On Friday RaiseOnce first sat at $400/$800 8-game and $1,000/$2,000 H.O.R.S.E. with no takers before Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond finally took him on at $200/$400 PLO.
Galfond stacked RaiseOnce for over $200k in a short session but would go on to play another 3,000 hands this weekend and ended up finishing with $160k in profit.
Although all the buzz was on RaiseOnce this weekend there were some big winners on PokerStars as mTw-DaviN took down $219k. AltiFC (+$92k), tiltjezz (+$73k) and 1II|1II|1iI| (+$63k).
1II|1II|1iI| has been on one heck of a heater lately and has won over $1 million in the last three weeks alone.
RaiseOnce was indeed the biggest loser on PokerStars over the weekend but EireAbu (-$209k), Lrslzk (-$84k), Long90110 (-$84k) and PimpyLimpy (-$55k) all lost big.
Keep in mind that Long90110 was heavily rumored to be Tom Dwan so that means its possible that two former Full Tilt superstars were active on PokerStars over the weekend.
