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. Before he started playing he tweeted "First online poker session since may. Excited to be playing, but I definitely have some rust to shake off."

But it really didn't look like he had been away from the online poker scene for that long since he dominated the $50/$100 and $25/$50 Pot Limit Omaha tables. In total, he played 4400 hands in 13 hours and ended up as the biggest winner of the day with a $402.1k profit. This is was he tweeted after the session:

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.

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.
