Time for Some Zigmund Fun

Sahamies almost smiling

Ilari Sahamies can bet multiple streets with a wide range of hands, that is why it is so hard to play against him.

The Finnish superstar opened to 130,000 from under the gun and was called by Mikalai Pobal on the button, and Anaras Alekberovas in the big blind.

The flop came {8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Hearts} and Sahamies' 230,000 c-bet was only called by Pobal. The turn came as {7-Hearts} and Sahamies fired for 750,000. Call.

The pot was really big now as the river fell {9-Clubs}, and it didn't get any smaller from here as Sahamies bet a cool one million. Pobal called quickly and then looked visibly distraught when Sahamies declared a straight and tabled ace-six. Sahamies flashed a rare smile as he took over the chip lead from his opponent.
