Posted on 14 October 2011 by "T".

Lately there have been rumors that Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies has gained a lot of weight during the summer. The Finnish tabloid magazine Seiska even published one of Ziigmund's Facebook profile pictures on its website a while ago, a picture which confirmed that Ziigmund indeed had gained some weight. However, according to the magazine, Ziigmund's girlfriend Elina doesn't seem too bothered with his rounded appearance.

This is what an anonymous person wrote on Seiska's website a while ago...
"Ilari knows how to make fun of himself. He calls himself ´Fat roe sack´ and is very descriptive about his unhealthy and fattening diet"

After Sunday's loss against Daniel Negreanu it didn't take long before Viktor "Isildur1" Blom was back on the nosebleed tables as he took on the Finnish poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies in three $25/$50 PLO matches. It only took Isildur1 745 hands to win $106,882 from Ziigmund. It was a well-needed win for the Swede who has lost some serious cash this year.

According to Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies latest blog update, it seems like he hasn't lost as much money as many poker sites have claimed in the past few months. We have heard of figures between 2-5 million dollars, but according to Ziigmund, who partly admits that he has lost a lot of money because of playing bad, he has lost about $1 million dollars. If this is true, it probably means that Ziigmund has been successful in different live games and maybe he's also playing with fake aliases on different poker sites?

"This year hasnt been as good it should be,I think Im down like a million...and Gus...dont say I should be more losing.I think I have been unlucky but I have played very bad hangover...and tilting I take small break and come back to smaller games...I try :) Lets see what happens," Ziigmund writes in his latest blog update.

After summarizing last week's high stakes games, Gus Hansen is the biggest winner once again. Gus won $425k last week and is now up almost $1.9 million dollars in the past 30 days. We can only hope that his winning streak ain't over yet - assuming that he wants to win back the millions he has lost in the past few years.

Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies lost almost $640,000 last week, and once again he ended up being the biggest losers online. Many of his fans are now claiming that he's running out of money. Let's hope that those rumors are false because the high stakes scene needs Ilari Sahamies!

The Finnish poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies started 2010 with a few winning sessions and it looked very good for a while. But suddenly the poker gods turned against him and since then he has lost big almost every single month.

Last night Ziigmund took on Daniel "jungleman12" Cates in Pot Limit Omaha session, which only lasted 300 hands. Ziigmund lost $300,000 in this session and couldn't hold back his anger after they stopped playing. This is what he wrote in the chat.

The danish poker pro Gus Hansen has really been running good at Full Tilt's nosebleed tables in the past few weeks. Yesterday, he took on the finnish poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and DrugsOrMe in a $500/$1000 PLO Cap game.

Both and Ziigmund and DrugsOrMe left the table a few hours later with six-figure losses. After this Gus Hansen won $55k in a shorter session of 7-game poker. Gus has won over $2 million in the last four weeks, now he "only" needs to win another $1.5 million before he's even for the year.

Is Gus Hansen's losing streak finally over!? Well, that's what many think after seeing him do extremely well last week at Full Tilt's nosebleed tables. It was a new Gus Hansen we got to see, a Gus Hansen who did few mistakes and never went on tilt. Gus couldn't complain about any bad beats either. The poker gods simply were on his side (for once) and there were never any doubts whatsoever that he would become anything else than the biggest winner online.

It will be interesting to see if Gus Hansen can keep up the good game this week as well. He needs to win big almost every week from now if he wants to win back all the millions of dollars he has lost over the past few year. Well, nothing is impossible in the poker world.

About a week ago, it almost looked like the finnish poker pro Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies' losing streak had come to an end after a few winning sessions. However, it didn't take long before he started to lose big again. $311,000 is how much Ziigmund lost last week, which means that he has lost almost $1.7 million in October. One of the players who managed to win big against Ziigmund was harrington23. In one of the sessions between these two, Ziigmund was so tilted and frustrated that he decided not to continue playing.

