Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond has put up his famous New York bachelor pad for sale, he reveals in a new video blog. The flat is never used by anyone and is therefore too expensive to keep, he says.
Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond has released a new video blog on his philgalfond.com website.
In the video, Galfond discusses his latest downswing at the online PLO tables, saying that he has now lost $580,000 over his past two sessions.
"It was crazy, I lost like $340,000, and I was bummed, but that was fine. Then a game started up again, and very quickly this time I lost another $240,000. It wasn't fun," he said, adding that he tries to not get too stressed out about the bad run.
"The money aside, it's losing that makes me feel bad. It just doesn't feel nice to lose."
The nosebleed icon also discussed his plans to sell his famous bachelor pad in New York City.
The apartment caught the eye of the general public once it was revealed that Galfond had a slide installed from one level to the other.
However, after Galfond moved to Canada to be able to play online poker
, the flat has become an expensive surplus asset, and it will now be sold on to someone else.
"I am selling my place in New York because I don't know when I will be able to live there full time again, and it's pretty expensive," Galfond said.
"Nobody's living there. I considered renting it out, but I don't really like the thought of someone living there. If I move back to New York I can find another place," he added.
Besides talking about his plans for the near future, Galfond also discussed his approach to bankroll management, among other things revealing that his recent bad run ended up costing him all the money left on his PokerStars
