PN Pod: Phil Galfond Gives "Galfond Challenge" Update; He's Ready for High Stakes Duel
In the latest edition of the PokerNews Podcast, Sarah Herring, Chad Holloway, and Jesse Fullen welcome guest Phil Galfond to the show. The poker legend gives more details on his summer match against the poker dealer who stepped up to play him at some high-stakes online pot-limit Omaha (PLO) action, shares an update on the status of "The Galfond Challenge," and talks about the possibility of playing on PokerGO's High Stakes Duel, maybe against Phil Hellmuth or a PLO edition. He also talks about his recently-released PLO course.
Speaking of Hellmuth, the crew discusses Scott Seiver backing out of High Stakes Duel III and Jason Koon stepping up to fill his spot, as well as recap all the big stories coming out of the record-breaking PokerStars and Barcelona© Casino European Poker Tour including Michael Addamo claiming his first-ever EPT title and Giada Fang shipping a $30K Platinum Pass.
They also highlight Bobby Tieu's victory in the bestbet Jacksonville Summer Heater Event #1: $400 NLH, and launch the brand new PokerNews Bad Beat Hotline where listeners can call in (+1 702-625-0166) and share their bad beats, which may be featured on a future episode of the show.
