After the Black Friday Finnish players have been dominating the online high-stakes cash games on Full Tilt Poker, and Patrik Antonius, Jens "Ingenious89" Kyllönen and Jani Vilmunen have netted almost $3M combined profit.
In addition to Finns, players like Rui Cao (+$210K), NoPasaran (+$200K) and "DrugsOrMe" (+$155K) have been making good profit after the Black Friday.
Players who have not done so good are instead Andreas "skjervoy" Torbergsen (-$1,11M), "FinnishNightmre" (-$235K) and Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies (-$250K).
Sahamies, however, is playing a wild session against Gus Hansen as I am writing this at Full Tilt and he is up a little over $250K already against The Great Dane.
Ziigmund: are you coming back?
Gus Hansen: Ziigmund please dont go broke – you are such a talented player – at least in your own mind
Gus Hansen: funny that I play Ziigmund – and I am in Helsinki
Ziigmund: what u r doing here
Gus Hansen: European championship in squash
Gus Hansen: in Espoo
