9/29/09 – Back in August this year the big names in high risk/high value online cash games were flocking to the Full Tilt Poker nosebleed tables to get some of the action generated by a still unidentified Swedish high-roller using the handle ‘martonas' . Pokerstars
 
This enigmatic player enjoyed a few weeks of roller coaster action with literally millions of dollars crossing the tables before the losses started mounting to end around $3 to 3.5 million and ‘martonas' disappeared from the scene – a tactic he (or she?) has used before.
 
Expect to see more of the same this week, because ‘martonas' is back and with a considerable bang, being in the thick of some frantic poker action that saw 49 x $100 000 pots on the Full Tilt tables playing $300/$600 No-Limit Hold'em against the likes of ‘Urindanger' Dang and Cole South.
 
After over a thousand hands martonas and urindanger were about even, but South fared rather worse in almost 900 hands, finding himself down $125 000 following one particularly brutal exchange over a mega-pot.
 
Martonas had not finished yet, however and went on to to take player ‘liverpoolfc0985' for around $64 000 to end the night in almost $200 000 profit, which probably means Full Tilt will be seeing martonas again sooner rather than later.
 
The current big losers include David Benyamine, reportedly down almost three-quarters-of-a-million dollars – most of that in five gigantic pots totalling $670 000, with Ilari ‘Ziigmund' Sahamies and Tom Marchese as the principal beneficiaries.
