Biggest yet online chip stack and take home yet recorded

The fascinating website HighStakesDB reports that a new record in chip stacks was set this week, with Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond enjoying massive success in the 6-max games on Full Tilt Poker.com. At one point during a remarkable session over the weekend, Galfond was sitting on a stack of $1.5 million at a $500/$1000 NLHE 6-max table. The $1.5 million stack is believed to be the largest stack at a single table in online poker history, High Stakes observes.

Despite experiencing a couple of big hit reversals, Galfond left with $1 266 264, also a new record. During the action Galfond apparently won 3 seperate pots each valued at well over $400 000.

Over the past few days the action around risk-taker Tom "durr" Dwan reached some exciting phases, too. On December 5th playing Hold'em NL $500/1000 he achieved a very impressive profit of $955 000 having totally dominated all opponents including formidable international players like Phil Ivey and Gus Hansen over a 24 hour period. He left the tables with a $455 000 and $772 000 stack - an overall profit of $955 000.

On December 6th Dwan was at the tables again, this time pushing his 24 hour winnings substantially over a million dollars by winning his largest hand ever - $657 000

The other side of the coin was a staggering $1.4 million loss for player "Ziigmund" in a NLHE game on December 7th, when the player's successful run in recent days came to an abrupt and expensive end. He wasn't alone, player "Elmariachimacho" took a massive $750 000 hit, too. The losers benefitted the still successful OMGClayAiken (+$613 000) Dwan (+$501 000) and Urindanger (+$409 000).
