Midweek madness broke out at the Full Tilt high stakes NLHE virtual tables Wednesday as some of the top players on the Internet (or in live tournaments, for that matter) cruised in and started playing.
According to MarketPulse, at the end of the session two well known names – Phil Galfond and Aaron Jones – emerged as the biggest winners, respectively taking home $600 000 and $780 000!
Phil Ivey took something of a hammering, going down $260 000 before switching to PLO, where he made a $480 000 pprofit before calling it a night.
Other noticeable names active on the tables included Patrik Antonius and his 50 000 hand Challenge opponent Tom Dwan, and newly returned David Benyamine who did not have the massive success he enjoyed earlier in the week.
MarketPulse reports that the action was frenetic, with many huge pots over $100 000, 17 pots over $200 000, another three just short of $300 000 and three monster pots worth over $300 000.
