Ilari "ziigmund" Sahamies
A spectacular music video that just came out features Finnish star poker pro Ilari "ziigmund" Sahamies and the poker site that sponsors him, Power Poker (PowerPoker.com).
Co-produced by Power Poker, the music video is presented by Pablo Films and Rahina Records. The artist is Uniikki, one of the most renowned rappers in Finland and it also features rappers Spekti and Elastinen "Boys Will Be Boys" ("Pojat On Poikii").
Ziigmund is said to have been intimately involved in the concept for the video, according to Power Poker's VIP Manager, Jacqui Gatt. As the video starts, the Rähinä Records crew spend a night out with poker pro Ilari Sahamies. As the video progresses, with champagne and hot ladies galore, a cavalcade of other celebrities make appearances.
Born on March 3, 1983 in Helsinki, Finland and a friend of Patrik Antonius at an early age, Ilari Sahamies started playing poker when he was 15 years old and in 2001 could be seen playing at the Casino Helsinki beginning at $0.25/$0.50 table stakes. He then first appeared on the celebrity professional poker scene in 2007.
Then 2008 was a powerful year for Power Poker's sponsored pro, when he earned $1.6 million at the poker tables, and between August of 2008 and January of 2009 alone, he won $2.6 million. In January 2009 he took second in the Helsinki Freezeout for €125,000. Mostly a cash tablist, his total winnings from tournaments are $327,000.
He was first sponsored by Full Tilt Poker until he moved over to representing Power Poker. Now you can find him playing on Power Poker cash tables, including at low and medium stakes.
Power Poker is one of the rare poker rooms still accepting players from the United States. If you decide to give them a try, whether that's playing free poker online sitting at their fun money tables, or for real money, you will find out that they are a very decent pick. With a deposit bonus of 110% up to $600 you can't go wrong either, but make sure to use Power Poker bonus code PFF600, or you might end up with nothing.
