Phil Galfond held a mini challenge while VeniVidi took a break

Phil Galfond 2020

Phil Galfond took a little break in his first poker match within the Galfond Challenge at the end of February, after he had a downstreak and lost over 900 000 euros. When the player returned to the battle, he managed to play a number of successful sessions and almost got his money back. Currently, VeniVidi is still ahead of Phil and has an advantage in the amount of €154 000. However, Galfond’s opponent asked for 2 days off.

Facing an upstreak, Galfond decided not to miss the game sessions and held a mini-challenge.

On March 31, Phil Galfond announced the first #MiniGalfondChallenge, and it might be not the last one.

Challenge conditions: 800 hands in PLO $200/$400 against AmSoGood at PokerStars. It’s worth noting that the players didn’t agree on any side bets.

Yesterday, Galfond reported on the results of the mini-challenge:

Galfond seems to have a successful period now. As for the challenge against VeniVidi1993, they still need to play 5 637 hands out of 25 000 planned ones, and despite the fact that Phil is in the red by €154 288, he has every chance of winning the first Galfond Challenge.
