Durrrr declines $660k coin flip
Today there's been some wild heads up PLO $500/$1,000 action between the high stakes giants Tom 'durrrr' Dwan and Illari 'Ziigmund' Sahamies. In the end durrrr was too tired to keep playing and wanted to leave. After failing to get him to stay Ziigmund offered to flip for the money he had left at the table.
There was so much good action at the Full Tilt Poker high stakes tables that durrrr and Patrik Antonius never continued on their challenge. So we'll probably have to wait another day or two for the match to start again. But the railbirds weren't disappointed.
Ziigmund and durrrr played an epic PLO $500-$1,000 heads up match several pots of $300 k or more, the largest pot being over $500k. At this time the action had become really fast and furious. The hand was four bet pre flop and the rest of the money went in on the flop (6c-Qh-9s). Durrrr flopped top set (Tc-Qs-Qc-8s) and Ziigmund had a wrap straight draw (Th-8c-9d-Jc). A seven on the turn gave both players the same straight, but another seven on the river gave durrrr a full house and $506,878.
Durrrr was probably up about half a million dollars when he told Ziigmund that he was too tired to keep playing. Failing to convince him of staying Ziigmund offered a$660 k coin flip that durrrr (understandably?) turned down.
