Sundays is a special day at Power Poker, and it's not because it's the day of rest. Far from it, in fact. Because Sundays are the days that poker pro player Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies will be giving players a chance to beat him out of a $2,000 bankroll.
The promotion is called Sick Ziigmund Sundays and it is an opportunity for those players without the steel nerve or bankroll to back it up the chance play a game of poker, Pot Limit Omaha poker to be precise, that's as fierce and challenging as any high stakes (or as Power Poker puts it) "nosebleed stakes" tables. The stakes at Sick Ziigmund Sundays are only $0.50/$1. There aren't many poker sites online right now where you can win a $2,000 bankroll at one fifty-cent/one-dollar game of PLO.
Sick Ziigmund Sundays starts on Sunday, September 19, 2010 at Power Poker. Ilari Sahamies promises to be playing at that table for at least 4 hours on that day and each Sunday thereafter. Since this is not an online poker tournament but rather a cash game, players can come and go, sitting in and leaving, as they see fit.
In order to enter Power Poker's Sick Ziigmund Sundays, just go to the Power Poker lobby and click the Ring Game tab. Then click the Omaha Tab. There, in the menu that appears, you'll see the appropriate tables highlighted in blue with the words (of course): "Sick Ziigmund Sundays".
Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies is the bald-headed 27-year-old Helsinki, Finland poker sensation also known for his fierce competitiveness in other arenas as well, including diving, basketball, soccer, wrestling, and billiards. It was during that latter activity where he met fellow poker sensation Patrik Antonius. Sahamies has been playing poker since 15. Starting in 2001 in real casinos at the $0.25/$0.50 level he quickly advanced to winning $1.6 million in 2008 and ending the year with a $2.6 million profit.
