The total take was $1,030,543 won between Monday and Wednesday. 

Monday’s winnings totaled $182k before he started playing $200/$400 PLO tables that resulted in a $337k win in just an hour.

From HighStakesDB.com:

By the end of play yesterday he had topped the daily leader board by a considerable margin with a $662k win. Not satisfied with that however he was back at the tables this morning and managed to win another $187k.

Up until Monday, Ilari was languishing as one of the years biggest loser, down around $1.4 million. As we speak he is now only $370k in the hole - still a lot of money to you and me but apparently only an hour and a halfs work for an inform Mr Sahamies judging by his performance at table Ida V.

As you may expect, Ilari figured fairly strongly in the days biggest pots - taking down 7 of the biggest 8 pots.
