Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond could change his screenname to OMGHowLucky after his monday session.

He was playing $200/$400 PLO table against David Benyamine, Di “Urindanger” Dang, “lady marmelade”, Richard “CHUFTY” Ashby etc. Galfond lift his stack up to $80k, before winning a big pot against Di “Urindanger” Dang.

Galfond raised preflop and “Urindanger” & “MclovinLocin” called.

Galfond bet $4,4k and after a long thinking-pause “Urindanger” called
Now Galfond is thinking and bets $12,4k. “Urindanger” waits a little bit and proceeds to raise the pot ($51,6k). Galfond quickly moves all-in and “Urindanger” calls.

Sick turn for “OMGClayAiken” put it just get sicker…


And Galfond wins the pot worth over $126k.

Monday was pretty terrible to “Urindanger”. After all, he lost over $117k the in PLO tables.


Many high stakes pros are very happy to see the ultra-rich Guy Laliberte back at Full Tilt Poker. Laliberte is known for example owning Cirque du Soleil and plays under then screenname “noataima”.

Yesterday he was back on the tables and lost $226.000 – another big loser was Ilari Sahamies “Ziigmund” (-$213.000) who has been having a crazy rollercoaster lately. Ziigmunds chat has been running also quite hot lately – here he is trashing Di Dang:

Ziigmund: hope u doie f godngodong
Ziigmund: fu moron chin
Urindanger: it’s chink.
Urindanger: learn to spell
Urindanger: chin. wtf
Ziigmund: what chink means?
Ziigmund: i didnt mean that word
Ziigmund: r u asian?

This hand might have something to do with it (Ziggys aces are cracked badly):

Tom Dwan “durrrr” has been doing really strong this month. Already booking winnings worth over $750.000 from April. Another big winner is Di Dang “Urindanger” – winning a bit over $370.000, but his brother Hac Dang “trex313” has lost $240.000.

Yesterday was yet another day with lots of action and huge pots. Di “Urindanger” Dang played a marathon session against a new player “x13full” – beating him finally. David Benyamine was back with a vengeance – building a stack alomost worth $400.000! Ilari “Ziigmund” Sahamies was having a huge rollercoaster again – building huge stacks then losing lots of those to Benyamine.


Di Dand – Urindanger winner of the marathon session

Phil Ivey has been doing really well lately. During the last couple of days he has beaten Phil Galfond aka. OMGClayAiken for more then $200.000 and Di Dang (Urindanger) also. But the best matches for Ivey have been against the screenname seda1 – he already had won more than $500.000 from seda1.


Yesterday we saw on of the sickest sessions of online-poker when Ivey faced seda1 again at Full Tilt Poker. Ivey has told other pro-players that they were crossbooking with seda1 (meaning that they would double the stakes – so the $500/1000 blinds would be actually $1000/2000 and the pots double the amount). They use crossbooking since no poker room has games that big.


When the games ended Ivey had a stack worth over $800.000! He had to reload once – so he won over $600.000 from seda1. And if they really were crossbooking the amount is actually $1.200.000!

Here are some great hands from the session:

250k pot:

Nice checking with a flopped set:


Huge 385k pot:


285k pot – nice turn for Ivey:


Ivey makes a stack worth over 800k:


But who is seda1?

There has been lots of rumors around this – but one thing is sure: he is familiar with Phil Ivey. Making crossbookings and wanting only to play with Ivey. He might be a pro basketball player.. or even Barry Greenstein some are saying. But we are quite sure that seda1 is not Barry… Barry would be a much better player 🙂

Ok, this has been confirmed by many reliable sources – Hac Dang used to play before with the screenname jinsokkp but now he is the man behind trex313. So Dang brothers are rolling pretty strong at Full Tilt’s big games.

Di Dang aka. Urindanger:


Di Dang aka. Urindanger and Hac Dang aka. trex313 have been winning a lot – especially trex313 have seemed to be unbeatable. Hac Dang has managed to book already winnings worth $800.000 this year alone at Full Tilt Poker.

Phil Ivey has been playing a lot against trex313 – with bad result. But the last session was a bit better for him, Ivey managed to book winnings worth a bit over $200.000. The biggest hand went down like this:

Pre-flop: trex313 raises to $3.000, Ivey re-raises to $9.000, trex313 calls

Flop: Qc Qh Ts

Ivey bets $14.000, trex313 calls

Turn: Jh

Ivey best $31.000, trex313 calls

River: 2s

Ivey all-in, trex313 calls $98.087

Phil Ivey shows: Jc Js, trex313 mucks

Phil Ivey wins pot worth of $304.194

trex313: gg we’ll play later, you
trex313: owned me up
Phil Ivey: peace
trex313: break
Phil Ivey: text me if u wanna play later

Bluff magazine revealed in the latest issue the personalities under the names Urindanger and jinsokkp. Two brothers have been playing with these accounts Di Dang and Hac Dang.

“For those not already aware, Hac and Z are nosebleed-stakes cash game players on Full Tilt Poker who have won millions of dollars beating up on some of the toughest competition on the internet. The brothers, Di (pronounced “Z”) and Hac Dang, own and share the account”


Di ‘Z’ Dang began playing poker in a home game against his friends. He got the bug and began to study hard; reading books, magazines, and forums. Two years later has him playing online, usually 8 to 12 simulatenous high stakes cash games.

Now there have lots of rumors that trex313 account would actually be their account – or mainly played by Hac Dang. trex313 has been on a very nice winning streak – again yesterday beating Phil Ivey with hands like this (winning around $100.000):



We haven’t seen LarsLuzak playing at Full Tilt Poker for a long time… what happened?


Sami told that he had a bad downswing and lost all the money he had on the account. And that he can’t find a reason to make a new deposit. Why?

Basically the main reason is that nobody wants to play him heads-up and all the bigger no-limit ring-games are mostly dead. And he decided to take a looooong vacation and travel to Thailand for a month.

But now on February we have seen him play under the LrsLzk nickname at MicroGaming network couple of sessions. Those ones not going too well – he has lost already $50.000 in those sessions.

LarsLuzak lists the best NL-players online:

1. Patrik Antonius “FinddaGrind”

-Patrik has always been the toughest opponent for Kelopuro. Sami considers Patrik as a action player – you never know what’s going to happen against him… anything is possible! Patrik is also very hard to read.

2. Phil Galfond “OMGClayAiken”

-Galfond is totally different kind of player, much more solid than Patrik. Its hard to take advantage from him, but he is not a weak player.. very good at catching bluffs.

Phil Ivey and Chris Lee (Genius28) are both very tough – Sami thinks that Ivey is better in other forms of the game and Lee is excellent at making thin value bets.

Other excellent players Sami mentions are Urindanger and trex313, but he wouldn’t put them into top5.
