ziigmund11According to coinflip.com, in a Friday night appearance on Finnish radio, high-stakes poker pro Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies has some very candid remarks on Full Tilt Poker’s newest high-stakes catalyst Isildur1: Sahamies talked about everything from Isildur1’ identity, to the possibility he is not playing with a full deck of cards.

In what appears to be a comment made in jest, Ziigmund had this to say about Isildur1: “He’s playing 9 tables at once against Patrik, Ivey and durrrr heads up – the guy must be missing a chromosome…”

Sahamies also stated that like most of the poker world he believes Isildur1 to be Swedish poker player Viktor Blom, despite Blom’s denial.

Perhaps the most revealing portion of the interview was Ziigmund’s thoughts on the current high-stakes action taking place at Full Tilt: Ziigmund stated that high-stakes online poker has, “gotten out of hand… I don’t have the roll to play this kind of game, but the kicks are so awesome…” These remarks seem to echo most of the poker world’s thoughts on the recent action that has taken place at these tables –Players having $5 million swings in a matter of days.
