Great week for Galfond

Great week for Galfond

Saturday, 10 March 2012

Last week we brought news that Phil Galfond’s New York apartment was up for sale and that he was just about to return to the high stakes online games from his new base in Canada.

MrSweets28 has indeed hit the online tables, and in some style, proving to be the week’s biggest online winner after booking a profit of $767k in 118 sessions at PokerStars. Despite being on the wrong end of Galfond’s great week, Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom was still up on the week just over a quarter of a million dollars. Other big winners at the PokerStars tables included the mysterious RaiseOnce (up $494k) and Gavin Cochrane (up $250k).

MaiseE topped the list of losers after dropping almost $469k on the week. Despite being down $340k this week, Jens Kyllonen still tops the year’s big winners. The Finn is up over $1.5m on the year.
