Ziigmund Dominates the High Stakes in September

2011. September 16.
<strong>Ilari<em> &rsquo;Ziigmund&rsquo; </em>Sahamies</strong> has built a profit of about $1 million in the first two weeks of September. The biggest loser currently is <strong>Viktor <em>&rsquo;Islidur1&rsquo; </em>Blom</strong>.
Apparently coming back from an extensive downswing, Ilari ’Ziigmund’ Sahamies (aka ’Ilari FIN’ at PokerStars) finished 3rd on the August money list and started September outstandingly: with +$996,883, he is currently in the lead after the first two weeks. He won $300,000 already on 1st September and repeated this feat on the 5th (that said, he lost $250,000 right the day after).

The real action, however, started on 7th September when ‘socutiesf’ appeared at the $100/$200 PLO tables and instantly lost a bigger amount to ‘Ziggy.' ’Socutiesf,’ who more than likely went to tilt, moved to $200/$400 where the biggest online high stakes action commenced since Black Friday. Several six figures pots were exchanged, including the biggest ever at PokerStars: one of $421,000 that went to ‘Ziigmund’.



Sahamies won a total of $541.000 in the session, Phil ‘MrSweets28’ Galfond took $369,000 and even ‘socutiesf’ managed to turn his daily account to +EV, finishing up $113,000. Surprisingly, the biggest loser of the day turned out to be PLO pro Andreas ‘Skjervoy’ Tobergsen with -$652,000.

In the second week of the month, ‘Ziigmund’ ended up on the top of the daily profit lists twice, with a total of five times so far in September.

The biggest winner of August, Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom does not manage nearly so well, however; he has lost $635,628 so far in September, despite not participating in the aforementioned $200/$400 PLO session. He has been seen at unusually low stakes tables as well lately, at $5/$10, $3/$6, $2/$4 and even $1/$2.
