Day 2 | 21 day challenge

The Galfond Challenge has served as a soothing escape from reality during the current global health pandemic. But it’s also taught the poker community some valuable lessons that beginners may not have realized.

Phil Galfond first competed in an action-packed battle for the ages against “VeniVidi1993,” an online pro at Pkv Games. He rallied from a €900,000 deficit to win the 25,000-hand, high-stakes PLO competition in the final session. More than 22,000 poker fans watched the historic comeback live on Twitch.

Galfond then began his second and third challenges, one against Bill Perkins and  the other against online pro, “ActionFreak.” Through two sessions and 1,013 hands against Perkins, he leads €90,144. In his other match, the Run it Once founder has a massive lead of €416,442 after four days.

The once-dominant player on Full Tilt Poker has now completed nearly 30,000 hands. Although there are still many hands remaining, and multiple competitors waiting in line, the Galfond Challenge has taught us quite a bit about the game of poker, especially Pot-Limit Omaha.

Patience is a Virtue

During Galfond’s first match against “VeniVidi1993,” he trailed by nearly $1 million through 16 sessions. He considered walking away and just paying off the €200,000 side bet. Instead, he took a month off and regrouped.

Most poker players can’t afford to lose that kind of money. Actually, most don’t have that much to lose in the first place. But the lesson Galfond taught us, especially beginners, is that no matter how much money you’re down, if you play your cards right and remain patient, you can get out of the hole. Well, unless you run out of money and can’t pay for the buy-in, of course.

PLO Swings Aren’t for the Faint of Heart

In the first 10,000 or so hands of his challenge against “VeniVidi1993,” Galfond lost €900,000. Over the ensuing 15,000 hands, he recovered those losses and turned a small profit at the €100/€200 stakes.

It’s certainly no secret that Pot-Limit Omaha is a game of high-variance. The swings are massive, and it doesn’t matter what buy-in level you play at. But for those who don’t play much PLO, if any at all, you may not have realized just how big those swings can  be. If you can’t handle constant ups and downs, this probably isn’t the game for you.
