As widely respected for his poker teaching as he is for his online prowess, Phil Galfond is one of the most successful online high stakes cash players of all-time, with $10m in online winnings to his name. He has translated that success into the live tournament arena when he picked up a bracelet and $817,781 in 2008 in the $5k PLO rebuy event.
Through his training videos at BlueFirepoker.com, and subsequently RunItOnce.com, he has tutored and inspired players everywhere to think and play like a modern online pro. Following Black Friday, he moved from the United States to Canada in order to continue playing online.
