RailHeaven rumbles; OMG KO'd in $315k pot

OMG Clay Aiken!!!1
OMGClayAiken: Winded.

The tournament circuit is back in full swing and still the big action junkies just can't fight the pull of RailHeaven.

Another epic session at Full Tilt's marquee $500/$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em table went down last night, with the six available seats filled until the early hours of this morning.

Hac "trex313" Dang, Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond, Phil Ivey, Tom "durrrr" Dwan, John Juanda, David "raptor" Benefield, Patrik Antonius, David Benyamine and more all took a crack at a big payday with high-stakes fish patatino again their target.

patatino ultimately got the best of them all except durrrr and Ivey, however, and walked away with close to $500k.

The surprise loser looked to be Galfond, who dropped an estimated $600k according to observers.

Galfond was on the short end of more than a few big pots, including the biggest for $315k at the hands of Ivey just before the session ended.
