Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro's fantastic comeback at PokerStars

Tags: high stakes, ilari sahamies, pokerstars, Sami Lrslzk Kelopuro.
Posted on 16 September 2011 by "T".

Sami Kelopuro, better known at "LrsLzk" and "Larsluzak", is a living legend when it comes to high stakes poker online. He started playing online poker at a very young age and it didn't take long before he sat down at the highest NLH tables at PokerStars, different sites on the classic Prima Poker Network and Full Tilt and crushed most players who challenged him. Kelopuro's career has been booming ever since then and he has also managed to stay quite active throughout the years. This year, however, the Finnish poker pro has been quite anonymous at PokerStars nosebleed tables. In fact, he didn't start playing anything until April, and in the beginning of August he found himself down $177k and disappeared from the scene. 

Last Wednesday night, however, he was once again back at the poker tables and managed to eliminate most of the August losses thanks to an impressive $149k win against, for example, his fellow countryman Ilari Sahamies. Below you can see how the biggest pot of the night was played out.

$100/$200 Pot Limit Omaha 

Stinger 88 had the small blind, RealAndyBeal ($100) had the big blind ($200. Ilari FIN bet $940, and Lrslzk raised to 2,400. Stinger 88 and RealAndyBeal folded. Ilari FIN re-raised to $8,680, and LrsLzk called. Flop came KSpade9Diamond7Heart. Ilari FIN raised to $16,015, and Lrslzk raised to $64,060. Ilari FIN called with his remaining chips.

JSpade landed on the turn, and the 8Club completed the board. Lrslzk took home the pot of $95,240 with a straight - king high.

I dont usualy play Omaha, or if i do its on some Horse or Omaha freeroll, but the winning straight should have been Queen high, right? I don't know much of Omaha, but combinations are two from the hand and three from the table. So, if there was no 10 on the table, Lrslzk layed with Q10 from the hand and J98 from the table. And FIN must have really been waiting for 8, not expecting that Lrslzk could have something higher.

Sorry, i have a closer look to the cards now and get it, late... Smile Q10 from hand plus KJ9 from table made straight King high. Ok, sorry.
Btw, loosing $150k and then winning it is nice and its high stakes, but arent this values low compared with other high stakes pros, like Sahamies or even Blom? Those guys usually mess with $300k, $400k...

Sami is known to have huge swings, same as Ilari or viktor blom actually so we need to wait a bit more before saying he really improved his game...

Still there is no doubt he is one of the best pot limit omaha players out there, especially online, so with a bit of luck he could win even more Smile

One thing is sure, the PLO high stakes action on pokerstars is Sick Big Smile

nice comeback win at high stakes but will be tough surviving for long at these limits considering the crazy action taking place at pokerstars.

oh those nose bleed tables- really brings back the memories...of me sitting at .01/.02 tables lol...
i wonder how does it feel when you go to sleep knowing that you lost 100k or more in couple of hours...obviously it took more time to earn it...

@ pochui, lol, those memories are great. Reading you remembered me of my participation, last year, in a $11 tourney, where i managed to play for 1h30 and unfortunately, came out with no prize. That night and the next 15 days after that were very difficult for me, my mind was stuck into "why did my KK all-in didnt won against A6 off? How can A6 give a call to a tripled starting chips amount?". I only got through with it after start winning some SnG's in a row for several days at another poker room.
