It was a great day at the tables for Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond yesterday as he got down to some serious grinding, putting in 8,000 hands of $50/$100 6 max PLO across 12 hours and 54 sessions of play.
It was a busy day for the $50/$100 tables with an abundance of familiar names spread across over a dozen tables with the likes of refaelamit, gavz101, Ilari FIN, Vaga_Lion, Skjervøy, $tinger88, Jeans89, socutiesf, pokrparty and frankly too many others to mention all vying for a piece of the pie at PokerStars.
However, it was Galfond who ended the day head and shoulders above the rest with his closest rival for the day GARFIELD25 taking $153k. Galfond also showed that he is prepared to grind it out to reap the rewards as he also put in the highest volume of anyone playing highstakes yesterday (and is continuing in the same vein today).
It was also another good day for the in form and current 2011 PokerStars biggest winner Rafi "refaelamit" Amit who bagged another six figure score, winning $135k - Amit is also currently this months biggest winner showing a total profit of $938k at PokerStars for September, moving ahead of Ilari FIN who dropped $191k in the ring games yesterday. In fact the only player to fair worse the Ilari FIN was the one time PokerStars leading money winner for 2011 Skjervøy who lost $235k.
Over at PartyPoker the biggest winner was Kanu7 who won just short of $20k at $25/$50 NLHE while the biggest loser was callmeHANKy who lost a comparatively hefty $62k at the same limits.
