Ziigmund played poker drunk and lost big

Tags: Australia, drunk, Ilari ziigmund sahamies, tennis.
Posted on 02 February 2010 by "T".

To drink alcohol and play poker at the same time is probably nothing a single serious poker player in the whole world would recommend. Probably not even Ilari "ziigmund " sahamies, 26. However, he still did so last weekend.

In one his latest blog posts, he writes that he played "totally f drunk" and lost $500,000, then another $300,000 when he woke up with a hangover the day after. After that, he decided to try his luck betting on tennis. No luck there either and he lost another $130,000. Even though he lost so much money, he's still up about $20,000 on his holiday trip to Australia.

From ziigmund's blog
"so sick.I lost yesterday totally f drunk 500k....then I woke up and lost in totally hangover 300k more....then we went to watch tennis to Red Label arena or whatever and I lost 130k more to Justine Henin....Im up now 20k on my holidaytrip...whatever...now I start to play TIGHT."

lol.....Looks like we here at BRM aren't the only ones that have done this in the past. Don't worry, that statement doesnt' mean everyone here at BRM has done that, but there has been some good threads started about people losing there bankroll and not remembering.

I doubt he plays a lot when he is sober. Blink
 T3ddyKGB02/02/2010 10:37:45 GMT
yea...i thought this guy never plays sober, only when he´s drunk.
 DAGOR02/02/2010 10:59:28 GMT
Hello everybody!
It is clear that alcohol and poker is very rarely a happy marriage lol.
And if it does not we be proud and say that it is a good player?
Not really a rather lucky lol!
See you soon for new posts! Smile
 jporp02/02/2010 11:49:22 GMT
Not the first time and maybe not the last. He is a sick person. Playing like that he will get broke one day
 JunkyMonkey02/02/2010 12:04:02 GMT
Maybe he's poker AND alcohol addicted...
 jevo02/02/2010 12:31:56 GMT
Who says poker players have to be role models? Poker isn't poker with-out all the degenerates that play and make it slightly entertaining. Imagine sitting at a table with greenstein or harrington clones all day every day. Yawn.

 sponsorplay02/02/2010 12:52:56 GMT
I like playing poker when I am drunk, but I never win when I am drunk Confused

However it is great fun and okay maybe you lose some money, but you would have spended it anyway if you went to town and drank beers and drinks down there. Blink
 MANUEDO02/02/2010 13:14:43 GMT
This is the answer to all nonsense polls asking us '' it's better to play drunk or not ? '' Blink To be honest, I miss them so much Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile
 Davoodoo02/02/2010 14:13:57 GMT
Who did he lose against and at wich site was he playing ?
 Chartoule02/02/2010 15:55:33 GMT
Hi!!

Playing drunk, what a fish!!!!! (joke). Pros have leaks too and bad days. Maybe he was doing a video 'Buddies Dont Do This At Home'.

Bye and aces for all!!
 DaMessiah66602/02/2010 16:41:53 GMT
Thanks, now I begin to understand why I'm losing my money ... Big Smile
 psycokiller02/02/2010 18:17:27 GMT
Shoudl've known better......he'll do it again.
 LaBaiz02/02/2010 19:26:51 GMT
I think that is a big no no, to play poker when your drunk or fell bad from some stuff (hangover or sickness), It is never a good ending for your bankroll then.
 GabeKaplan02/02/2010 20:26:43 GMT
You know I always say drinking is the wrong thing to do, But I seen a player at a $1/$2 table that was drunk and had won $400 and was playing supurb while making everyone think he was toasted, But unfortuently he had a very bad beat and lost $300 in 1 hand when his Kings full lost to 4 of a kind, The look on his face and you could tell he wasnt that drunk, Dont ever fall for the fake drunks, Dammm now I want a beer and I havent had one this year yet lol
 ZmxPowah02/02/2010 22:34:42 GMT
Funny ... and now it is real or not... maybe he is just talking he was drunked so it wouldn't sound so bad Tongue and people will not make use of his mistakes.
Anyway when i saw him playing sometimes i was thinking he can be drunk so... nothing changes Tongue.
Gratz for the winners ^^.
 m0n003/02/2010 00:30:51 GMT
What?! was he in Oz to play in Aussie Millions? i'm not sure if i remember his name mention among the participating players? (maybe he got drunk and got kicked out from Crown Smile )
although he might've played on high roller tables...

... and btw, the tennis court where he watched Henin lose was Rod Laver Arena, not "Red Label" Smile
 Doomsday_vic03/02/2010 02:29:35 GMT
Haha, hes really good at spewing money. But I tend to lose only a few hundred, which is pocket change compared to him. Poker and alcohol isnt the best of mix if you're trying to make money...
 SuperNoob03/02/2010 06:21:37 GMT
totally f stupid
doesn't suit a pro to lose his money like this, he got what he deserved and surely it'll teach him a lesson. now gl winning tht back
 Kristan03/02/2010 11:08:40 GMT
lol, Thats how Ziggy plays from time to time. He is known in FT poker as craziest agressive, swinging, abusive poker pro ever.
And im not sure if it taught him a lesson, because its not the first time he spends over half million being drunk lol.
 dozn0103/02/2010 12:39:03 GMT
hey this is my drinking partner, we get smashed every night and lose our bankroll Smile
 mazas03/02/2010 13:31:43 GMT

How many big drunk loosers do you know then besides Ziggy? Big Smile
I think hes just a patriot trying to play poker anytime any place any stadium Tongue

Every poker player is remembered for some stupid things, like Hellmuths anger and Dwans & Iveys opened mouth lol. Thats what points them out, otherwise it would be boring to watch.
 Fakiry03/02/2010 14:53:49 GMT
I would have to be very very very drunk to play $300.000 in poker with the stomach full of alcohol. Ok, so i can drink whyle i play and get real drunk i finish the night spending €20 on poker, but thats nothing compared with €20.000. Everyone (at least almost) gets fresh when listening about $300K in game! Ziigmund's head's very messed up...
 BhStaljin03/02/2010 15:28:29 GMT

Absolutely stupid from him....really really stupid....He talks to others not to play drunk but he does it anyway.....

I played once drunk I hope I will never ever again do that.....

Good Luck on Tables
 Hajinnho03/02/2010 16:55:02 GMT
hmm, i never did... What you think... if winning players become loosers when they are drunken, it also works the other way around? Playing drunk as a loosing player becoming a winner? Big Smile Blink
 rattacha03/02/2010 20:40:14 GMT
poker... drunk... sounds like an afternoon wakeing in a strange place whitout cash, wallet, id, and little finger Smile

This is my imaginary picture. Kinda maffia like Big Smile
 leroi2104/02/2010 01:44:22 GMT
