Benyamine and Juanda are also big losers this month. But when some guys win others have to lose.

From the Fins only Lars Luzak is not running well this month

I don't even manage to wonder how can you win so much money.
These players are unbelieveble..
But, luckily, I won't ever play against them.... not to be the loser one.

1,5 million Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar
one day I hope to make that kind of money, I just wonder how you can lose more than a million in one month Shock I mean that's a clear sign you should take a looooooong vacation.

The question is that they have won the first million or they already had a few million. And playin high stakes is just fun for them.
 Buhl3r22/11/2008 01:00:27 GMT

Yep. But not only for the way he plays. Ziigs table talk is what makes him really famous. Tony G or Hellmuth are nothing against this Big Smile

They are too simply very serious players when it comes to High Stakes poker games, very aggressive, bluffing very well & really knows how to make people pay like Antonius always do Worship
