Since these haven't been mentioned yet, I'm going to translate some of the most golden bits of Ziig's finnish blog (at www.pokerisivut.com
Ziigmund on Germany:
"Me and Juha Helppi had enough time to go to Dortmund, where the service was awful, the casino was terrible and the people were rude... As Seppo Räty (a Finnish javelin thrower) put it: Germany is a **** country."
Ziigmund on David Benyamine:
"French people are fat. Or at least that David guy is."
Ziigmund on Juha Helppi:
"The guy is mentally 75 years old, but his appearance is like a 45 year old's. The only thing that makes him look younger is the Interpoker clothes he wears 24/7."
Ziig promised to record some PLO videos, and when they were late he posted this:
"My internet poker's been going down, up and back down again... in other words, horrible SWINGS... -300k +300k -200 +400... etc. yeah... but about those videos, they're on their way. so just wait with your dicks hard and your pussies wet for my videos for a little longer... and for those 90 percent of you who took this as an insult, don't be so angry."
Ziig on his bankroll management:
"I was playing in the tv show The Game in London, and in the end I was up nicely, more than any other player there. But the second I came back to Finland, my rolls were all around Full Tilt."
Ziig on Martin de Knijff (swedish poker pro):
"No limit with 100/200 blinds really isn't my thing... but as long as Martin de Knijff is playing too, we should all be fine."
Also, here is a link to a video of Ziig wrestling in Vienna before the EURO 2008 finals: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_id2c...ilariblogi.php
And a video of Ilari drinking tequila, balla style (snorting the salt in his nose and squeezing lemon juice into his eyes):http://www.pokerisivut.com/illutequila.php
PS. Ziigmund is also the reigning finnish champion in water sliding.
