Galfond Challenge at a live poker table for the first time
The poker community hasn't watched the Omaha challenge with Phil Galfond for a long time. As part of this challenge, Phil Galfond has already won over €100 000 from "VeniVidi1993", almost €265 000 from "ActionFreak", €86 000 from Daniel Cates and $976 500 from Chance Kornuth.

Nevertheless, Phil launched another challenge against the American player Brandon Adams.
