To drink alcohol and play poker at the same time is probably nothing a single serious poker player in the whole world would recommend. Probably not even Ilari "ziigmund " sahamies, 26. However, he still did so last weekend.
In one his latest blog posts, he writes that he played "totally f drunk" and lost $500,000, then another $300,000 when he woke up with a hangover the day after. After that, he decided to try his luck betting on tennis. No luck there either and he lost another $130,000. Even though he lost so much money, he's still up about $20,000 on his holiday trip to Australia.
