Posted on 10 September 2010 by "T".

Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies games at the high stakes tables has been like a roller coaster lately. Some days he wins big and others he lose big. Some people think that his new date, Miss Finland, could be one of the reasons for this when others think that he's just running cold at the moment. However, between 8-9 September Ziigmund had a great run and won $740,000 in just about 1,000 hands. It will be interesting to see whether or not Ziigmund can keep it up and start playing more stable and avoid the big swings.

Ilari "ziigmund" Sahamies is not only known for being one of the world's best poker players but also for being a real charmer who's dating lots of beautiful women. He dated, for example, the finnish model Hanna-Leena Turpeinen a while ago. But things are moving fast in Ziigmund's life and now he has someone else "on the hook". According to the finnish magazine Seiska, Ilari "ziigmund" Sahamies and Viivi Pumpanen, 22, were seen together in Ziigmund's Mercedes in central Helsinki not long ago.

When a journalist of the magazine asked Ziigmund if he's dating Miss Finland at the moment, he didn't deny it at the same time as he asked the journalist, with a slightly worried tone in his voice, if he had any pictures of them together.

Last week the action was really great at Full Tilt's high stakes tables. Almost all the big names in the poker world were daily playing for some serious cash in longer poker sessions than we have seen lately. Gus Hansen, Patrik Antonius, Urindanger and Richard Ashby -- all of them did well, however, neither of them could keep up with the Finnish poker poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies who won almost $2.4 million last week, which is more than 4 times the money the second biggest winner of last week won, theASHMAN103 - $561,496.

Posted on 15 December 2009 by "T".

After that Isildur1 lost big to Brian Townsend last Sunday and also stopped bringing in money to the tables he went broke on - many said that he probably was running out of money and that he would soon be gone from the high stakes scene. However, already on Monday he was back on the high stakes, but this time "only" playing $100/$200 PLO against Cole South. The losing streak continued for the Swede in the session against Cole South and at around 6:00AM on Tuesday morning they called it a day.

"He must be missing a chromosome"
That is what Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies said about Isildur1 in recent interview he made in Finnish radio. However, Ziigmund said that he thinks that Isildur1 is one of the best NL heads-up players in the world and that he should stick to playing that instead of Pot Limit Omaha. Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies also said that he dont have the bankroll to play as high as he and Isildur1 did for a while. However, it seemed to have paid off as he's up about a million dollars against the Swede.

It seems like Isildur1 (a.k.a. The Unknown Swede) has no plans on giving up after losing $3,3 million to Patrik Antonius a few days ago. Because already the day after the big losing session he was once again playing on Full Tilt's high stake tables. This time Isildur1 took on Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies in heads-up and played his very best poker as he ended up winning $1,3 million in no time. This session must have meant a lot for Isildur1's confidence, and of course the high stakes scene will be much more interesting to follow with a player like Isildur1 who's not afraid of playing sky high stakes against the worlds best poker players.

Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies, the Finnish poker PRO, has been running very good lately. The past few days, one has seen him playing lots of hours at the $2000/$4000 stakes at Full Tilt poker. His best game at the moment is 7-game, which he won over $800,000 from. A lot of the money he have won in 7-game has come from David Benyamine. Ziigmund has also had a few good sessions on the PL Omaha tables. There he has won around $200,000 (most of it from Phil Ivey). In just 33 sessions and 1555 hands Ziigmund has won $1,016,222.

Dream Heads Up
It would be very nice to see a heads up match between Ziigmund and durrrr in a near future. Both of them are running very good at the moment, and both of them play a very aggressive style of poker at times, which means that the pots can be enormous. Let's hope for some durrrr vs Ziigmund action in the next few days!
