the black after struggling for most of January, is beginning to look like his old self, playing straight from midday Tuesday until nearly 8 a.m. this morning.

Over this marathon session Dwan booked 4,881 hands playing a mix of Pot-Limit Omaha, No-Limit Hold'em and 7-Game. After sitting at $300/$600 PLO and losing $180k in 95 hands, Dwan dropped down to the lower limits playing as low as $25/$50.

When he finally logged off, Dwan had booked a $241k win.

Sahamies had an easier start to his day making over $146k from 452 hands of heads-up $200/$400 PLO against Cole South. Once South admitted defeat, Sahamies moved on to $100/$200 Cap-PLO where he made another $114k.

Add on $98k from 7-Game and a small $25k loss from early this morning and Sahamies finished up over $334k.

Cole South, who had lost $50k prior to playing Sahamies heads-up, was unable to recover his losses ending the day down around $200k.

Patrik Antonius only played 213 hands of PLO yesterday, taking most of the day off after booking a quick $243k win.

Finally, Brian Townsend has yet to recover from the downswing coinciding with his Full Tilt Pro status suspension, losing another $158k yesterday, bringing his total losses on the year to over $1.6 million.

Trips on the turn take it.



Just the nuts.



Top set + 15 outs if Antonius flopped it = an easy call for South.
