Welcome Back Luzak: Kelopuro returns

LarsLuzak Returns
Kelopuro: Reloaded and ready for action.

For most of 2008, relatively little had been seen from infamous high-stakes online player Sami "LarsLuzak" Kelopuro.

After a downturn last year busted his FTP account and a lack of action in high-limit ring games discouraged him from reloading, there was little sign the legendary Kelopuro had any intention of getting back in the online mix.

No one, however, seems to be able to resist the action at FTP's $500/$1,000 RailHeaven table.

Yesterday saw Kelopuro's long-awaited return to the FTP tables as he logged on for a little bit of $200/$400 No-Limit Hold'em.

Unfortunately he stepped back to the tables on the losing end of the second biggest pot online this week, a $428k crushing at the hands of David Benyamine.
