War appears to have broken out on the virtual tables at Full Tilt Poker over the past 24 hours with giant pots won and lost. Just about the only big online high stakes players absent from the action fest were apparently Phil Ivey and the mysterious Mantonas.
The action was principally on the $300/$600 Pot Limit Omaha tables, where there were reports that the top 10 pots alone added up to over $4 million.
Getting in on the action were Internet aces like Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and David Benyamine, who both took down pots worth over a half million dollars apiece. As the night wore on, a staggering twenty two pots, each worth over $200 000 were won or lost over the tables, and 95 of the top 100 pots were over $100 000 in value, with many more just short of that figure.
MarketPulse notes particularly a nine handed confrontation on one PLO table where every seat was filled, delivering some outstanding full ring poker action.
Initial reports indicate that the big loser on the action was probably Phil Galfond, who was understood to have been down a million on the night, including one mammoth $555 000 pot which he lost to Ilari Sahamies.
Predictably perhaps, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Sahamies were in the thick of it, and went on to compete in some $500/$1 000 PLO heads-up action until the early hours of the morning. Sahamies appeared to have enoyed the better of the exchange, primarily due to a win on a pot worth $426 000.
