Million Dollar FIN: Top 10 Weekly Winners/Losers
This week in high-stakes poker belongs to one man: Ilari Sahamies.
Playing on his "Ilari FIN" account on PokerStars.com Sahamies won more than $1 million in the last seven days. He's up over $1.5 million over the last three weeks.
Much of that profit came from fellow high-stakes fixture Viktor "Isildur1" Blom.
In fact, the two played the biggest PLO pot so far this year, a $268k monster that ended up on Ilari FIN's side of the table.
Blom had much success earlier in the week in the $100/$200 Six-Max PLO games but he gave it all back playing heads-up against Sahamies and Phil Galfond.
On the red side of this week's report Theo Jorgensen tops the charts, continuing the big swings we've seen from him in recent weeks.
Check below for a complete list of the top 10 biggest winners and losers in online poker over the last seven days. For more information be sure to check our online poker stats section:

It was shades of Full Tilt Poker in 2009 as Ilari Sahamies was by far the biggest winner on PokerStars this week.
Sahamies was on an almost $1.5 million downswing heading into August but he's all but obliterated that deficit. Sahamies finished up more than $1 million on the week.
Galfond also had a fantastic week although he dropped down a bit towards Friday.
Viktor Blom was on this list up until 24 hours ago when he took an absolute shellacking at the hands of Ilari Sahamies.
Here’s all 10 biggest winners:

Top 10 Losers Online
Theo “Theo J” Jorgensen was absolutely battered in the $100/$200 Six-Max PLO games on PokerStars this week.
Although Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky and LuckyGump were also among the notable players to lose in those games this week, they didn’t come close to matching the Dane’s losses.
Jorgensen, who is known more as a live player, only played 2,025 hands throughout the week but still managed to lose $279k.
Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane continued his surprising downward trend this week. Cochrane had been the biggest winner on PokerStars for the last few months, up $1.5 million in 2011, but was finally passed this week by Skjervoy who now has $1.6 million in profit.
Up until Thursday Ronny “1-ronnyr3” Kaiser was on the winners list, but went on a more than quarter-million downturn since then.
What follows is a complete list of the top 10 biggest losers on PokerStars over the last seven days:
