Ziigmund Strikes South for $700k
Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies and Cole South had the railbirds buzzing on Full Tilt Poker earlier today.
South and Sahamies faced off in a series of heads-up $500/$1,000 PLO matches over two tables. Unlike many of the PLO games that have been going on recently, they decided to play the non-Cap version of the game.
After a couple hours Ziigmund started to pull away from South and near the end of the session it turned into an all-out bloodbath.
Ziigmund raked numerous pots that were worth over $150,000 and at one point had $1.2 million spread across both tables.
After 791 hands South had apparently reached his breaking point and offered the obligatory “gg” before leaving. Ziigmund finished up $709k, which is his biggest score in months, while South ended up down $638k.
The always swingy Ziigmund improved from being almost even in 2010 to nearly $1 million earned while South, who had a terrific start to 2010 with nearly $2 million won, falls down to about $900k profit for the year.
Several big name players were busy last night as skervoy won $247,157, Dan “jungleman12” Cates took $161k and Phil Ivey added $137k to his online bankroll.
Meanwhile durrrr was a big loser, dropping $247k and Di “Urindanger” Dang also didn’t fare well losing $218k.
Here are a few of the biggest hands from the session earlier today. Be sure to check out our online poker stats section for more information.
