Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies finally snapped a seemingly endless downswing last night with a $113k victory.

Sahamies played 1,074 hands of high-stakes PLO on Full Tilt and won several massive pots against Niki Jedlicka, Dan “jungleman12” Cates and Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond.

The past two months have been rough for Sahamies, as he'd lost nearly $2 million since the start of October.

The last two weeks had been particularly difficult with Sahamies having difficulty recording even a single win.

Despite winning over $100k last night Sahamies is still down $764k and has a great deal of work ahead of him if he wants to pull even before the end of the year.

Arbianight was technically the biggest winner last night taking down a grand total of $133k in just 511 hands.

Meanwhile Dan “jungleman12” Cates finally recorded a losing session last night. Cates lost $170k but is still the year’s biggest winner with $4.2 million in profit.

Ziigmund actually asked Cates in the chat when the durrrr Challenge II would get rolling again but Cates admitted he didn’t know.

Phil Galfond was another big loser last night, dropping a total $69k. He can likely afford it as he’s sitting on $648k profit this year.

Here’s a look at several note worthy hands from last night. For more information check our online poker stats section.

Huge hand for Ziggy.
