Online Poker Player Ziigmund

The Finnish online poker sensation Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies was on an impressive upswing when he saw his whole world crash and burn to the tune of $275,000.  As PokerListings.com noted:  “Ziigmund was smoked!” 

Since April 15, when three of the largest online poker rooms were sent packing from the US market, Ziigmund took full advantage of the “softer” player pool, going up $137K.

It was all downhill from there as PokerListings notes:

Sahamies played 878 hands of Pot-Limit Omaha ranging from $50/$100 all the way up to $300/$600.

It didn’t matter what stakes Sahamies played as he lost on almost every table that he opened.

He was hit hardest in the 6-Max $300/$600 games, however, as noted pros like Rui Cao, Patrik Antonius, Gus Hansen, Esvedra and ronnyr37617 traded huge pots back and forth.

Speaking of Antonius and Hansen.  Patrik is up $1.5 million since the April 15 US crackdown while Hansen has seen a small profit but remains up just shy of $4 million on the year online.
