Ziigmund Zags durrrr for $500k


Tom “durrrr” Dwan dropped almost $1 million last night in a disastrous session ending with a $551k heads-up loss to Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies.

Starting with $7k made from a $200/$400 Cap Pot-Limit Omaha game, Dwan moved on to lose $113,716 from 241 hands of $300/$600 Six-Max PLO.

Despite dropping the stakes to $200/$400, Dwan's second bought of Six-Max PLO barely worked out better than the first. In fact, he lost another $93k before moving to heads-up.

Sahamies would be Dwan's first opponent of the evening. There he made $25,589 after 112 hands of $300/$600 PLO, but still down nearly $200k, Dwan tried to chase his losses at $200/$400 No-Limit Hold'em heads-up against Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo.

Unfortunately, Dwan went on to double those losses instead, losing $190,668 to Bonomo over a 1,275-hand match.

Sahamies, who was up over $400k at this point, returned to play Dwan heads-up at the nosebleed $500/$1,000 PLO tables, crushing the Full Tilt pro over another 1,572-hand match.

Partly thanks to winning the largest pot from the session, at $176k, Sahamies managed to fleece Dwan for over $551,000, ending his session up just $15k shy of $1 million.

Dwan, who had been on a hot-streak over the last few weeks, booked a $917,379 loss, bringing his total profit for the year down to around $2.7 million. Despite the loss, Dwan remains in first place as the year's top winner so far.
