Phil Galfond Comes Back To the Challenge and Wins Huge

New Online Poker Poker News

Whoever thought Phil Galfond was down and out in his first heads up challenge against Veni Vidi was definitely writing off Phil’s resilience. He is back after his break and punching back harder than ever.

up over 180k

In the three sessions back Phil has booked 2 wins and one small loss. During one point of his third session back to the felt he was up over €120,000 but then a few coolers later at the end of the session he ended up booking more modest win of €27,198.94

Phil when talking about his post play breakdowns has stated that he thinks Veni managed to bluff him out of more pots than he could have imagined in the early game. He said that hero calls are tough to make when you are on a downswing, you get shown the nuts a few times in a row and it makes you less likely to call the bluffs when they come in.

This challenge is far from over and this point, with some people saying Phil is 25/1 to make the comeback to be the winner by the end of this challenge, personally I would love to put a wager on with those odds as I think he has a great shot at making this come back.

Check out some of the key hands in Phil’s epic comeback here:

As you can imagine, it’s PLO so any of these big pots are going to be coolers and this time they have been going Phil’s way

With this hand getting pretty large and it’s pretty obvious why with top set against second set here.

Another huge pot is where Phil hero calls with his flush on this board against Veni’s bluff with the Ace of hearts blocker.

These being some of the biggest pots of the session and Phil walking away the victor, it must be nice to get such a strong start after his break, we can’t wait to see how this one pans out, hold tight!
