‘ActionFreak’ books another win against Phil Galfond!


Things are heating up in Run It Once Poker founder’s ‘Galfond Challenge’. Currently, Phil Galfond is playing against online pro Ioannis Kontonatsios aka ‘ActionFreak’, many consider him as Galfond’s toughest competitor till date. In the past few sessions, the former has booked a small win and profited €19,003.

Galfond and his wife were celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary on Day 12 of the Galfond Challenge. Unfortunately, he took another loss of €57,580. On 14 May, Day 11 of the challenge saw ‘ActionFreak’ picking up a small €23k win off Galfond and cutting his deficit to €173,888 after completing 784 hands. The poker pros have agreed to play 15,000 hands and so far 8,788 hands have been complete. After the competition, the winner will receive €150,000 in a side bet from his opponent. 

Both players were back on Friday, Day 12 of the challenge. Another 710 hands were played in the last session and once again, booking two consecutive wins ‘ActionFreak’ took 57,580 off Galfond. One of the big pots that came on ‘ActionFreak’s’ way was when he had Kh 6d 5h 4d and Galfond had Ah Ac 9c 7h. The turn 7d and river 7s proved beneficial for the former who dominated Galfond with his straight.

  • Day 11 – ‘ActionFreak’ – €23,363
  • Day 12 – ‘ActionFreak’ – €57,580

Both players will be back on the virtual felts of partypoker on Saturday, 16 May for another 5-hour round. Only 6,234 hands remain which means they are past halfway through the game. Despite the swingy game such as PLO, Galfond still holds a lead of €116,308. While the momentum is on ‘ActionFreak’s’ side which could change at any point. Remember, Galfond’s miraculous comeback against his opponent ‘VeniVidi1993’?!
