Isildur1 swings and misses as Ilari Sahamies wins big

Friday, 26 August 2011

Amazingly, Ilari 'The PLO specialist formerly known as Ziigmund' Sahamies is almost out of the $800,000 hole he found himself in after first joining the high stakes games on PokerStars as 'Ilari_FIN'.

He cleaned out Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom in a high stakes heads-up Omaha session to take home almost $500,000.

Blom has been following a pattern of crushing the 6-max high stakes PLO games before losing it all back to a heads-up monster. He did it the other day with Phil 'MrSweets28' Galfond, winning six figures on the ring games and giving it back to arguably the best Omaha heads-up player in the world.

Of course, Sahamies is also arguably the best heads-up Omaha player in the world and things went similarly. He netted $482,000 from Blom and that puts him up over $750,000 in the past 60 hours. He is close to being in the black on PokerStars within just a few days of recovery.
