It's not enough for Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and Tom "durrrr" Dwan to play extremely high stakes like $500/$1000 Pot Limit Omaha. Last weekend they raised the stakes to $3000/$9000 and one got to see some huge pots, many of them around 300,000 US dollars!
Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and Tom "durrrr" are well known from playing on the highest possible stakes at Full Tilt poker. But the extreme stakes $500/$1000 that they usually play is not enough for them anymore as they now raised to $3000/$9000. With other words it costs $9000 just to see the flop (assuming that there is no action before the flop). Some of the pots laded on around $300,000 and it was a very tight game where hundreds of thousands of dollars swap owner in almost every single hand. But even though the swings were extremely high, the final result wasn't what many people might have expected it to be. Tom Dwan won $160,000 from his Finnish opponent, quite a lot of money, but not considering that they played $3000/$9000 blinds in one of the most action filled games - pot limit Omaha.
Even though Tom Dwan won $160,000 from "Ziigmund", he's still $2 million down this year. And if he loses his own challenge, he will be owe Patrik Antonius anither $1,5 million dollars! But there is a long way to go in the "durrrr challenge" and anything can still happen.