We are getting quite used to watching, hearing and reading about Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies high stakes games (live and online) against some of the world's best poker players. It's not a secret that he has made himself a name and a fortune from playing this high for such a long time.

However, we all know that many things in life becomes routine and just an ordinary day after some time. This applies even to the most famous and rich poker players, who have everything an ordinary person could ever dream of.

Isildur1's 2009

Posted on 05 January 2010 by "T".

The hottest poker news of 2009 were mostly about one player, Isildur1 from Sweden. Isildur1 came from nowhere and won almost $6 millions in a couple of weeks and then lost it all + another $1.5 million in just a few days. After that, Isildur1 had another upswing and was plus for a day or two before he started losing again. Even though Isildur1 lost so much money, many of the world's best poker players praised the young Swede by saying that he is an outstanding poker player who just needs to avoid playing such long sessions and that he should stop playing PL Omaha and stick to NL Holdem instead.

The big scandal
Isildur1 made many poker players even richer when his game wasn't at its best. For example, he lost about $4 million dollars in one single session to Brian Hastings, and also a few more millions to Brian Townsend, Cole South, Illari Sahamies, Phil Ivey etc. Shortly after this, Isildur1 disappeared from the high stakes scene and it seemed like it could take long before we heard about the unknown swede again. However, it didn't take long before Isildur1 once again was in the headlines as a big scandal was about to be revealed. It all started after that Brian Townsend got his red pro status removed by Full Tilt for a month because he had used a non-allowed poker program to collect data from the games against Isiludr1. And according to different rumors, Townsend had shared this information with Cole South and Hastings. However, neither of them got punished in any kind of way by Full Tilt. After that Isildur1 got to know about this, he said that he will ask Full Tilt to give back some of the money he had lost, and that he probably wouldn't play at Full Tilt anymore.

The return of Isildur1

After that Isildur1 went from 6 million dollars plus to 1,5 million minus, no one thought that he would be able to play at the higher stakes again. Many were even speculating in that he was broke. However, it didn't take long before Isildur1 returned...

In the past few days, he has been playing a lot of PLO at the $300/$600 & $500/$1000 stakes at Full Tilt poker. Isildur1's game hasn't changed a bit since the tilt sessions. In other words - it's still the same kind of roller coaster poker as he played before. Well, something has changed, and that is that everyone wants to play against him.

A very successful comeback
Isildur1 is doing very, very well and he has went from 1,5 million minus to about $2 million plus. A lot of this money comes from Ziigmund, Brian Townsend and durrrr. The luck has really been on Isildur1's side in the past few days. For example, he flopped top set versus bottom set against Townsend and won $720,000. In another pot, Ziigmund made a move at the wrong time and was 4-1 underdog when Isildur1 called his all in. Already on the turn, Ziigmund's chances of winning the pot were gone and Isildur1 just had to wait for the river card before the pot of $788,000 was his.

Posted on 02 December 2009 by "T".

On Tuesday night, Isildur1 and Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies were once again playing against each other. In the previous heads-up match, Ziigmund crushed Isildur1 and won around $1,5 million in just 600 hands. This time was no different than the previous session as Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies once again dominated and got the Swede on tilt. After 1123 hands, Isildur1 had lost a bit more than a million and Ziigmund decided to call it a day. Ziigmund's decision to stop for the day just made the Swede even more frustrated and angry.

A very tired, frustrated and angry Isildur1 started to make fun of Ziigmund in the poker chat by writing stuff like "How can you stop playing when you are winning and I almost can't keep my eyes open". Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies didn't let Isildur1's talk get to him, and he left the table $1 million richer. Isildur1, however, had no plans on stopping after this as he started playing against Tom "durrr" Dwan, Cole South and Patrik Antonius instead. Isildur1 continued playing bad the rest of the night, and after he had lost about $2,7 million, he finally gave up and went to sleep.

Ilari Sahamies "Ziigmund", the Finnish poker pro is known to be a so called trash-talker in the chat on the poker tables on the higher limits.
