It’s been a rough start to the month of September for Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies .The online high-stakes cash game regular has been one of the biggest losers in the past week — dropping more than $500,000 to the likes of Cole South and Brian Hastings .At $500-$1,000 pot-limit Omaha on Full Tilt Poker this past Thursday, Sahamies had the button and bet $3,000. South was in the big blind, and he three-bet to $9,000. Sahamies called. The flop came Q J J , and South continued with $13,000.Sahamies called, and the turn brought the 8 . South bet $36,000, and Sahamies called once again. The 7 fell on the river, and South fired a massive $106,000. Sahamies raised about $40,000 more, enough to put his opponent all in. South made the call and exposed the Q Q 10 9 for queens full. Sahamies mucked the inferior Q J 9 8 . South raked in the $410,992 cooler.The second thorn in the side of Sahamies has been Hastings. Hastings has been one of the biggest winners so far in September, winning more than $600,000.At $300-$600 pot-limit Omaha on Full Tilt Poker, Sahamies had the button and bet $1,800. Brian Hastings was in the big blind, and he three-bet to $5,400. Sahamies called. The flop came A 6 3 , and Hastings led out for $7,800.Sahamies called, and the turn brought the 6 . Hastings bet $18,600, and his Finnish opponent called once again. The 4 fell on the river, and Hastings checked. Sahamies bet $59,400. Hastings check-raised all in for $78,296 total. Sahamies folded for less than $20,000 more, and Hastings scooped the $182,400 pot without a showdown.Although on Tuesday Sahamies was able to get some of the money he lost to Hastings back, the battle between the two online phenoms has been one sided over the past seven days.Another one of the biggest winners over the past week, as well as in the month of August, was Daniel “jungleman12” Cates . Cates began competing in the second instalement of the Durrrr Challenge last month.With a profit of $692,400.50 after just 6,820 hands in the challenge against Tom “durrrr” Dwan , Cates added to his recent winning streak by taking more than $150,000 off of Patrik Antonius in a brief heads-up match this past week.
