Full Tilt Poker 7-Game Sees Bulk Of Action As Ziigmund Banks $1 Million ProfitOctober 29, 2009 8:00 am
The 7-Game Poker mix offered on Full Tilt Poker has become a popular choice amongst high stakes professionals to the extent that it continues attracting a growing proportion of the action on the site.
For those of you not familiar with this particular form of poker, 7 Game Poker is simply a combination of seven of the most popular poker games played in rotation over ten rounds. The seven games included are:
– Holdem—Fixed Limit
– Seven Card Stud High/Low
– Omaha High/Low
– Seven Card Stud
– No Limit Texas Holdem
– Pot Limit Omaha
Last night was testimony to the growing popularity of the 7-Game as many of the top pros turned out for a chance to outshine their fellow professionals across the virtual felts. Some of the players in on the action at Full Tilt included Di “Urindanger” Dang up $93k, Griffin up $77k, Chau Giang up $47k, Matt Hawrilenko up $26k, Oppenheim down $33k and Daniel “FakeSky” Alaei down $188k.
However, one player’s tally outshone all the rest by quite a margin and it was none other than “Ziigmund,” the super aggressive online player from Finland. Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies managed to notch up an impressive $1.01 million profit, $816,000 of which derived from playing and dominating the 7-Game bringing his year’s profit to $1.8 million.
Where there are winners so must their be losers and French pro David Benyamine seems to be having a bit of difficulty getting to grips with the 7-Game which cost him a whooping $681,000 last night and $1.9 million for the year so far.
Other notable pros at Full Tilt lodging wins at the 7-Game were Tom Dwan up $278k whilst Phil Ivey earned $136k although he later dropped $200,000 at PLO for a $64,000 loss on the night.
