Jerry Yang won his ticket to the 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event Main Event through a $225 satellite and bested a field of 6,358 entries for an increadible $8.25 million first prize.

Ilari Sahamies is up more than $300k this year and is among the biggest winners online. But it seems like the Finnish poker icon's economy still isn't all that good -- even though he has turned a big minus into a big plus in just 2-3 weeks time. During a heads-up match against Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky a few days ago, Sahamies revealed in the chat that he's broke.

Isildur1 probably doesn't need a closer presentation since he was the most talked-about person in the end of 2009 thanks to the millions of dollars he won and lost in no-time. Anyhow, we all know that Isildur1 ended up losing everything he had won, and also that he lost about 2 million dollars from his own bankroll. After this, Isildur1 disappeared from the high stakes scene for a while, and then he returned a few weeks later playing $5/$10 NL. This time, the unknown Swede lost about $400 and didn't seem to care about the money at all (who can blame him?).

Now, after a few weeks of complete silence, he's once again back at the poker tables. But, unfortunately, it's on even lower stakes than last time - $0,25/$0.50 NL Holdem. Isildur1 sat down at the table with $10, which he lost later on after that his pair of kings was beaten by three of a kind 5's.
