Daniel Cates challenges Phil Galfond to Galfond Challenge again
Those interested in Phil Galfond's heads-up challenge that is called Galfond Challenge may remember that Dan Cates lost to Phil Galfond in their mini-challenge.
During their battle, Galfond managed to win €86 870 against Cates and, according to the rules of that challenge, Cates was forced to admit Galfond's superiority.
More than a year has passed since then and Cates has gained confidence and is ready to challenge the founder of Run It Once Poker again.
Cates decided to challenge Galfond rather aggressively in his Twitter post:
As you can see, this is a pretty bold statement from a poker player who has already lost to Galfond in his challenge. This time their challenge will be held with blinds of €100/€200 at a distance of 2 500 hands.
After Cates finishes with Galfond, he promises to take on Phil Hellmuth. This is a very strong statement. Let's see if Cates can bring it to life.
