OMGClayAIken was very active at the tables participating in heads up PLO matches against Gus Hansen, Van Marcus and Scott “URnotINdanger2” Palmer, as well as the 2-7 draw games. Essentially, no one could stop Galfond on his way to booking his impressive $584,754 in 2,195 hands.

Both Galfond and Hansen turned their straights but Galfond’s earned him $98,393
Less than two months ago, Galfond posted a blog on BlueFire Poker talking about his recent downswing mainly due to the expensive learning curve of transitioning into the 2-7 draw games on Full Tilt. In his blog Galfond stated, “the price I've paid to begin learning these games has been pretty steep.” Well, I think it’s safe to say that those lessons are paying off.
In March alone, Galfond has made over $1.67 million dollars in the draw games leading the pack in that category. Other big winners in the draw games have been David Oppenheim ($653,070), bixiu ($568,976) and Abe “EazyPeazy” Mosseri ($487,098). The three biggest donators in the draw games so far in March have been: Gus Hansen (-$1,156,898), durrrr (-$737,608) and fishosaurusREX (-$669,674).
