The news is not good for Finnish online poker phenom Ziigmund, whose real name is Ilari Sahamies.

Since the start of October, Ziigmund has lost an unprecedented $3 million. 

The loss prompted him to write on his Facebook page:

"I'm f done with poker, sickest downswing ever. Basic downswing, not in the mood for playing, but still playing, whatever :)"

High Stakes DB reports that the Fin is November’s biggest loser so far in online poker.

But have no fear Ziigmund, as High Stakes DB also points out, Gus Hansen is the biggest winner of November.  Hansen was in the same type of downswing as Ziigmund around this same time last year.  In fact, as of this past August, Hansen had lost $7,753,624 at Full Tilt Poker alone.
