As ever you can never tell from one day to the next how Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies if going to fare at the virtual felt - one thing you can be pretty sure of though is that he will either be one of the days big winners or big losers, and very rarely anything in between. Yesterday was no exception and this time it was very good news for the aggressive Finn as he topped the winners list with a massive $367k win at the PLO tables.
$200/$400 PLO is a pretty huge game and one that we are not so used to seeing these days, with more of the action played at the $50/$100 and $100/$200 stakes. Ilari took full advantage of the bigger games, crushing Phisherman36 in particular for well over $200k as well as putting dents in the rolls of Terken89 and 0Human0. In just over 1000 hands of play across three tables in under four hours of play yesterday afternoon Ilari FIN won over $380k at the $200/$400 PLO tables, winning on all three tables. The only other winner at these stakes was patpatman who only managed a $7.5k win playing $200/$400.
Most of Ilari's wins came heads up against Phisherman36 with the remainder short handed. Here are his biggest two hands of the sessions;
Ilari's biggest hand didn't even go to showdown as Phisherman36 is forced to fold on the river after making an attempt to steal the pot only to be re-raised before mucking his hand - $134k pot
Phisherman36 thinks he spots weakness on the river and attempts to steal the pot after Ilari checks with the nuts - $91.5k pot
The biggest pot of the day however went to Phisherman36 in the same match;
Cooler for Ilari as his flopped top set is outdrawn after the money goes in by Phiserman36's turned nut flush - $137.6k pot
Although Ilari was the only big winner at the higher stakes we did have another six figure winner in the shape of Slovenian Pro Matej "mtvdeuem" Cepon who turned in a $124k wn at the $50/$100 PLO tables yesterday playing the likes of EireAbu (how had a rare losing day, dropping $24.6k), Berndsen12 (who continued his good week, winning a further $46.7k) and EDWARDHOPPER.
