Phil Galfond came out on top of the nosebleed Full Tilt cash games yesterday after positively grinding on the $2k/$4k Deuce to Seven Triple Draw tables.
That win made “OMGClayAiken” the top profit for the day, and it was all courtesy of a heads-up game that saw “Kagome Kagome” and the hip US poker superstar lock horns on the virtual felts once again. Galfond ended up smashing the game for exactly $157,205 leaving “Kagome Kagome” with a mountain to climb for the rest of the day. Though for Galfond it’s been a great week as he’s been proving his worth on the Triple Draw tables raking in $450,000 for his troubles.
Yesterday’s Top 5 Biggest Online Profits
1st “OMGClayAiken” – $157,205
2nd “mikki696” – $115,332
3rd “WCGRider” – $102,199
4th “cottonseed1” – $78,674
5th “RagingHeart” – $69,584
More action was spilling out onto the tables in the Pot Limit Omaha games with “mikki696” taking down the second largest win of the day. It was a six figure rampage that lasted just 4.5 hours in which he played 30 sessions on the $200/$400 shallow stack options. His victims included Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, Ben “Bttech86” Tollerene, Hac “trex313” Dang, “Schoitl”, and “psychobenny”.
One the big names amongst that list of high stakes superstars, Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, was on yet another downswing. It was a good day to begin with as he fired home $50,000 playing Deuce to Seven Triple Draw against 2013’s most successful online Russian player Alexander “PostflopAction” Kostritsyn. However, as Blom wandered over to the Pot Limit Omaha and Fixed Limit Omaha High/Low games he started to plummet, which eventually sent him back to the 2-7 tables. Nonetheless, a second visit wasn’t the cure as he just continued to leak cash all over the shop leaving him nursing yet another six figure loss this time to the tune of $179,840.

It was the last hour’s play that was the real burner for the Swede when he let more than $140,000 to slip through his fingers. $79,000 of that he seemed to just literally hand over to Dan “cottonseed1” Hendon in a Fixed Limit Omaha High/Low session that allowed Hendon to finish up as the day’s fourth big winner. Blom then helped “Kagome Kagome” recover some early Triple Draw losses versus Galfond by giving away another $48,000 on the same Triple Draw tables “Kagome Kagome” made those losses.
Finally, Doug “WCGRider” Polk came out as the third big profit maker for the day as he took $102,199 from the 100/$200 Heads-Up No Limit Hold’em challenge, that has been making the online poker news headlines in a match where he has been playing versus Ben “Sauce1234″ Sulsky. Right now Polk is around the $600,000 profit region after a little shy of 3,600 hands played so far, but the match won’t end until 15,000 hands have been grinded through the felts, so watch out for more exciting updates.
