From High Stakes DB:

In five hours of play and after a little over 100 hands of play in a busy morning of $50/$100 PLO action the outspoken Finn was able to leave the tables a comfortable victor, his healthy profit coming largely from one player - French poker pro Romain “moirhums” Arnaud. Moirhums has only been playing regularly on Stars since April this year and yesterday’s session more than wiped out the $138k profit he had accrued thus far in 2011.

Ilari FIN put the pressure on from the word go and didn’t let up until the final hand was played, taking all the major pots along the way.

Ziigmund comes to us by way of Finland.
