Ziigmund Breaks $1.5 Million Mark
Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies added to his great start in 2010 by winning $296k on Full Tilt yesterday.
Sahamies is now up over $1.6 million for the year with the majority of the profit coming from the last eight days.
Despite his reputation as a wild gambler, Sahamies has not logged a losing day on the online tables since Jan. 20.
His session yesterday began at $100/$200 Pot-Limit Omaha where he lost $14k against regular opponents Cole South, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Gus Hansen.
After an hour and 108 hands, Sahamies made the move to $300/$600 PLO heads-up against South. In just 28 minutes (55 hands) Sahamies took over $252k.
After an eight hour break, Sahamies returned to $300/$600 PLO to play Patrik Antonius heads-up, but once again only stayed for about 20 minutes and 59 hands.
In the short match Sahamies took $53k from Antonius bringing him up to $296k on the day.
Dwan, who has struggled at the tables since his $5 million dollar string of losses in late 2009, sat for over 2,000 hands, but only managed to finish the day up $27k.
Antonius still seems to be having trouble finding his footing this year, which is a stark contrast to his domination in 2009.
The Team Full Tilt pro played three matches of heads-up PLO losing $54k to Sahamies, $78k to South and winning a modest $5k from Dwan.
In total Antonius adds over $126k to his losses in 2010.
Despite losing over $134k, and finishing as the day's top loser, South remains one of the year's most profitable players, up over $1 million.
