Ilari Sahamies has pulled a Viktor Blom-style run in the last few days with a storming profit of more than $1 million.
On a run that even “Isildur1” would be proud of, the volatile Finn has crushed the $200/$400 games on PokerStars since Monday and now sits on a total profit of $1,030,543. The change in fortune is a dramatic one as Sahamies had been stuck near the top of the biggest loser chart for most of the year with a total deficit of $1.4 million. However, his run over the last 72 hours has almost redressed the balance and given him a renewed sense of enthusiasm it seems. Indeed, among those feeling his wrath was “patpatman”. The unknown grinder lost three big pots to Sahamies yesterday with the largest - $205,900 – being won when Ilari made a flush on the river. Also running badly in the last 24 hours has been two of the year’s most consistent winners: Ben “Ben86” Tollerene and Jens “Jeans89” Kyllonen. The former dropped $193,000, while the latter saw $414,000 disappear from their bankroll. Whether Ilari’s run will continue throughout the rest of the week remains t be seen but whatever the outcome it’s likely to mean a whole heap of high stakes action in the coming days.
