Tags: high stakes, mrsweets28, phil galfond, pokerstars, pot limit omaha
Posted on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 by "T".
Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond had not been playing on PokerStars since May, before the 2012 WSOP kicked off, until he made his long-awaited return on Monday.

Hw could think about giving himself to the luxury of only playing one day for every two months that pass, if each time he played he would do such a profit like $400k!!! If he did this and made to keep with winnings, he would have a medium of $200k per month, not bad for a high stakes reg.

galfond is back- just received the good information that a hacker he hired hacked in a few players pc's so galfond can see the hole cards- and what do you know, immediately "he is back" raking in the profits Wave bla bla don't take this seriously, or take it seriously if you wish, not my problem...anyway nice payday

I don't know what to make of your post pchui.

But I do think it suspect that despite this age of internet insecurity, you have players waging vast sums of money, knowing tht people only need to hack your pc, to view your screen, to know your hole cards.

I think there's a reason why the likes of Gus etc moved to Macau for an extensive period of time.

Live is just far superior. But a lot of players are used to playing 8 tables or more and therefore having a bigger ROI, plus less likely to get bored.

If you're used to 8 tables of big pot action, then suddenly you're sat at one table with cards slowly being dealt out, playing maybe 40 hands an hour...that's hard to go back to.
