After being down $280,000 against Galfond nobody was expecting Kornuth to turn the tides.
Nevertheless, he managed to win both of the latest sessions and cut his deficit in half.
He made $82,000 in his latest session against Galfond and $79,000 in the previous one which puts him at a deficit of -$117,000.

Prior to his first huge winning session against Galfond, the Challenge had to go on a short break, because Kornuth had to wait for a deposit limit increase.

However, it didn’t take too long and maybe the break-even worked in favor of the underdog in this case. Kornuth came up huge in the next two sessions and bagged some huge winnings back-to-back.
