Galfond Becomes Third Player to Win $10 Million on FTP (Full Tilt Poker)

We turn our attention to the legendary Phil ?OMGClayAiken? Galfond, who became just the third person ? the others are Phil Ivey and Patrik Antonius ? to surpass $10 million in winnings on FTP dating back to 2007.

Galfond won $632,133 in 3,569 hands over 32 sessions this week, which was slightly behind Ben ?Bttech86? Tollerene (+$662,276 in 44 sessions/5,045 hands) and Kyle ?cottonseed1? Hendon (+$638,698 in 9 sessions/878 hands). Other big winners included Tom ?durrrr? Dwan (+$325,296 in 35 sessions/2,155 hands) and Niki Jedlicka (+$275,466 in 57 sessions/3,618 hands) on Full Tilt Poker, and Vladimir ?GVOZDIKA55? Shchemelev (+$294,824 in 29 sessions/6,919) on PokerStars.

On the flip side, the year?s biggest winner, Alexander ?PostFlopAction? Kostritsyn, had a rare bad week, dropping $585,240 in 4,243 hands over 83 sessions ? enough to make him the week?s biggest loser. Not too far behind was ?Samrostan? (-$541,201 in 45 sessions/4,634 hands) on FTP and ?MIKMIC888? (-$425,060 in 8 sessions/4,150 hands) on PokerStars.
