It looks like the Galfonds challenge that is running from half a month might be already over.

Galfond and ‘VeniVidi1993’ have battled across 15 sessions at €100-€200 PLO on Run It Once Poker, Galfond’s online poker site to promote the site. Through those 15 sessions, 9,927 hands were played and Galfond was down €900,240.17. The three most recent sessions have set Galfond back €419,016.77 alone.

Phil said the two had six more sessions planned in February and that missing those sessions will see Galfond take a per-session penalty of about €3,000 each. Galfond and ‘VeniVidi1993’ were planning to play 25,000 hands, with Galfond risking €200,000 in side action to the €100,000 of ‘VeniVidi1993.’ In his note, Galfond said he is going to suspend playing anymore sessions against ‘VeniVidi1993’ until at least March 1.

When March 1 rolls around, Galfond will decide if he’s going to continue to battle with ‘VeniVidi1993’ or call it off. If Galfond does elect to call it off and accept defeat, he’ll have to pay ‘VeniVidi1993’ the €200,000 side bet money.

“I hope I feel prepared to come back and put on a good show for you all, but I know that realistically, as much as I don’t want to, there’s a chance I’ll have to just take the loss,” Galfond said.

Galfond still has plenty of more people lined up against him - details say he's to go against Bill Perkins, Brandon Adams, Chance Kornuth, Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates, and high-stakes online poker player ‘ActionFreak.’ Those matches have their own specific terms, stakes, and length of play, but no timetable has been set for when they will take place.

Luke Schwartz made a very rude tweet to Phil but he had one good point, it was a big mistake to play a "random gto bot", it was very likely he was going to be a big dog and also there isnt much glory or buzz if he defeats venividi

It seems to be not very profitable in the long run to play those kind of hands. - Gus Hansen

  Come on, Luke ????

Call me a delusional, outmatched washed-up, nice(?) nerd all you want, but don’t act like I’m dodging our challenge. We’ll play when I’m done with a few of these, probably after WSOP, as we’ve discussed & planned. Do I have to post our texts?

Maybe an update for this challenge now considering they have played around 19k hands and Galfond is only 150k in the red.

An update to this would probably make some sense..

With every passing day I enjoy seeing this on the front page more and more. Even after Galfond has taken all the money in the world in a 6max mega challenge against Bezos, the IMF, the ECB, Black Rock and the Fed, and is issuing a new open challenge to the Galaxy, this will still be here.

Researchers used brain scans to show that when straight men looked at pictures of women in bikinis, areas of the brain that normally light up in anticipation of using tools, like spanners and screwdrivers, were activated.

It’s like the headline is 1940 - Europe Fucked, Allies take a break.
