Posted on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 by "T".

The action on PokerStars' nosebleed tables has slowed down quite a bit since Full Tilt Poker reopened for business.

Posted on Thursday, August 23, 2012 by "T".

The action has been great almost every single day at PokerStars nosebleed tables these past 2 weeks or so.

EPT Barcelona Main Event: 61 Players Left. Ilari Sahamies in 3rd Place!

Tags: ept barcelona, fatima moreira de melo, ilari sahamies, john juanda, pokerstars
Posted on Thursday, August 23, 2012 by "T".

After 3 days of play, PokerStars' European Poker Tour Barcelona main event player field has been narrowed down from 1082 players to only 61. Day 4 will begin in a few hours with Antonio Duda as the chip leader (1.47 million), closely followed by Samuel Rodriquez (1,141,600). In third place is no one else other than the Finnish high-stakes guru Ilari Sahamies with 1,269,000 chips, followed by John Juanda (968k) and Fatima Moreira de Melo (955k) in 4th and 5th place, so expect Day 4 to be something special! 

All of the remaining players are guaranteed to walk away with €11,550 each. The 9 players who make it to the final table will be guaranteed at least €55,100 each. However, no one will probably be happy with that amount since the first prize is an astounding €1,007,550!

We will be back with another update tomorrow!

Tags: high stakes, ilari sahamies, pokerstars
Posted on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 by "T".

2012 has been one hell of a rollercoaster ride for the Finnish poker pro Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies. Winning hundreds of thousands of dollars one night - just to lose it+a bit more the very next day. That's nothing unusual at all when it comes to Ilari Sahamies's way of playing poker. Besides that, there have been a few times this year when Sahamies couldn't continue playing because he ran out of cash - something that has added fuel to the broke rumors.

Posted on Thursday, December 29, 2011 by "T".

Patrik Antonius and Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, both from Finland, played an action-filled (but short) heads-up the other day that thousands of people watched on PokerStars. Sahamies, who's one of the biggest winners this year, took the command almost straight away and totally dominated against his fellow country men. In fact, he took every single cent from Antonius account - about 190k US dollars - and the game was over.

Well, not for Sahamies. Instead of enjoying the win and eating some Christmas turkey, Sahamies continued playing at PokerStars nosebleed tables. Unfortunately things didn't go so well from there on but still he got away with a profit of about $144k for the day.

The Finnish poker pro Illari Sahamies has done it again. At Grand Casino in Baden, Germany, he once again made the biggest mistake a poker player can do - drink alcohol and play for high stakes. According to rumors, 16 players took part in the game where hundreds of thousands of euro changed owner, and Sahamies was so drunk that he barely could stand up. Apart of that, he called his opponents "retard, "monkey", "idiot" and other rude things. However, it's not clear whether he lost or won any money that night.

Posted on Friday, September 16, 2011 by "T".

Sami Kelopuro, better known at "LrsLzk" and "Larsluzak", is a living legend when it comes to high stakes poker online. He started playing online poker at a very young age and it didn't take long before he sat down at the highest NLH tables at PokerStars, different sites on the classic Prima Poker Network and Full Tilt and crushed most players who challenged him. Kelopuro's career has been booming ever since then and he has also managed to stay quite active throughout the years. This year, however, the Finnish poker pro has been quite anonymous at PokerStars nosebleed tables. In fact, he didn't start playing anything until April, and in the beginning of August he found himself down $177k and disappeared from the scene.

Both of them lost about $500,000 each. We can just hope that they will have better luck this week.

After the impressing $150k win against Terje "terken89" Augdal last Sunday, Viktor Blom had another big winning session already the night after. This time the young gun took on Finland's very own high stakes star Ilari "Ziigmund"/"Ilari FIN" Sahamies.

They started the match on two Omaha PL $50/$100 tables and ended up about even before they decided to only play 1 table. Isildur1 quickly took the lead and Sahamies kept on adding $25,000 to his stack. After some time both players had quite deep stacks and it was just a matter of time before a big hand would occur.

After Sunday's loss against Daniel Negreanu it didn't take long before Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was back on the nosebleed tables as he took on the Finnish poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies in three $25/$50 PLO matches. It only took Isildur1 745 hands to win $106,882 from Ziigmund. It was a well-needed win for the Swede who has lost some serious cash this year.

High Stakes: Ziigmund denies to have lost millions of dollars this year

Tags: finland, high stakes, ilari sahamies, ziigmund
Posted on Thursday, December 02, 2010 by "T".

According to Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies latest blog update, it seems like he hasn't lost as much money as many poker sites have claimed in the past few months. We have heard of figures between 2-5 million dollars, but according to Ziigmund, who partly admits that he has lost a lot of money because of playing bad, he has lost about $1 million dollars. If this is true, it probably means that Ziigmund has been successful in different live games and maybe he's also playing with fake aliases on different poker sites?

