Swede Erik “DIN_FRU” Sagström sunk over $100k into the high-stakes H.O.R.S.E. games on Full Tilt Poker last night.

Sagström, who was one of the first hugely successful online cash players, has had a volatile history in high-stakes poker to say the least.

He spun his roll all the way up to nearly $2 million in the summer of 2009 before losing it all in the span of a few months and going $591k in the red.

Sagström finally resurfaced this summer and in three months was once again a massive winner with $1.2 million in profit.

Despite his strong play over the last few weeks, that didn’t stop him from donating $112k to Brian “sbrugby” Townsend in 675 hands of $500/$1,000 H.O.R.S.E. last night.

If it’s any consolation for Sagström there’s a good chance Townsend needed it more than he did as the former CardRunners instructor is down over $4 million in the high stakes games this year.

Unknown online player IReadYrSoul was the biggest winner last night, adding $139k to his bankroll. The majority of IReadYrSoul’s profit came against Ashton “ASHMAN103” Griffin, who lost $108k on the evening.

Some of the other winners included davin77 (+$40k), David Benefield (+$39k) and Van Marcus (+$29k).

Meanwhile LokoIsBack (-$60k), trex313 (-$47k) and chipchip (-$21k) were among the loss leaders.
