That didn’t take long at all. It was a mere 3 weeks ago that online poker superhero Phil Galfond was literally cracking jokes on Twitter about dropping $1.4 million at the nosebleeds. The pain, that caused from his lowest point of the year, must be substantially subsided tonight as Galfond closed the books on another monster upswing session, propelling him to accumulating a small fortune in just a matter of days.
According to HighstakesDB, an epic session at the 8-Game Mixed tables on Full Tilt Poker table saw OMGCLayAiken drag a profit of $577.8k. Add that to his previous winning sessions of the week which included a $111k, $142k, $226k and even a $99k session (as reported in the FTP Blog), Galfond has won $1.1 million since Sunday.
At his lowest point in 2014 the Run It Once instructor was down $1.43 million and now, for the entire year, is only a slight loser at -$91k (comparatively, right?)
