Finnish tabloid claims: Ziigmund and Kimi Räikkönen "played for hundreds of thousands"
A Finnish tabloid magazine is claiming that Ilari "Ziigmund" Sahamies and the race car driver, former Formula One World Champion Kimi "Iceman" Räikkönen recently played a huge poker game where hundreds of thousands were on the line. Ziigmund and the Iceman say they did play but just for fun.


The Seiska magazine claims that Räikkönen challenged Ziigmund to the game in Helsinki in June and that the F1 champion first won approximately €500,000 from the pro before losing it back.

Another Finnish tabloid, Iltalehti, got hold of both men for comments and they deny the rumor about the sums in play.

"Sure I play poker, but those claims are not true," Räikkönen is quoted as saying. His agent Riku Kuvaja adds that the stakes were "a few euros" maximum.

Ziigmund's comment is along the same lines. "Nah, it was just for fun. Let's say we played just for matches," Ilari said.

Räikkönen's agent says his client is not particularly experienced in poker. The two men have met before, but this was the first time they played together.

Iltalehti draws rather colorful comparisons between the two men, saying they both have "a close relationship with alcohol" and listing some of their drunken feats: Räikkönen has fallen off from the deck of his boat, taken out his penis at a strip club and physically attacked Michael Schumacher, while Ilari "once lost 1.3 million euros in one day because of a hangover".

Naturally, if Ziigmund had the chance he would probably love to play for "hundreds of thousands" with a rich amateur player like the Iceman, whose reported income in 2008 was 30 million euros - not quite as much as Guy Laliberte's but plenty for a friendly game with a real poker pro.

Hey, i'm new here, thought i would introduce myself here as im a fan of Kimi. Im glad he is enjoying himself in rally, and personally i hope he stay there, continues to gain experience and maybe one day could win a championship.

Btw, Wolfie, are you the same Wolfie that used to post alot on Kimi's rally adventures on Planet-F1 forum before the topic got shut down? I never posted there but always used the thread to keep up with Kimi's progress during a rally weekend. Luckily i have now found where you have gone, if it is you, as i have failed during the last few months to find a forum with as much info as u provided there, untill now that is

Hey Andy and welcome :hug:

I'm the same Wolfie and thanks for the compliment. You will find out that now when he is in WRC the amount of information is amazing and these wonderful people bring in them here all the time :shhh:

But just wait until the next rally, it's going to be fun and hectic, we really follow every stage and it's an experience that is 100 times more thrilling than following a GP.

Hope you like it here :hug:

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I was gutted I had missed the posts where you said you were going before they were deleted. For the last few rallies I have had to make do with mainly live timing and the odd updates on other forums, I'm really looking forward to rally Finland now I can follow it again properly, also the pictures everyones posts on here are amazing as well. So thank you to everyone who takes the time to bring together the info and the pictures, it is definitely appreciated.

Hey Maria, Im from England so it does work out well :), There is very little rally coverage here but what there is is quite good. I make sure to watch the hour show on 'Dave' on each sunday of a rally weekend. They seem to always try to get an interview with Kimi, they show more on track action of Loeb etc, which is to be expected when they are fighting for the championship but normally show Kimi's best bits.
