Here is how it all went down a la High Stakes DB:

Most of the morning sessions saw him up against his usual rival Barcode and also Sam "tr1cky7" Trickett. Barcode actually had the best of these early games, making around an $87k profit at the $200/$400 tables. He also took down the biggest hand of the day;

Tough river for Ilari FIN as Barcode's wrap completes without filling up Ilari's flush draw - $223.1k pot

Sahamies continued his hot streak through the evening and it was during that time he had a great chance to win one of the biggest pots ever tracked at PokerStars.com.

From High Stakes DB:

Both players flop the nut straight but with flush draws and full house possibilities Ilari is actually over 50% favourite to take down this entire $458k pot before the board bricks
