LarsLuzak dominates at Full Tilt Poker

Tuesday, 17 February 2009

When people think of “great Finnish poker player” they think of Patrik Antonius, Ziigmund, or Juha Helppi. One man who rarely comes to mind despite being held in high esteem by most pros is Sami “LarsLuzak” Kelopuro.

However, he made a net profit of over $2,000,000 in just 72 hours at Full Tilt Poker last week, beginning by crushing the NLHE and mixed HA games before continuing the run against the Phils – Ivey and Galfond, stiff competition.

He beat on fellow Finns Ziigmund and Antonius, hitting flop after flop, catching cards where he needed them and outplaying the both two. Many people believe Kelopuro to be one of the most fearless and aggressive NLHE players online and with results like this to back them up, we’re inclined to agree!
Furthermore, Ivey is back in contention – having been on something of a cold streak he recently made just under $700k to bring him back in the zone. Good practise for when he plays Dwan.

Next week we’ll be bringing you blow-by-blow updates of Dwan vs Antonius including the biggest pots, the sickest bluffs and the exact results after each session.
