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

Huge pots have been the new of the game at Full Tilt Poker lately. Brian Hastings won this huge pot worth $354.060 while Mike “the Mouth” Matusow was firing up the chat:

But his session ended still as a loser, on another table he managed to lose around $500.000! Talk about running bad at that one!. Another loser who won a huge pot was screenname SteveSung, here is a pot worth of $246.258:

Looks like Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies has managed to end his downswing booking nice sessions lately – he is currently up around $300.000 this month!

To make railbirds life even more interesting Full Tilt Poker has opened the new $200/400 deep stacks tables at both Omaha and Texas Hold’em. The maximum buy-in for these tables are $80.000. So we are hoping to some more action and huge pots building up!

One of the first sessions played in the deepstack-tables were between David Benyamine and Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies. Here are a few hands from the session when Benyamine won $110.000 quickly:

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.

Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies has been famous for making huge coinflips after some heated sessions. This time there were different players flipping for big amounts.

Sami “LrsLzk” Kelopuro was waiting opponents at Primas NL $100/200 tables when Terken89 sat down. But Terken89 didn’t want to play – but wanted to do some coinflips for $10.000 each.

Terken89 had luck on his hand – winning also with 8-high:

After that Kelopuro had some promblems with his kicker – Terken89 winning 3-1:

We also had a HUGE coinflip at Full Tilt Poker involving Brian Hastings and DaEvils – a pot worth over $100.000 with the handhistory:

Sami “LarsLuzak” Kelopuro has been sitting and waiting opponents at the Ladbrokes High Stakes Tables. A couple of days ago he played a bit with Jonas “Nebuchad” Danielsson but otherwise the tables have been quiet. Kelopuro plays under the screenname Barbaggo at Ladbrokes.

Yesterday we saw him facing first SirWinalot9 and then J-Lopez. Kelopuro won $20.000 from both of them. And again waiting for new opponents… Lets hope that we will see some action at the $200/400 Deepstack table with max buy-in of $80.000!
