Online poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies initially got up from the table to apparently steal some sushi whereas the already drunk Sampo Ryynanen fumbled while trying to stack his chips. Then, both of them stood beside each other, said something, and ended the conversation with a passionate kiss, leaving everyone speechless! As the cash games went on, an unconscious Ryynanen had to be escorted out by two personnel and brought back to his room.

Is Cates showing off his poker skills or is he showing off his virility? Whatever it was, he actually went on to win at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Montenegro on May 17, taking home HK$ 3,930,000 ($500,682) for placing first at the HK$300,000 NLHE/Short Deck Mix (Event #13).
