In the spirit of poker these 1 to 1 duels with professional players are very good. They make you want to play with more concentration and ambition. The thought of making money is also very good and you just have to try this. These games attract players as an advertisement.

I believe Galfond will not find a hard time defeating Perkins , I believe this will be a short battle , less than 20k hands , mybe less than 12k hands !!!! (don't have any special info about this , it's just my instict )

Perkins is not at the level of Galfond , not even close . Galfond is extremelly good at PLO , which ofcourse is a game with terrible swings , even a not so good player might be lucky very much , at least on a short period of time , but on the long run , in 25k hands , he doesn't stands a chance , he has to be extremelly lucky , or Galfond to play extremelly loose , tilty and terrible , which is not a total improbability , but it is very hard to happen indeed Smile

What a life, what a world! He "stay afloat" to win $ 1400, but won a side bet of...$ 100.000!. And now, he makes a bet of $ 1M, and Party Poker host his game. So, he makes a new business with the poker´s room, who think that is a good atracting publicity to spend some money there. If the only meaning of life was to make money, I would think that I was wrong when I decided my proffession.

The games can be balanced, but can also be with huge differences in winning. I remember Isildur1 or Gus Hansen who had some duels at the cash games, where they lost or won millions of dollars. The difference can be great even if they are professionals.

Yes is true, there are differences between the pro-players, and the amount of side bets show that. Although it is necessary to consider different questions, and the proportion have not direct relation with the skills, obviously, Galfond is favorite versus Perkins, and if we interpolate these relations between side bets and skills, Isildur is favorite versus Perkins.

These games always attract many looks, because people are interested to see the movements of some professionals, when they are given on TV or on the Internet. Poker is no longer on the road it was 10 years ago but abilities of PRO players have increased considerably.

Perkins lost this challenge the same day and hour he though he can , and decided to try out Galfond and his poker skills , he's mo match for him Smile I hope Galfond crashes him , not slow play or give him some friendly poker games' hands , just crash him Smile This is not a joke , it's a real high stakes challenge , teach him a lesson , lol Smile

Anyway , Perkins doesn't expect to live via poker , he has money , poker is his passion , his hobby maybe , he's an embassadot of the game to the non poker world , I believe the same way as that guy with the provokative lifestyle in luxurie , with parties with women , etc , what was his name again Question Question Can't remember Smile . Anyway , he's more like a amateur player , not a pro . So he'll have fun , the defeat won't hurt him . But if Galfond loses , I will quesgtion this result by him for sure Blink

Sometimes boredom occurs and players are no longer focused on the game. This can happen to anyone but that is not the only thing he chose to play as an amateur. He tried a drastic change in style to put the opponent in difficulty...

I think that poker´s game got popular before than ten years. In fact, I´m playing since 2008, despite I played it for play money about two years, in substitution of the solitaire. What a good meeting! But you have the reason about the increasing skills of the professional, and I can add one question: The reduction of the age mediated. Some final table seems like a schooll table today!

Any player who enters in a tournament wants to get in the last two and fight for the final victory. When you first start a heads up game then you can think that the amount of money won or lost can be consistent because is poker professional.

But is totally different arrive to a heads up after to play a tourney or a simple sit&go, than directly play a heads up. In this way, you haven´t information of the villain and you have to believe 100% in yours strategy, trying to not giving information. For me is really hard, but some mobster like it. Do you remember pajalnick, CALICUL? He loved the HU!!

The last time when i saw Pajalnick was on a freeroll tournament and i eliminated him. He asked for all in with small pair. I paid and i won. Some gamblers love heads up but me i don't. I tried to play many years ago but it made me nervous. The cards were against me...

Is a speciality that have his own rules and strategies. There you could use the SAGE method, which is given a number of points to each card and making some mathematicals operations. I take notice of it and another who have a range table that pay special attention to the number of blinds that each one have. And have different propose if you have, for example: 3,8 or 3.5 BB. Really crazy!

The second day was very profitable for Phil Galfond with a $ 90,000 profit. These huge differences between Pro players do not always happen but the miracle always is possible. I don't know what the end result will be but we can follow.

Ofcourse PLO is a game with great variance and many upsand downs , upswings and downswings , but then again this is not any match . This is one of the best PLO pros Galfond vs Perkins , Galfond is $90k more thsan Perkins , with 1k hands . I believe he's going to win for sure , it's a matter of time .
