Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies’s $550k blackjack win

Wednesday, 14 April 2010

We all know that Ziigmund, aka Ilari Sahamies, can suffer some brutal swings in his gambling career. Of course, we’re not especially surprised to hear that his most recently-announced six-figure score didn’t come from the Pot-Limit Omaha tables at Full Tilt.

In Ziigmund’s latest blog at Coinflip, he describes how he has won over half a million dollars at blackjack – playing at Betfair – on just two occasions of playing. Last year, he won $350,000 at Betfair’s blackjack tables before making a prop bet to not play blackjack until 2010.

Quit while you’re ahead, well done, Ilari.

Of course, as soon as Finland caught up with the fact that it was 2010 Ilari got back on the tables. This time he won over $200,000 before making another bet that he wouldn’t play blackjack until 2011.
“So nice. I love it,” he concluded.
