Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies dominated the high stakes games on Full Tilt Poker over the past week, making in excess of $2.1 million.

For the month of March, "Ziigmund" is up around $2.77 million over 12,728 tracked hands. This is far ahead of the next most profitable cash game player on FTP in March, which is Di "Urindanger" Dang (+1.54 million).

Thanks to his $2 million+ in profits over the past 7 days, "Ziigmund" is now also the most profitable player on Full Tilt Poker for all of 2010. Here is the top five for 2010, as of this moment:

"Ziigmund" +3.0 million
"PostFlopAction" +2.2 million
"Urindanger" +2.1 million
"durrrr" +1.9 million
"NEKOTYAN" +1.9 million

Since the beginning of 2009, "Ziigmund" is up over $6 million on Full Tilt Poker over a total of 138k+ tracked hands. Only one player has made more money on the site during that time, and that is Phil Ivey (+6.5 million).

Since the beginning of 2008, "Ziigmund" has made about $7.67 million on FTP.


A great deal of Ziigmund's profits over the past 7 days came from the bankroll of Tom "durrrr" Dwan. The two players waged a couple of late night wars over the past week, with "Ziigmund" coming out on top each time. Dwan suffered losses of over $1.5 million this past week thanks to "Ziigmund", but "durrrr" is still up over $1.9 million for the month.

"Ziigmund" managed to make a staggering $414.64 for every hand that he played from March 20th to March 26th - not bad for a week's work.
