"Ziigmund" has updated his blog, telling his many fans and followers about his latest endeavors and recent appearance at the WSOPE. Among the headlines is a massive $2 million one-week swing.
Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies is back with a new personal blog post, and true to tradition the writings of the Finnish superstar offer a rare window into the ups and downs of one of the game's most colorful high stakes poker
"Ziigmund" has been involved in some of the juiciest action both live and online over the past few weeks, having spend time in London for the recent WSOP Europe's £10,000 High Roller Heads Up Event as well as in front of the screen at the Full Tilt Poker high stakes tables.
And according to the Finn, this has been far from boring.
"After playing the Million Dollar Cash Game, I won like $800k from Cole South
, and then I won $800k more. And I won $400K from ring games, so it was like a $2 million upswing in one week." Ziigmund
A great result for Sahamies, who nonetheless had to see things turn around soon after busting out in the WSOPE High Roller Event where he lost to Huck Seed.
"I left back to London and played the WSOPE High Roller Heads Up where I won my first two matches against Scott Montgomery and Mike Matusow
. Then I lost to Huck Seed in my last match."
"The same night I played against "durrrr
" in $500/$1,000 PLO and some other games, losing a million so I was fucked and left back home. At home I met my friends and we partied a little bit, so I was on life tilt and played drunk, then sober, but lost another million in a few days. So I went down $2 million in one week!" Sahamies writes in his usual casual style.
Sahamies has already begun grinding his way back into the online leader boards, grabbing a new $500,000 profit last night.
Although swings like the ones described by "Ziigmund" are not too common even for players of his caliber, he is seemingly not overwhelmingly concerned. Railbirds will therefore not have to fear losing sight of him anytime soon.
"I have won the last two days, so I'm fine now. I'm not sure where my next poker trip will be, but let's see. Everything cool." "Ziigmund" concludes.
"Ziigmund"'s winnings for 2010 are so far of $980,000, which is significantly more than regulars like Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond and Di "Urindanger" Dang. The number can however still change drastically, should the Sahamies keep up his trademark breathtaking pace.
