Benyamine vs. Ivey

Phil Ivey and David Benyamine faced each other again on a $2000/$4000 HORSE -game. Last sunday David Benyamine beat Ivey for a nice amount. Next time they played everything turned around. Ivey was controlling especially the hi/lo -games and he manage to win nearly $280k. Later they played another session and then it was Benyamines time to win. In the short session he won about $75k.

Benyamine dominates pot-limit Omaha

That didn’t slow Benayamine down – he went on winning a bit over $700.000 within five hours of pot-limit Omaha! Biggest loser was Tom “durrrr” Dwan and nobody left as a winner against Benyamine.

Currently Benyamine is up an amazing amout of $1.8 million at pot-limit Omaha this month! Though he lost pretty much to Matt “Hoss_TBF” Hawrilenko in Limit Holdem, HORSE has bought those losses back. Currently you can say that Benyamine is over 2 million dollars up so far in May.

Cole South vs. Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies

Another sick session to watch was these two battling simultaneously in 2* 200/400 No-limit Texas tables plus 2* 200/400 pot-limit Omaha tables heads-up. The tables were all deep-stack tables (buy-in $80.000) and at one point Sahamies had over $700.000 in front of him.

Game was pretty agressive and rail manage to saw eight over $150k pots. “Ziigmund” started out pretty good while South was reloading pretty often. Then South managed to get his games going and lost only about $20.000 in the end according to his own words.

Few big hands from the session:

1. All in on the flop:

2. South goes all in on the turn for $67k:

3. Ziigmund wins a pot worth of $202k: http://www.pokerhand.org/?2647123


Good times, nice action, big win, big losses – that’s what Full Tilt Pokers big games have been lately. Saturday was again packed with action for example in the $200/$400 Omaha tables as well as no limit Hold’emin $500/$1000 CAP-tables.

Phil Ivey ended up winning the most – he made a profit of $240.000. The screenname Cogaz was the one losing – and a huge amount of $400.000. Another big winner was Tom “durrrr” Dwan – winning $175.000.

David Benymine lost about $70.000 at Omaha tables but ended up as a bitter loser in the Limit Hold’em games. He battled Matt “Hoss_TBF” Hawrilenko at the $1.000/2.000 tables.

Hawrilenko is considered to be one of the best limit Holdem players around, this night he was running really well taking $200.000 from Benyamine. This caused the following outburst from Benyamine:

David Benyamine: i will neveer play u again u are too
good i give my promess
Hoss_TBF: lol
Hoss_TBF: good at hitting every draw
David Benyamine: well done
Hoss_TBF: ran sick tonight, gg

Lets see if David keeps his promise!

David Benyamine has got his confidence back and results have been very good lately.

This morning Benyamine won a massive $398k pot against Tom “durrrr” Dwan, in FTP PLO table.
Both of those players had deep stacks and then came this hand:

Before flop, players got over $33k in the middle.
Flop: Td2c4s

“CHUFTY”, who was shortstack was all-in and “ICallSoWhat” quickly moved all-in after flop. “durrrr” called and Benyamine raised the pot. “durrrr” moved then all-in and Benyamine of course called that. Pot was nearly $400k to Benyamine and “durrrr”.

Benyamine had the bottom two pair and an overpair, “durrrr” was holding a massive wrap.

Benyamine: 2h Qh Qd 4c
durrrr: 5s Ad 3s 6d

Turn was 8d and river Qc, so “durrrr” didnt catch his draw. CHUFTY won main pot, but becouse he had only less then a $6k stack before flop he only won $23k. Benyamine won both sidepots and took home a nice $191k profit in that hand.

Benyamine won over $300k in tuesday.

The games have been running really hot at Full Tilt Poker this month. Action has been going on constantly with big winner and big losers already emerging.

One hot session was played when a new name “This_is_4_DV” arrived to challenge straight away Hac “trex313” Dang at the $200/400 pot-limit Omaha table. The 7 hour marathon session ended into This_is_4_DV:s favor – he won $254.000 from Dang.

Hac Dang has been running pretty badly this month. Previous months he has seemed to be unstoppable – now he continued his bad run by losing around $100.000 to Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies playing $300/600 no-limit Texas Hold’em. Hac Dang has already lost $560.000 this month.

The player in the top of winning list is “CHUFTY” with $530.000. He has managed to build few very nice stacks at the Omaha tables. Yesterday he won a very nice $185.000 pot when he, durrrr, trex313 and Lady Marmelade all went all-in on the flop. All the other players had some sort of straight draws but CHUFTY was the only one to have the flush draw which he hit.

Yesterday was a good day also for David Benyamine – winning $173.000 and putting his total winnings for this month already up to $460.000.

The secong biggest loser this month has been EURO32PLYR with $442.000 losses.

The heated action took place at tables Ivey Thunderdome and Ivey Deathmatch. Phil Ivey played pot-limit Omaha against Tom “durrr” Dwan and both pot-limit Omaha and no-limit Texas against Hac “trex313” Dang.

We saw some huge pots and Ivey was on fire – ending up winning $544.000! The biggest loser was Tom Dwan – making huge losses worth $441.000, most of that money went to Phil Ivey.

Many high stakes pros are very happy to see the ultra-rich Guy Laliberte back at Full Tilt Poker. Laliberte is known for example owning Cirque du Soleil and plays under then screenname “noataima”.

Yesterday he was back on the tables and lost $226.000 – another big loser was Ilari Sahamies “Ziigmund” (-$213.000) who has been having a crazy rollercoaster lately. Ziigmunds chat has been running also quite hot lately – here he is trashing Di Dang:

Ziigmund: hope u doie f godngodong
Ziigmund: fu moron chin
Urindanger: it’s chink.
Urindanger: learn to spell
Urindanger: chin. wtf
Ziigmund: what chink means?
Ziigmund: i didnt mean that word
Ziigmund: r u asian?

This hand might have something to do with it (Ziggys aces are cracked badly):

Tom Dwan “durrrr” has been doing really strong this month. Already booking winnings worth over $750.000 from April. Another big winner is Di Dang “Urindanger” – winning a bit over $370.000, but his brother Hac Dang “trex313” has lost $240.000.


If you have been railing the games at Full Tilt Poker lately you surely have seen durrrr (Tom Dwan) sitting at almost every table possible. He is known for his skills to multitable pretty well…


Yesterday he was spotted playing simultaniously:

FOUR Omaha tables with $200/400 blinds

+TWO heads-up Omaha tables against Ziigmund (Ilari Sahamies) with $200/400 blinds

+THREE  heads-up No-limit Texas tables – 2 against Phil Ivey and 1 against Ziigmund

Thats pretty huge! And he has been running pretty nicely, being one of the biggest winners in Texas Hold’em this month and even making nice comeback from his earlier Omaha losses.

Here is a pretty funny hand from the sessions:
