Finnish pokerstar in trouble

Tags: Ilari Ziigmund Sahamies.
Posted on 05 May 2009 by "T".

Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies is one of the best high stakes players in the world and usually the quite type when playing live. Not like Mike "The Mouth" Matusow with other words. But when it comes to online poker the Finnish poker pro find it hard not to tilt in the chat after running bad. This have made many poker players around the globe upset as they think one should expect better from an ideal poker player like Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies.

According to a big poker site the Finnish poker pro, Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies is calling people names and joke about them being homosexuals and Romans. For example he was in a really bad mood after losing some big pots to the Danish poker pro, Gus Hansen recently. The anger and the frustration was released in the poker chat shortly after...

Taken from the chat (collection from a few poker sessions between"Ziigmund" and Gus)

"gus likes eurovision
gus should sing in chez romanisa
gus is singer from romania
czech rebuplic singer from eurovision gay bar GUSTAV HANSEN"
Gus romanian eurovisionsinger Hansen can't play poker
Gustav likes to sing karaoke with his gipsy friends"

Sahamies takes easy on the critics he got in many poker forums..

-It's only talk, no hard feelings.

-I joke with Gus sometimes, but some people take it very serious, even though there are no hard feelings between me and Gus Hansen.

Even though that the hard words between him and Gus Hansen might be more like a joke, "Ziigmund" cannot deny that sometimes he cross the line when he writes stuff to people he don't even know. For example he once accused Americans for being fat and retarded because they don't know where Finland is. Another time he told a player that he wished Usama Bin Laden would bomb his house.

Lol! Everybody tilts and sometimes it is hard not to talk in chat and say words that are not polite! Lol but the thing he said about the americans is not false. A big percentage of the americans do not know european countries, they only look to their own belly!

Old news.

The trash talk against Hansen is good, but at least half a year old. Shows that Ziggy can't be playing sober to often. Big Smile

Well.. I Think this is most missleading headline i ever seen on BRM Smile

I was thinking at all other things than tilting Blink

Must give it to him.. We are all tilting at some point, and we are all thinking in those lanes as he does! But he has the balls to write to Gus etc. Thumps up for that! Blink

The chat is there to be used but he must expect a titty twister when he meets the people he bad mouths Evil

I don't see anything different from what I read every day on chat.
It's absolutely not easy to stay calm but is the only key to win.
Often people blaming in chat lose their stack in few hands

I always think its better not to right at poker chats because it gives bad luck! if you think, this is true, because if you are concerned with what you are writing and what others are answering, then you will not be concentrated on the game and you have more probabilities to loose!
 CunteN06/05/2009 18:28:36 GMT
Finnish players...hahaha... Big Smile
 soundZspy07/05/2009 00:22:03 GMT
Yeah ban him from all worthwhile sites & tournaments. I'm from Finland and think that his behaviour is childish & not to be tolerated at all. BAN HIM!

the issue is would you be willing to take that kind of insults face to face? If not what's the difference?
 EpsonJack07/05/2009 00:48:25 GMT
