High Stakes Rail – Galfond wins $300k this week

Date:

Phil “togel online ” Galfond was the best on the poker tables this week, picking up nearly $300,000 in winnings over the past seven days. A large amount of the winnings came from multiple battles with Gus Hansen, but Galfond also fleeced a number of the top online players in the world throughout the week.

The first big hand of the week started off with Hansen raising from under the gun to $3,500. Galfond was the only player to call and the flop came Jd Ts 9d. Hansen put out a $6k continuation bet, only to have Galfond repop it to $17.8k behind him. Hansen however would raise again, and with another raise from Galfond the two were be all in. Hansen turned over 7s 8s for a jack high straight, however Galfond showed Qs Kh for a higher straight and would have Hansen nearly finished. The 5s fell on the turn though, giving Hansen a flush draw to take out Galfond’s straight. The river was a heart however, and Galfond’s king high straight would earn him the $121,062 from the pot.

The two would continue to battle it out shortly afterward when Galfond opened the hand with an under the gun raise. The raise would fold out all players except Hansen, who called $1,400 more from the big blind to see the 6h 2d Kh flop. Hansen checked to Galfond who bet out $3,200. Hansen check raised to $9k only to have Galfond put it up to $15.2k. Hansen called the raise from Galfond and the 8s came on the turn. Hansen then led out with a $35,700 bet, leaving Galfond to push the rest of his chips in the middle. Hansen called around $1,000 more and turned over Kc 4c for a pair of kings. Galfond on the other hand showed Td 9s and would need to catch a seven on the river to suck out on Hansen. The river came the Jd though and Hansen’s kings would take down the $109,260 pot.

Just fifteen minutes later, the two would once again contest a pot worth over $100,000. Galfond opened the action with a $2,400 raise from under the gun. Hansen would be the only one to call from the big blind and the flop would come 7c Kd 5d. Hansen checked to Galfond who put out a $3,400 continuation bet. Hansen check raised once again, pushing it up to $9k. Galfond would again come over the top of Hansen’s check raise, making the bet $19,400. Hansen made the call and would bet enough to put Galfond all in when the Qc came on the turn. Galfond made the call for nearly $37k though and turned over Td Ad for a gut shot straight draw and the nut flush draw. Hansen on the other hand showed 2h Kh for a pair of kings and would need to dodge a lot of cards on the river to win. The river came the 2c though and Galfond dumped nearly $60k more to Hansen.

Later on in the night it would be Galfond and Tom Dwan battling it out over another decent sized pot. Galfond opened the pot with a raise to $2,400 from the cutoff and the only caller would be Dwan in the big blind. The flop came 2s 7s Js and Dwan would take the lead with a $3,400 bet. Galfond smooth called behind and the 6d came on the turn. Dwan would continue to lead the hand with an $8,700 bet which Galfond would once again smooth call. The 9h on the river didn’t slow Dwan down, as he bet out $29,500 this time. Galfond would call again and show 9d Jd for two pair, while Dwan only had one pair with his Kh Jh, leaving Galfond to pick up the $88,497 from the pot.

Hansen and Galfond would once again play for a pot worth nearly $100k, only this time they would get all their money in before the flop. When all the money was in, it was a race between Hansen’s Td Tc and Galfond’s Qh Ah. The flop of 8h 2d Jd had Galfond in trouble, but an ace on the turn put Hansen one card away from losing the hand. The river didn’t help anybody and Galfond’s aces would give him the win in the $98,398 pot.
