!P0krparty? Shut Down for $398k

Ilari Sahamies
Ilari Sahamies was a huge winner last night.

Aggressive unidentified maniac !P0krparty? was absolutely rocked in the high stakes online games last night and lost nearly $400k.

!P0krparty?, who currently resides in Canada, played a total of 10,724 hands in the last 48 hours and was taken to the cleaners by a collection of players.

Sticking primarily to the $25/$50 and $50/$100 6-Max PLO games !P0krparty? recorded the majority of his losses to Rui Cau but he also played against GARFIELD25, Ben86, Ilari Sahamies and takechip.

In total !P0krparty? lost $398k, which may keep him out of the high stakes online games for the time being.

Since bursting onto the high stakes online poker scene in mid-July it’s been quite a ride for the Canadian resident. !P0krparty? would lose several hundred thousand in a night but then he would make it all back in a few hours.

He may have finally hit a hole that he can’t get out of so easily, however. !P0krparty? is now down $465k on the year and his bankroll may simply be exhausted.

!P0krparty? may want to forget last night ever happened but it was the opposite for Peter “GARFIELD25” Chan.

Chan played one of the biggest sessions in his history on PokerStars and picked up $381k over 2,954 hands. The win represents a massive portion of his winnings on the site this year as he’s now up a total of $440k on the site.

Right behind Chan was Ilari “Ilari_FIN” Sahamies who’s been on one of the biggest heaters in online poker over the last few months.

Sahamies won $181k last night and when combined with his winnings from the weekend is up nearly $500k over the last three days.

You get the feeling Sahamies simply won’t rest until he’s taken over top spot as the biggest winner on PokerStars this year. Rafi Amit, the current leader, must be getting nervous as Sahamies’ $1.7 million in profit is getting dangerously close to his $1.88 million.

Perhaps the most compelling aspect of Sahamies inspirational run is that he was one of the year’s biggest losers at the mid-way point of 2011, stuck nearly $1 million.

Some of the other big winners last night included Ben86 (+96k), doncarignano (+$90k) and Brian “aba20” Townsend (+$78k).

Meanwhile Skjervoy (-$94k), toweliestar (-$82k), Terken89 (-$80k) and 1II|1II|1iI| (-$73k) all factored into the top five losers list.
