After a strenuous battle at the poker table and despite being down hundreds of thousands in the high stake games on PokerStars this year, Sahamies finally stood out as an epitome of tenacity and perseverance by winning $324k last night.
Making his way through 1,592 hands of $50/$100 to $100/$200 PLO, the player finally claimed victory at the poker table and gave a crushing defeat to his rivals. The victory was indeed a tough one as Sahamies had to battle a row of online pros like, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy, Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond, Ben “Ben86” Tollerene and Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky in order to make his way to the title.
The poker star played with brilliance and grabbed the most coveted pot of the night after claiming the $99k monster off Galfond. The evening emerged as a lucky one for Sahamies as he consistently took the lead at the poker table and kept on blazing through set over set.
Earlier this year, the player was down a million and after the last night’s victory, he is now $362k down on PokerStars. Considering his former station, the present one is certainly better. Last night’s dramatic win has indubitably worked wonders for the player and has also allowed him a $61k profit.
Alexey “LuckyGump” Makarov emerged as the other big winner last night after he grabbed an amount as huge as $99k and finished second at the poker table.
David “Deldar182” Eldar finished well at the poker table earning an amount of $66k. Another player who finished up decently at the poker table last night was Isaac “philivey2694” Haxton who cashed in for $83k.
Ben “Sauce123” Sulsky saw a terrible dip last night and lost a hefty $118k in the high stake games. Apart from Ben Sulsky, the list of notable losers include Isildur1 (-$96k), Ben86 (-$88k) and Ronny “1-ronnyr3” Kaiser (-$74k).
