What has happened to Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies' game in the past few days? Up until last Sunday, he was the biggest loser online this year, with over $1 million in losses! Now, 3 days later, he has won back about $750,000 and nearly eliminated all the losses! Very impressive and kind of crazy at the same time.
It all began on Sunday evening when Sahamies played $50/$100 and $100/$200 PLO for 4,5 hours and won $143k. The very next day, he played over 1000 hands of PLO against players such as Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky and "Fake Love888" and got away with a $277 profit (about $200k came from "Sauce123").
Yesterday the winning streak continued for Ilari Sahamies and he finished the day with a $270k profit (over 2,500 hands played). A large portion of these winnings once again came from Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky on a $100/$200 PLO table. In total, Sahamies won $131k from "Sauce123" in the session, and it was mostly thanks to taking down the 2 biggest pots of the night that Ilari ended up as the big winner of this action-filled heads-up match.
