During his time on Pokerstars, Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond has engaged in some notable battles against the likes of Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Daniel "KidPoker" Negreanu.

Galfond burst into the spotlight in June of 2008 when he took down the $5k Pot Limit Omaha (w/ Rebuys) event at the World Series of Poker for over $800k.
