Details of the Galfond Challenge
Here is the challenge Phil Galfond issued on Twitter:
“I’m looking for some high stakes HU action to help promote Run It Once Poker, and I’d like it to be a challenge that we can build some hype around. An open challenge to anyone who currently makes training videos for a site other than Run It Once. HU PLO, similar to the infamous Durrrr challenge: 50k hands, 3:1 on a sidebet of 10 buyins, played at 100/200+.Any competing training site coaches – please feel free to take me up on that! You’ll get preference over anyone else. (Plus you’ll get 3:1) I’d consider dropping the stakes if it helps get me some action here, but I would prefer a bigger game so we can bring in some viewers.”

Galfond showed big time guts by offering 3:1 odds on hi schallenge and it didn’t take long to find some takers.
