High Stakes: Ilari Sahamies's Back In The Red

Tags: barcode, high stakes, ilari sahamies, pokerstars.
Posted on 05 November 2012 by "T".

The Finnish poker pros's amazing winning streak has come to an end. After working himself up to a $1.25 million profit for 2012 in just about 1,5 week's time, he dropped close to $900k last Friday and was showing a $25k total loss for 2012 on Saturday.

Now you might think that Sahamies played bad and tilted away his money, but the truth is that he played very well. It almost seemed like the poker gods had teamed up with his opponents given that he lost almost every single pot he was favourite to win. In total, he lost 4 (3 to barcode and 1 to patpatman) of the 10 biggest pots on PokerStars last Friday. 

POT 1

Sahamies opened up the pot for $1,360, and 1II1II1II responded with a $4,240 raise. Sahamies fired $12,880 into the pot and 1II1II1II reraised to $38,800. Sahamies called.

The flop came down 4Spade3Spade6Heart and 1II1II1II checked. Sahamies betted 23,000, and 1II1II1II pushed all in for his remaining $146,758 chips. Sahamies called with his remaining $96,956.

1II1II1II 4DiamondASpadeQSpade10Diamond - flush draw

The turn card JSpade put an end to it all and 1II1II1II took home the pot of $317,592 with the nut flush.

POT 2
After some raising and reraising pre-flop, the pot was $55,520 when the flop 2Diamond7SpadeJDiamond hit the table. Sahamies checked and 1II1II1II fired $19,200 into the pot. Sahamies shoved his remaining $99,930. 1II1II1II called.

The turn card was the 3Club and Sahamies was only one card away from taking home the pot of $255,378. But unfortunately, for Sahamies, the final card was the 6Diamond and 1II1II1II took home the massive pot with a flush.

POT 3
1II1II1II bet $880 from the button and Sahamies raised to $2,240. 1II1II1II reraised to $7,920, Sahamies made it $23,760. 1II1II1II called. FLOP 8Spade4Heart2Spade. Sahamies betted $47,518 and 1II1II1II went all in. Sahamies called.

The turn brought the 9Club and both players had 2 pair (eights and nines). It looked like it would be a split pot, but the poker gods had other plans. The river was the 5Diamond and 1II1II1II took home the pot of $239,446 with a straight.

POT 4
patpatman betted $800 on the button and Sahamies raised to $2,700. patpatman reraised to $8,100
and Sahamies called. The first three cards were dealt: 9SpadeQClub3Diamond. Both players checked to the turn card 2Spade. Sahamies betted $16,198, and patpatman answered with a reraise of $64,792. Sahamies pushed his remaining stack of $183,777 towards the centre of the table. patpatman called with his remaining $36,421. The pot was $218,626 when both players revelaed their cards.

Sahamies probably couldn't believe his own eyes when the 6Spade came on the river and denied him another huge pot.

well what can i say? thats poker!
 Fakiry05/11/2012 14:12:24 GMT
I even thought he had been playing higher amounts, but it looks that it was just the table cards not giving him what he needed, or giving others the only thing that could ruin his game. Sometimes it's just like this. There's no point in trying to find out what have we done wrong, the problem's on the game itself, that gives a lot of opportunities for more than one thing to happen in each hand.

Indo i think you found wrong website. This isn't charity website even tho they feature no-deposit bonuses.
 djpremier05/11/2012 16:59:42 GMT
Oh my F:n god...
I know bad beats happen to everyone and most of the time I handle them with no problem but man that's wicked :S ...
 Mysik8605/11/2012 17:02:29 GMT
So... what can we say? The PokerStars is really really rigged... You can't do nothing when you got that card, and the Magic PokerStars River® is what it is Smile
 mcedger06/11/2012 04:10:27 GMT
much higher variance in omaha
 zohaan06/11/2012 05:54:00 GMT
That's Tough luck for Shahamies And all I have to say that Odds and Luck were against him
 Fakiry06/11/2012 14:41:34 GMT
Yeah, Indo, you're being a bit sarcastic, we can all talk bad about poker pros, but taking in consideration we keep playing the game online and involving money on it, this can only mean we all would like to reach those values that pros are used to deal with, even if it was just one time. And i bet you agree with me on this, even if you play it for fun, you also have requested bonus at BRM, so your intention was to make money from zero with the starting help of the bonus. Sometimes it goes well, others don't.
 Macubaas06/11/2012 18:42:53 GMT
I have to say that i saw what he played lately and there were some huge bad beats, i personally saw a over 300k pot on which he had the best hand on flop and eventually lost the hand after going all in...

Still, he should have stopped when he saw that his entire profit is done. Maybe we will see him on ftp.
 fcumred06/11/2012 23:49:13 GMT
Is it just me that feels sick when I see the stakes these players play at.

Lets face it, its not real money, its just paper money being passed around from player to player.
