Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies has kept a low profile throughout most of the year, only making a handful of sporadic appearances. Now it seems as if the Finn is on his way back.
Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies has been spiraling downwards since last autumn in a remarkably bad run that culminated with losses of around $2 million throughout 2010.
Since then, "Ziigmund" has openly been airing his frustration with his performances at the felt, hinting over and over again that he may be on his way to taking a break from poker altogether.
The day before yesterday, Sahamies nonetheless made a brief return to the high stakes
tables on Full Tilt Poker, losing around $44,000 in a variation of PLO games at different stakes.
The loss adds to a total of almost $160,000 dropped by Sahamies since January 1st, leaving "Ziigmund" where he left last year with another string of bad results.
The comeback was, however, followed up by another cameo last night, and here the PowerPoker
pro managed to bag his first positive score in a while, as he ended a $500/$1,000 PLO CAP session in a $30,000 profit.
"Ziigmund" has according to Highstakesdb.com now played a total of 4173 hands spread over 44 sessions since New Year, posting an overall loss of $125,939.
Known for his somewhat reckless style and aggressive play, $125,000 isn't much for the troubled PLO expert and much can therefore still happen if he decides to continue in the nosebleed games.
In other high stakes news, Gus Hansen
last night continued his winter heater, this time earning almost $120,000 from encounters with among others Tom "durrrr
Hansen is now up $2.1 million for the year, while Dwan continues to struggle with a $435,000 deficit.
