RailHeaven, which is the $500/$1000 No Limit Hold'em 6-Max table on Full Tilt Poker, has been extremely busy as of late. A couple of days ago, you had the battles between Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Peter W Jepsen that provided three of the biggest ever online poker pots. Last night, another game at the table took place that nearly lasted until Thursday afternoon.
The reason for the extremely long high-stakes battle? "patatino", which is an account that apparently belongs to Guy Laliberte. Laliberte has dropped millions upon millions of dollars to the high-stakes games on Full Tilt Poker, and as long as he was sitting at the table, the game wasn't going to stop.
The game included names such as Phil Ivey, David Benyamine, Tom "durrrr" Dwan, Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, Patrik Antonius, John Juanda and Hac "trex313" Dang. In the end though, the "fish" ended up banking the biggest profit, as "patatino" made an estimated $450k+ in the game.
Phil Ivey sat down during the middle of the night and ended up clearing an estimated $200k in total profit. Tom "durrrr" Dwan was another of the big winners in the game, making an estimated quarter of a million dollars.
The big losers in the game? Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond had a rough night, dropping in excess of $500k. Patrik Antonius dropped $200k before leaving the game, while David Benyamine lost nearly $150k.
"patatino" is still one of the biggest losers on Full Tilt Poker in 2008, even after his impressive win on Wednesday night / Thursday morning. Also, even after dropping an estimated $600k, Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond is still one of the biggest winners on Full Tilt Poker this year, trailing only Benyamine, Phil Ivey and Tom "durrrr" Dwan.
Some of the biggest hands from the session can be found here, in the 2+2 September High Stakes Thread.
