Full Tilt Poker - Company LogoIlari "Ziigmund" Sahamies is off to a great start on Full Tilt Poker in 2010, having banked just over $1.7 million dollars in profits over the first 28 days of January.

"Ziigmund", who was the fifth largest winner on Full Tilt Poker for all of 2009 (+$3.06 million dollars), has made a total of $1,709,762.80 over 8,397 tracked hands in January.

A great deal of Ziigmund's January profits came from fellow Finn Patrik Antonius, who has lost nearly a million dollars to start the year. Antonius was the biggest winner on Full Tilt Poker in 2009, making just short of $9 million dollars on the year.

Other players who are having strong starts to the year on Full Tilt Poker include:

Gus Hansen, +$1.29 million dollars
"Urindanger", +$1.15 million dollars
Cole South, +$1.02 million dollars
David Oppenheim, +$803k

Di "Urindanger" Dang's brother, Hac "trex313" Dang, has also had a decent start to the year, banking just under $300k over 5,165 tracked hands.


As mentioned, Patrik Antonius has gotten 2010 off to an uncharacteristically slow start, dropping a total of $956k over 12,568 tracked hands.

Other players who have gotten off to a slow start so far in 2010 on FTP include:

Richard Ashby, -$828k
"PixKim", -$631k
"howisitfeellike", -$590k
"Browndog19", -$525k


In other news, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Patrik Antonius have inched a bit closer to completing the "durrrr Challenge".

A total of 31,912 of the required 50,000 hands have now been played, with "durrrr" currently out in front by a little over $1.07 million dollars.

I have a feeling that these two will finish up sometime during the summer..
