Ilari Sahamies Up $2.3 Million Dollars Today

Some of the biggest names in poker are continuing to wage war on Thanksgiving Day, opting to pass on the turkey and football in favor of some $500/$1000 Pot Limit Omaha.

Earlier this morning, Tom "durrrr" Dwan reappeared on Full Tilt Poker and continued his battle with "Isildur1".

Dwan got off to a good start, winning over $500k in just a short period of time.

Over the course of the evening though, "Isildur1" started to get the best of Dwan once again, leaving "durrrr" with a loss of around $125k by the time that Dwan's evening was over. Not a large loss by any means (by Dwan's standards, of course), but surely a demoralizing one for a player that is desperately looking to turn things around.

According to, Dwan is now down approximately $6.5 million dollars on Full Tilt Poker in the month of November.

After finishing his session with Tom Dwan, "Isildur1" turned his attention to Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies.

"Ziigmund" got the best of "Isildur1" in their short battle, as Sahamies managed to accumulate a stack of well over a million dollars on one of the tables that they were playing at. The two ultra-aggressive players clashed in a number of big pots, with "Ziigmund" winning the majority of them. The battle ended suddenly, with Sahamies walking away as a big winner.

"Ziigmund" continued his hot streak during a battle with Patrik Antonius that just concluded a few minutes ago.

By the time that the two had finished their match, "Ziigmund" was sitting with a total profit of $2.35 million over the past 24 hours, while Antonius had lost nearly $2.7 million.

Despite his dreadful Thanksgiving Day performance on Full Tilt, Antonius is still up (though only slightly) in November. For all of 2009, Antonius is currently up around $6.7 million dollars.

"Ziigmund", on the other hand, is now up about $2.7 million dollars in November, and $6.2 million dollars for all of 2009.

On the opposite side of things, Tom "durrrr" Dwan is now down close to $7 million dollars on Full Tilt Poker in 2009, while Gus Hansen is down about $5.8 million.
