Sahamies Bombs: Top 10 Weekly Online Winners/Losers
Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies recorded one of his worst records in months while Phisherman36 exploded in the high stakes games this week.
It was a busy week for high stakes as pros like Sahamies, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom and Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy took a massive beating.
On the plus side, Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond, Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky and Fake Love888 (allegedly Patrik Antonius) were able to pick up the slack and book big wins.
Here’s a complete breakdown of the top 10 biggest winners and losers over the last week:
Top 10 Online Winners This Week
Just who is Phisherman36? It’s still not clear but the account, which activated in January, is now up over $600k in 2012.
The last week was the best one yet for Phisherman36 as he picked up an astounding $372,000 in 10,410 hands.
He had some respectable company near the top as noted pros Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky (+$275k) and Chris “Genius28” Lee (+$135k) slot into second and third place in overall profit this week.
Lee isn’t as well-known as some of his fellow high stakes players but he’s been money in the bank this year with $288k in profit. Lee picked up his first WSOP bracelet last summer so he’s going to get a shot at another in less than a month.
Fake Love888, the rumored account of Patrik Antonius, posted a rare winning session on PokerStars this week picking up $88k. Since the account activated it's down more than a million but Fake Love888 keeps plugging along.
Meanwhile Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond added yet another $88k victory and is now up over $1.1 million in online poker this year.
Here’s a complete look at the top 10 online winners this week according to HSDB:
1. Phisherman36: +$372,000
2. Sauce123: +$275,000

Top 10 Online Losers This Week
It’s been one of those years for Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies.
The Finnish pro has been under fire all year long and simply unable to dig himself out of the massive hole he dug earlier in 2012.
Despite some good work over the last few weeks to get even, Sahamies took a massive step backwards with $346k in losses over the last seven days.
After the week’s losses Sahamies is once again down over $700k this year and will need a major comeback if he wants to finish with a profit this year. Fortunately he's done it before.
Right behind Sahamies this week was Viktor “Isildur1” Blom who dumped $190k into the high stakes games on PokerStars.
Technically Blom is down even more than Sahamies, a total of $823k, but he’s got that $500k win against Haxton and the $1.3 million haul at the PCA Super High Roller to fall back on.
Finally Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy continued his extended slide over the last two months by losing $108k.
The U.K. pro peaked at over $500k in profit in the high stakes games on PokerStars but has seen that number reduced to a mere $69k.
Here are the top 10 online losers according to HSDB:
1. Ilari FIN: -$346,000
2. Isildur1: -$190,000
3. Toweliestar: -$169,000
4. LhhmMaoly: -$141,000