"This year hasnt been as good it should be,I think Im down like a million...and Gus...dont say I should be more losing.I think I have been unlucky but I have played very bad also....in drunk...in hangover...and tilting etcetc...now I take small break and come back to smaller games...I try :) Lets see what happens," Ziigmund writes in his latest blog update.

Posted on Thursday, November 11, 2010 by "T".

The Finnish poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies started 2010 with a few winning sessions and it looked very good for a while. But suddenly the poker gods turned against him and since then he has lost big almost every single month.

Last night Ziigmund took on Daniel "jungleman12" Cates in Pot Limit Omaha session, which only lasted 300 hands. Ziigmund lost $300,000 in this session and couldn't hold back his anger after they stopped playing. This is what he wrote in the chat.

About a week ago, it almost looked like the finnish poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies' losing streak had come to an end after a few winning sessions. However, it didn't take long before he started to lose big again. $311,000 is how much Ziigmund lost last week, which means that he has lost almost $1.7 million in October. One of the players who managed to win big against Ziigmund was harrington23. In one of the sessions between these two, Ziigmund was so tilted and frustrated that he decided not to continue playing.

harrington25: zig ur learning good

Ziigmund: ?

Video: Ziigmund in Finnish Fear Factor!

Posted on Friday, February 12, 2010 by "T".

We are getting quite used to watching, hearing and reading about Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies high stakes games (live and online) against some of the world's best poker players. It's not a secret that he has made himself a name and a fortune from playing this high for such a long time.

However, we all know that many things in life becomes routine and just an ordinary day after some time. This applies even to the most famous and rich poker players, who have everything an ordinary person could ever dream of. Could this be the reason why Ziigmund wanted some new challenges and took part in Finnish Fear Factor last year?

HighStakes: Ilari Sahamies lost big last night

Tags: high stakes, Ilari Sahamies, tom dwan
Posted on Tuesday, December 29, 2009 by "T".

The past week has been very quite at the higher stakes on many poker sites. Its seems like even poker players need a break once in a while. Yesterday night, however, it was finally time for some action at Full Tilt poker as one of Finlands biggest pros Ilari Sahmies and the American high stakes king Tom Dwan were about to play for some serious cash.

Tom "durrrrr" Dwan took the command straight away and showed Sahmies why he's one of the worlds best high stakes players. Tom Dwan took down 6 of 8 of the biggest pots and was up around $1 milllion for a while. After this, we saw a new Sahamies who played much better and more focused as he managed to take back around $340k in no-time. Tom Dwan is now up around $2 million dollars this month. It must feel really great for Dwan to eliminate some of the loses he had in November when he lost more than 6 million dollars.

High Stakes: Ilari Sahamies in a very bad mood

Posted on Wednesday, September 23, 2009 by "T".

Last week one could read on Ilari Sahamies blog that things are not going his way at the moment. For example he complained a lot about himself being unlucky, but also that he played very bad. All this because he lost 1.4 million dollars (400k of them coin flips) in two hours against Phil Ivey. After this huge loss he wrote the following in the poker chat about his scheduled trip to London to play EPT and WSOPE.


"Ziigmund: no london"
"Ziigmund: jumping from balkony"
"Phil Ivey: lol"

However, according to what he wrote in his blog, it seems like he's still planning on going to London.

"I hate that fcking poker still and havent had good feeling playing that bullshit game like in 4 months....Whatever...Im going to fcking London next week where I play fcking EWSOP,fcking EPT and F Cesar cup and those fcki"

HighStakes: Good week for Finnish poker players

Tags: durrr, finland, full tilt poker, Ilari Sahamies, martonas, patrik antonius, tom dwan
Posted on Wednesday, September 02, 2009 by "T".

Last week was a great week for some high stakes players from Finland. However, the most successful of those were Patrik Antonius who won over a million dollars, and his fellow countryman, Ilari Sahamies, who won close to half a million dollars. Most of the money Antonius won came from the American pro Tom "durrr" Dwan. Tom "durrr" Dwan came to be the biggest loser last week with around $900,000 lost. But as we all know, that is not an amount that Tom Dwan will cry so much over.

Another poker player that lost a lot of money last week was "Martonas", or the "unknown Swede" as many people call him. It seems like "Martonas" has given up playing on the highest stakes at Full Tilt poker. Because lately he can be found on the lower stakes at Full Tilt. Probably he has realized that he can't afford the enormous swings, or just think its easier making money on the lower stakes?

HighStakes: Hard words in the poker chat between Gus Hansen and Ziigmund

Posted on Monday, March 02, 2009 by "T".

Ilari Sahamies "Ziigmund", the Finnish poker pro is known to be a so called trash-talker in the chat on the poker tables on the higher limits. Not long ago Ziigmund really got tilted when he lost with a flush against a Gus Hansen's full house. One can only feel a bit sad for the Dane that had to hear these angry words from Ziigmund.
