At 1.1 mill euro, online poker player Ziigmund comes in as the 9th richest man in Finland as revealed by HS.fi.  Ziigmund’s real name is Ilari Sahamies and he is recognized as one of the most popular high stake poker players online today. 

When one considers investments and so-called “unearned” income, Sahamies drops to 115th place and the top 10 are all billionaires, based on a list provided by Ilta-Sanomat.

Ziigmund could drop below 500 if his bad luck streak from October continues into this month.  He is down more than $1.6 million for October and in the hole for about $500,000 after being up over 7 figures at one point during 2010.

Sahamies ranked as the biggest loser this past week in online high stakes poker play.

According to his Wikipedia page, Sahamies, who enjoys drinking alcohol, used to occasionally play online poker while intoxicated.  That habit caused him to lose US$3 million over a four-year period.
