So as you are all probably aware by now, Dan “Junleman” Cates took Phil Galfond up on his heads up challenge. The infamous high stakes player agreed to play 7500 hands against Phil at $100/$200, the game is being played on the Run It Once Poker site that Phil launched last year.
The match began a couple of days ago with the loser having to post a video of why the other person is a better man! So you can imagine the stakes are pretty high, with Junleman having a pretty notoriously inflated ego.
Phil started out strong making some pretty nice hands and gained a nice early lead until Dan hit the case Ace in this huge pot against Phil’s set of Queens. All the money went in on the Turn but Phil got scooped in this one despite being a hug favourite with The Jungle needing to hit one of his 5 outs.
Phil wasted no time in punching back, making three Tens on the Turn and getting paid in full from Jungleman holding KKxx.
Action struck in this 4 Bet pot when Jungle Check raised all in with his top pair against Phil’s bad Aces… Phil held up and scooped another big pot.
Jungleman called a 4-Bet here with 8 High and two hearts and ended up getting it in versus Phil’s overpair and better flush draw, that’s about the worst shape you can be in post-flop in PLO and calling 4-Bets with poor hands will end up with you in some pretty horrible spots.Phil talked us through this hand by stating that he loved the flop, opted to raise but ended up going with a smooth call, he didn’t like the Turn card as it brought a flush claiming “My hand just got worse”… Phil then called Jungles bet again with the intention of deciding on some Rivers… Junleman pulled the trigger on what was a 3 barrel bluff that almost worked.Phil was up over €150,000 at his peak during this match, but lost around €60,000 back to The Jungle, with this poor flop for Aces in a huge 5-Bet Pot.
Phil was drawing live with a straight draw himself too, but it wasn’t to be and Jungle finally realised some equity against Galfond.When the dust settled Phil was the victor of the first of 10 sessions that will be played, with €86,870.52 locked up for his newly born kids trust fund.
This challenge is going to be twice as exciting as the previous ones due to the fact that both players are streaming! With Jungleman choosing to not even cover his hole cards.
