Not only did he begin to play with Bill Perkins, his second challenge, he also celebrated his victory after defeating Daniel Cates aka ‘Jungleman’ for €86,870 earlier this month.

The Galfond Challenge between Phil Galfond and online pro Ioannis Kontonatsios aka ‘ActionFreak’ have agreed to play €150-300 Pot Limit Omaha. Currently, Galfond is winning above €2k per 100 hands which comes with 9 big blinds per 100 hands. The match is set for 15,000 hands with a €150,000 sidebet resting on the outcome.
