The Finnish daredevil <strong>Ilari <em>'Ziigmund' </em>Sahamies</strong> took down the biggest pot in the history of <a href="http://www.rakerace.com/poker-rooms/pokerstars/"><strong><em>PokerStars</em></strong></a>: the young pro won $421,836 with his nut flush at the online high stakes tables. Ziggy is on a rollercoaster ride recently, he was down more than $800k this year, but it seems his dowswing ended.
The PokerStars $200/400 PLO tables are hot this September; the nosebleed action is bigger than ever. Many well-known pros like Andreas 'Skjervoy' Tobergsen, Phil 'MrSweets28' Galfond, Rafi 'refaelamit' Amit, socutiesf, bernard-bb and Ilari 'Ziigmund' Sahamies (Ilari FIN on PokerStars) battle each other in a marathon 10 hour session last night.

According to the data provided by HighstakesDB, Ziigmund emerged as the biggest winner leading with a $504,657 profit followed by Phil Galfond ($369,000) and Taiwanese 'socutiesf' ($114,000). The biggest loser came to be Torbergsen, who waved goodbye to $652,577. Ziggy's great results mostly come from a huge hand, where he took down the biggest pot in PokerStars' cash game history, $421,826.

You can watch the record-breaking hand below:



Ziigmund already scored a whopping $838,122 profit in September, with which he leads this month's profit list by far. We hope this time around he can keep his momentum and won't lose it as fast as he earned it.
