Our favourite hyper-aggressive player is back in the money as Viktor “Isildur1” Blom re-strategises on the lower stakes tables and comes back to the high stakes games with a bang. However, another popular player, Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond was on the losing end of the high stakes games after he lost out to “Denoking”.
Denoking was already $83,000 to the good after a few hands on the $400/$800 No Limit Hold’em 6-max ring games before he began the dismantling of Galfond to ramp up a $619,948 profit.
Galfond was down on his luck playing the $300/$600 tables No Limit Hold’em heads-up games versus the powerhouse unknown “Denoking”. Both players were engrossed in the action for almost four hours with little getting in between them. “Denoking” had the better of Galfond to begin with, but the Omaha expert came back to even things back up winning over $180,000 in a few short exchanges. However, Galfond played into a hand that saw “Denoking” suck out on Galfond to leave him damaged and back in the red. The players ended up thrashing it out from one session to two sessions simultaneously and Galfond ended up being smashed for $316k in one session and $217k in the other totalling a massive plus half a million deficit from heads-up play.
Similarily to “Denoking”, Galfond went into the heads-up match already well in the green with a profit that had easily outshone his foe. Over the Deuce to Seven Triple Draw games Galfond was up over $340k, but that profit was short lived once Galfond bumped into the on form “Denoking”. Much of Galfond’s winnings were courtesy of inflicting some big beats on Gus Hansen, who finished up with a $383,042 loss for the day while Galfond finished with a $294,805 loss. Alex “Alexonmoon” Luneau, the French Triple Draw expert, was also winning on the Triple Draw tables and took down a massive $229,456 win.
As for Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, he was back in the action and looking good for it too. Blom began very slow, which is probably a good thing as when he starts on an upswing he usually ends up writing off his winnings and finishing up with a big loss. He literally handed over $300k to Kyle “KPR16″ Ray and another $100k went over to Dan “cottonseed1” Hendon all on the $2,000/$4,000 Fixed Limit Omaha games.
Blom must have gone for a breather, and what a breather that was as he came back to wipe the tables clean in a huge upswing that saw him write off his almost half a million in morning losses and finish the day a $153,588 winner.
