Poker Pros in the News

I’ll take a break from my Vietnam postings to post a little something poker related.

First off, thanks to Sebastian on Poker Affiliate Listings for this one. It’s Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies on the Finnish version of Fear Factor. Not for those with squeamish stomachs.

Next up we have Phil Laak who was seriously mangled in an ATV accident. Official count:

Laak: 7 broken bones and a lacerated eye
Tree: Torn bark

Winner: Tree
