Phil Galfond’s Condo Slide Featured on Yahoo!

Professional poker player Phil Galfond, whom we recently interviewed for our Weekly Shuffle column, had his Manhattan penthouse featured in a column on Yahoo!

Galfond, who has won millions playing the highest stakes cash games online under the screenname “OMGCLAYAIKEN”, purchased two Manhattan condos in October of 2008. Since one of the condos was on top of the other, Galfond got the novel idea to build a slide connecting the two properties:

The Yahoo! real estate section interviewed the architects of the slide who said, “this adventurous client requested something we’d never seen before.” Galfond’s place does include a staircase for times when taking the slide down to the bottom floor is not desirable.

The article questions why Galfond doesn’t have a ball pit at the bottom of the slide which is a pretty good point. Maybe we can get another interview with him to get to the bottom of that obvious oversight.
