Galfond Chipping Up

[user139916] • Nivel 1: 50-100, 0 ante

Over at the secondary feature table, Glenn Galfond (Phil's father) is off to a terrific start.

We picked up the action on a {J-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop where an opponent bet 250. Galfond raised to 500, forcing folds from two other players, one being Tom Dwan. The bettor called and the {K-Diamonds} hit the turn. The bet was 200 to Galfond who came along to see the {7-Diamonds} river card. This time the bet was 1,000 to Galfond. He called, turning over {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}.

His opponent couldn't beat it, showing {J-Spades}{10-Diamonds}, propelling Galfond's stack to about 48,000.
