Sahamies Routed for $500k on PokerStars
Ilari “Ilari FIN” Sahamies was lit up for $493k in one of the biggest sessions of the year last night.
The Finnish pro simply couldn’t get anything going in the 1,574 hands he played on PokerStars.
Sahamies stuck primarily to $100/$200 6-Max Pot-Limit Omaha and got into serious trouble on a table that included 1-ronnyr3, Bernard-bb, mickan1984, refaelamit and St1ckman.
In just 225 hands, Sahamies lost a total of $240k on that table alone.
Sahamies continued to lose in the $100/$200 6-Max games before finally switching to heads-up $50/$100 PLO against Isildur1 and Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy.
The swingy Finn didn’t find the redemption he was looking for and ended up losing another $50k before finally calling it a night.
Sahamies, who was the biggest winner in 2011, with $2 million in profit, has gotten off to a rocky start in 2011 and after being essentially stuck at $0 profit for some time is now over $500k in the hole.
Although Sahamies was by far the biggest loser last night, there were a few notable players who took tough beats.
Fellow Finn Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen was the second biggest loser taking $94k in damage while frequent Isildur1 rival Sander “Berndsen12” Berndsen lost $57k.
The aforementioned Viktor “Isildur1” Blom lost $30k in a 952-hand session.
Meanwhile online player bernard-bb was the big dog last night as he scooped $162k, a good portion of which came directly from Sahamies.
The other notable winners included Benny “toweliestar” Spindler (+$143k), Gavin “gavz101” Cochrane (+$105k) and Rafi “refaelamit” Amit (+$82k).
