The action has really been on in Bobbys Room at Bellagio in Las Vegas lately. According to the Finnish poker pro, Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies own website, he lost a $2,4 million pot and Doyle Brunson lost $2.1 million within an hour. Doyle said in his blog that he have never seen so much money won and lost each night as in Bobbys Room.

The biggest poker pro's and also the richest ones have been playing for millions of dollars at Bobbys Room in Las Vegas after that WSOP ended. Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, David Benyamine and Doyle Brunson, just to mention a few of the players that have been involved in the biggest pots. Doyle Brunson and "Ziigmund" have been 2 of the biggest losers so far with millions of dollars lost just in a few hands. For example "Ziigmund" lost a 2,4 million dollar pot and also around $3,5 millions in "China poker".

Doyle Bruson's own words (taken from his blog)
- "The poker games are out of control at the Bellagio. I've never seen games where so much money is won and lost each night"
- "Time for poker with the boys from Finland. They have damaged the poker economy around here for the past month"

Guys like durrr are really used to play such amounts, but the others... i don't know if they did the best option playing high stake with those guys. Ok Doyle is big pro star and knows what he does at a poker table, but high stakes is a different poker level. Its like knowing to play limit and start playing no limit: diferent things!

 dianakyra26/07/2009 00:08:44 GMT

 aspas226/07/2009 12:40:10 GMT
yeh who won?
 GeneYuss27/07/2009 09:02:31 GMT
That would be cool if they filmed it..Are they going to have these big games often?
 Calmplay27/07/2009 09:09:55 GMT
I've never saw that huge amount of money in only 1 pot before, yes I would also like to see the video of that hand if they filmed it... I think that should be the record of the biggest pot ever in only 1 hand.
 GeneYuss28/07/2009 10:45:06 GMT
Calmplay, ya, that's a lot of $$. I don't think it's the record because there was this billionaire who would play with the pros 100k/200k blinds and pots easily reached millions.
