ziigmund does battle with Cole South

Ilari Sahamies

With the durrrr Challenge on hold and games at $500/$1,000 sporadic at best, online railbirds have been scrambling to find some noteworthy high-stakes action lately.

Enter online giants Ilari "ziigmund" Sahamies and Cole South, who stepped in today and fired up a pre-noon, multi-table $100/$200 PLO session at biggest pots online so far today, with several near-$100k pots changing hands.

Typically, a professional poker player will only sit at a table if they feel they have an edge on the game, which makes this matchup very interesting.

It's hard to argue South has an edge against ziigmund, but the amount of money and action on a $100/$200 table is five times lower than that of ziigmund's regular game, so it most likely affects his game, particularly his willingness to gamble.

Even though South looks to have finished the session down around $50k, he did manage to win his share of large pots, including the largest pot of their session, worth just under $89k.

Check out the four biggest pots between the two below:
