Thursday July 19, 2012 : MILLION DOLLAR WEEK FOR FINNISH POKER ACE
Sahamies crushes the nosebleed tables at Pokerstars
According to High Stakes DB, Finnish online poker ace Ilari Sahamies has been crushing the opposition on the high stakes virtual tables at Pokerstars.
Sahamies started out on his heater over the weekend, hammering opposition on the $200/$400 Pot Limit Omaha tables and ending a session of just under 600 hands with $500,000 profit.
The Finn's luck and talent continued into Monday and Tuesday this week, when he reportedly made another $444,000 addition to his bank balance after dominating action against two players, and then went back online Wednesday to earn yet another $182,000 on the same high stakes PLO tables.
The million dollar run helped put Sahamies back on the positive side of the ledger after a series of losses earlier in the year.
The HighStakes Database also notes that online player Zepherin is 2012's biggest loser on the nosebleed tables so far, down $2.7 million. The mercurial Isildur1 – Viktor Blom – is said to be down around $1.5 million this year as well.
