must say that I didnt expect that he can back from such a big loss,with over 900 K and now after lot of days of break and days of play after it,he start to play so good and to get good cards,so now he is in profit,which is great for him and very strange situation!who would say that this break will be good,even every day that he didnt play,he lost 3000 e!

That is a strange world for me. I never play heads up of poker in my life. Obviously, I play it when is his time in a sit&go or in a tournament, but I feel that this is different. In a tourney or a S&G you have some knowledge about your enemy, you was playing with him several time and you can make the adjust of your game

HU PLO I don't know , haven't played before . But I know that PLO generally is a game of many upswings and downswings , easily you can lose big money , but with soem luck you also win much during a session . The more skillfull you are , the more odds to have awesome results in this game .

Seeing these two great playersbattling each other , with these swings . It was so devastating this -$900.000 loss at the beginning for Glafond , so early , so easy . I felt strange for this , now this come back , he is really awesome , ofourse venividi is on the other hand , in danger to los this challenge and pay his opponent. This headus uo of 900.000$ wasn'tenough to succeed .... PLO miracles !!

Yes PLO is a risky way of play. You can loose a lot of money there, but is funny to play. I register to all the Omaha freeroll that I could find. I prefer PLO because is more safe than Omaha NL, but I try to play all of the tournament that appears, including PLO8 that is a variant with Low and High rewards. I really funny but I´m a total fish there (more than usual!)

With 700 hands more to come Galfond now he's 20.000$ behind Venividi . Will he manage to succeed ?? Anyway , it's very close , anything could happen , anyone of them could win this challenge . The most important thong is the way Galfond came at this point , this miracle comeback , from -900.000$ to thus point where he might also have the win and some profits !!! Even if he loses , no comparison to the 1.000.000$ he might have lost if this downswing had not stopped .

Phil Galfond vs Venividi1993 was very interesting when the difference was huge and the winner "offended" the loser... This was a great ambition for this player and now his strategy gave very good results. I wait for the end of the sessions to see what it will be.

-$8.000 now the difference , Glfond behinf Venividi , I want to see the end of this duel , with this crazy downswing and then upswing by Galfond , he surely deserves to win showing how good he really is , at least on PLO in comparison to many other PLO pros in the world nowadays .

It is a formidable recovery from this player and by the end of the sessions he can earn some money. A very difficult & sad game in the first part but this thing can turn into something that will remain in his mind, all his life. Must to see final result and we will talk.

I understand doing the challenge.
But opening a poker site in this era is not the best move you can do.
If you have money to spare though you can try to "keep the dream alive" Smile
We have een such attempts in the past that failed, but you never know.
The future will show Smile

WOW !!! At the photo phinish he manages to take this win , with $1.000 profit in comparison to venividi , so little but it was enough to give him the vistory , the 100k I believe - the stake if he won like he did , and the admiration of the poker community , for this awesome games and the comeback from almost losing 1M and the challenge , to the point he was announced the victorious one !! Really he deserves every applause Smile

He took penalties for the breaks he toom , but this was done also by venividi , to come back stronger . Who payed the most penalties , I don't know . But a break always helps to find again your A+ game , or else bad strategy and tilt will go on , with many more losses and finally the loss of the game or challenge . Galfond made good use of the breaks , they helped him . Venividi no , it didn't help him .
