Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and Tom "durrrr" Dwan have now played the second biggest pot ever in online poker history! Both of them have had some really bad months with hundreds of thousands dollars lost almost every week, but still they didn't let the negative start of 2009 affect their game on the high stakes they are famous to play on.

Not long ago Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and Tom "durrrr" played Omaha Hi $500/$1000 at Full Tilt poker. Always when these two play against each other, one can expect lots of action and enormous pots. This time it was a bit special as they were about to play the second biggest pot in online poker history. Not less than $723,938 US dollars was won by the Finnish poker pro "Ziigmund" after this hand versus Tom "Durrr" Dwan.


Durrr raises to $3000, Ziigmund re-raises to $9000. Durrr re-raises again to $27,000, Ziigmund calls $18,000.

Wow this is a serious amount of cash... Dam what could i do with that cash?
Hmmmmmmmm........... .... ..... i think id learn how to play Omaha and throw it all away od second pair with some much stronger draws on the board....LOL Confused
At what level of bankroll do you think loosing that sort of cash doesnt matter??

durrr was very confident to bet that way. he had more outs on the turn but still was behind zigmund. durrr was flush draw, was also expecting a straight, and one of the few that couldn't come out...appeared. Its being difficult for durrr to begin to generate profits this year ...

Durr is going to be the next Stu Ungar

Ungar was an unmatched tourney player, but not that good in cash games. Durrrr is more the opposite.

Bad play from Durr in my eyes. Tilt? Zigmund played it all right. He could use it I guess, I railed him yesterday against Gus Hansen and he lost 72K in a few hands.
 Mefjoew29/05/2009 12:59:27 GMT
Very aggressive daring play from Durr that didn't turn out well because Ziigmund hit the nutstraight on the turn and improved on the river. Durrs play would have worked if his opponent has anything less than toppair topkicker. Against one pair he would have 17 outs.
 Endurx29/05/2009 14:04:03 GMT
bad play by Durrr, I cant undorstand why he played this hand this way there was so many mistakes that even my little brother would fold it
 GeneYuss30/05/2009 04:17:16 GMT
Strong play by Durrrr..If Ziigmund folded then no one would know about the nice semi bluff.. I would have tried to get it all in on the flop if I were Durrrr, the turn didn't help him at all.

 M4tt03/06/2009 09:03:25 GMT
i think that durrrr overplay a bit his hand.. but maybe he got his reasons and he knows better zigmund... sick for him
 Guiron03/06/2009 09:06:09 GMT
I think he was on tilt, but zigmund did the good thing.
 MickLR24/06/2009 02:07:13 GMT

You have to be sick in the head to play Omaha anyways. Especially for that much money.
