Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies dug himself out of a serious hole last night by exploding for $275k in profit on Full Tilt.

The big score erased the $275k loss he racked up on Monday night and Sahamies is now even for the week. 

The Finnish poker pro was once again in the thick of the $300/$600 PLO 6-Max games last night but this time around he overwhelmed Gus Hansen, Hanes76, Jens “Ingenious86” Kyllonen and SmitjeSmee.

Sahamies ended up recording 592 hands before finally calling it a night. Previously down by over half a million this year, the win improves Sahamies’ record to -$325k.

Meanwhile former professional Starcraft player Eunjong Byun topped the PokerStars’ online charts winning $105k.

Other big winners included FakeMonies (+$62k), ChrisFun123 (+$48k), CHUFTY (+$31k), Vaga_Lion (+$17k) and even XWINK who brought in a modest $12k. 

Gus Hansen had a catastrophic session last night when he lost $282k over 523 hands of $300/$600 PLO.

Although he remains this year’s biggest winner, Hansen has struggled since U.S. players left Full Tilt. He’s now down over $1 million in online poker over the last seven days.

Some of the players to drop a serious amount of cash last night were venced0r (-$133k), Hannes76 (-$63k), Zypherin (-$43k), Johnbest (-$35k).

Patrik Antonius, who’s been one of the most active and successful players since online poker’s Black Friday, was finally absent from the high stakes games last night.
