Ziigmund Schools South, Hastings for $759k
Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies massacred Cole South and Brian Hastings in the high-stakes online cash games last night.
In a three-hour span, Sahamies recorded nearly 1,000 hands of heads-up $500/$1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha against the two.
South, likely still stinging from a $700k loss to Ziigmund last week, ended up losing $602k to the swingy Finn.
The loss erases all of his profits this year putting him down over $800k.
Hastings didn’t do much better, although his $187k loss over 600 hands seemed less significant.
It appears Sahamies has recovered nicely from an awful August, earning nearly $1 million in September so far.
Sahamies is up $1.5 million in 2010 and the majority of his profits have come directly from South’s bankroll.
Although Ziigmund stole the spotlight, there were a number of notable pros also active on Full Tilt last night.
Patrik Antonius had a decent $83k day, Chau “La Key U” Giang earned $63k and Phil Ivey took down $52k. Even Gus Hansen recorded a small profit of $36,000.
The day was bad all around for CardRunners instructors as Brian “sbrugby” Townsend lost $208k. Limit specialist deprimiert also continued his downward spiral by losing $53k.
Here are a few of the biggest hands from last night. Be sure to check out our online poker stats section for more information.
