Here we are not even 8 days into the new year and already high stakes online poker player Phil Galfond is down a whopping $210K in 2011.

That’s gotta hurt!

Galfond is probably better known online by his poker handle “OMGClayAiken”.

From HighStakesDB.com:

He lost $132K in just 42 hands of $200/$400 against Ziigmund and $77K playing $100/$200 against Johnbest. Ziigmund, by the way, had a very active day playing a total of 1357 hands, and even though he lost $120K in two HU matches against Rui Cao ended up winning $81K for the day.

Galfond’s high profile online landed him on Season 6 of GSN's High Stakes Poker.

Though he plays on Full Tilt Poker as “OMGClayAiken”, on the PokerStars site he is known as “MrSweets28”.

According to Galfond, he chose “OMGClayAiken” as the antithesis of the “macho” screen names that are prevalent in online poker in hopes that other players would be embarrassed to lose to him.  One can assume the same holds true for a handle the likes of “MrSweets28”.
