Ziigmund Crushes 7-Game High Stakes for $1.1m

Thursday, 29 October 2009

Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies doubled his 2009 winnings last night, destroying the 7-game high-stakes tables on Full Tilt for over a million dollars; most of that coming from the pockets of Brian Hastings and David Benyamine.

Benyamine and Hastings, both of course very capable players, were on the wrong side of things last night as they lost $1,100,000 between them with almost $700k coming from Benyamine’s bankroll.

Tom Dwan also took a shot, winning over a quarter of a million dollars and supplementing it with some Omaha winnings to put him in third place behind Phil Ivey for 2009 earnings.
