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 eurovision..team 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.
