Three players who were present almost throughout proceedings were Ilari Sahamies, Phil Galfond and Andreas Tobergsen - and it is these three who really had the most interesting results. When the games were over the biggest winners were Galfond and Sahamies with Sahamies taking home over 1/2 million dollars with "MrSweets28" winning just shy of $370k. On the other end of variance for once was Tobergsen who will be licking his wounds today after dropping over $650k through the course of the day. With these results in Skjervøy is just managing to stay atop of the PokerStars 2011 leaderboard with $1.49 million to PepperoniF’s $1.44 million.

Sahamies has mostly honed his skills online, having won just shy of half a million on the live circuit.  His biggest cashout to date was the Helsinki Freezeout Main Event – No Limit Hold’em where he took home a cool $177,559.
