It’s no secret in the online poker world that players from Scandinavia are among the best out there. Whether it’s because they have long, long winters to practice the game or whether it is has to do with their cool veneer, the fact of the matter is that players such as Patrik Antonius and Ilari Sahamies are always making the news. But this week, Scandinavians broke even at Full Tilt Poker when one player won BIG and another crashed and burned. Antonius was in full force in his $300/$600 PLO games, earning himself a staggering $1.1 million in just over 5,000 hands. Unfortunately, all that glory was wasted when Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies lost nearly a million dollars in that same time period! Guess the Finns are going to have to go back to the drawing board to figure out how to save their poker national pride…
