Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies got back to his winning ways this week after getting taken by Viktor “Isildur1” Blom over the weekend for quite a bit of loot.

His total losses last weekend were over $1 million.  By Thursday, Sahamies had crawled back into the black with a $123K profit.

From PokerListings.com:

The aggressive Finn recorded 1,423 hands of $50/$100 Pot-Limit Omaha against a rotating group of players that included JP Kelly, Richard “nutsinho” Lyndaker, Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen and Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond.

By the time Sahamies finally called it quits he had built up a profit of $123,000, which made him the biggest winner of the night.
