After spending a month away from his heads up challenge against VeniVidi, Phil Galfond has made an explosive comeback, booking 4 wins out of the 5 matches they have played since.

With the events that happened, it seems that RunitOnce CEO has successfully pulled-off a General McArthur “I shall return” when he said, “I’m gonna keep playing” in a post that was published on their website, about two weeks into his indefinite break.

Galfond managed to win a total of €307,931.11 since his return, cutting his deficit down to €592,309.06

The 25,000-hand challenge is currently 12,842 hands complete, which means even though VeniVidi is in the lead, it’s still anyone’s game.
