Ilari Sahamies kept his foot firmly on the pedal last night by winning another $380,000 in the online high stakes games.

The previous night Sahamies won $143k, which means the Finnish pro is up over half a million dollars in the last 48 hours.

Sahamies rattled off 1,495 hands on PokerStars last night. He played mixture of $50/$100 and $100/$200 Pot-Limit Omaha against Fake Love888, Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane, Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy and Kipu.

The main event, however, was a 752 heads-up $100/$200 PLO match against Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky.

Sulsky had been running hot before the session but Sahamies dismantled the young American pro for $276k. Sahamies even threw in a few signature barbs in the chatbox before he finished the session.

“Ilari FIN: zzzzzz”
“Ilari FIN: u r so nit”
“Ilari FIN: im done.”           

Sahamies was up over $200k when he quit the session against Sauce123. Sulsky seemed to imply Sahamies was doing a hit and run but that didn't stop the Finn from leaving.

Sulsky managed to recoup some of his losses in the 6-Max games but still finished as the biggest loser on the night, down a total of $181k.

Sahamies was the clear winner on the evening as he won nearly four times the amount of his closest competitor – Kipu with $95k profit.

Some of the other notable winners included r?mps? (+$53k), ChipUniter (+$51k) and N Channing (+$41k).

Sulsky was the biggest loser but Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy also felt the pain of a heads-up session against Sahamies. Grundy played 172 hands against the Finn and lost $40k. He went on to finish down $84k on the night.

The other big losers included Fake Love888 (-$82k), L0ve2playU (-$71k) and gavz101 (-$63k).
