Posted on 30 March 2010 by "T".

Last week the action was really great at Full Tilt's high stakes tables. Almost all the big names in the poker world were daily playing for some serious cash in longer poker sessions than we have seen lately. Gus Hansen, Patrik Antonius, Urindanger and Richard Ashby -- all of them did well, however, neither of them could keep up with the Finnish poker poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies who won almost $2.4 million last week, which is more than 4 times the money the second biggest winner of last week won, theASHMAN103 - $561,496.

The biggest "loser" last week came to be Tom "durrrr" Dwan who lost $1,512,169. Even though its quite a lot of money to lose in just one week, its probably not a big deal for Tom Dwan who's said to be good for many, many million dollars.

Top 5 winners/losers:

1. Ziigmund, $2 379 235

2. theASHMAN103, $561 496

3. Gus Hansen, $523 373

4. Urindanger, $325 971

5. Richard Ashby, $294 159

1. durrrr, $-1 512 169
2. geoff7878, $-686 336
3. Cole South, $-545 872
4. OMGClayAiken, $-439 681
5. ZeeJustin, $-354 404

durrrr just cant get rid of his swings, he wins a couple and then loses them back next week. and pretty good result for ziigmund though hes still a bit negative

Way to go Ziggy!!! Keep the finnish flag high Blink! I think its also great news that Gus made goog game.

Shame Durrr lost, but I think the only reason why he loses is that he plays a lot more hands thru than other players, so the swings will be more common to him, than anyone else. One week hes up 2M and another down almost the same amount.

Without a donator like Guy the money keeps just floating from one player to another. This time Ziigy and Gus were up, next week Dwan and Galfond will strike back, and so on.

Congrats to Ziigmund for winning big money. That is very nice for his bankroll and I wish someday I also can win so much money at the WSOP or the bracelet.Hahaha, just joking.
