Phil Galfond Rescues High Stakes Feud “Grudge Match”

Run It Once Poker CEO Phil Galfond has successfully arbitrated a dispute in the High Stakes Feud between Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu. Session #7 has been reconfirmed for Wednesday at 2:30pm Pacific Time.

An unexpected Tweet Tuesday by high stakes poker player Bill Perkins informed poker fans that the High Stakes Feud between Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu could potentially be delayed.

However, the matter now appears to have been settled by pre-selected arbitrator Phil Galfond — with both competitors reconfirming that Round 7 of the heads-up “grudge match” will proceed as scheduled.

Poker Players and Personalities React to Perkins Petition

Run It Once Poker player/personality Farah Galfond reacted to Perkins’ tweet on Tuesday, stating that her husband “has his own challenge” with Pot Limit Omaha specialist Chance Kornuth to contend with.

Professional poker player and World Series of Poker bracelet winner Will Jaffe struck a highly critical tone towards Perkins in an all-new #ToughConvo posted to Twitter.

In the two-minute clip, Jaffe describes the commodities trader as a “rich asshole” who visits Galapagos to “do acid with a bunch of extinct sea turtles and Dan Bilzerian.”

Video editor Thomas ‘SrslySirius’ Keeling dismissed claims that Bill Perkins’ most recent high-traffic Twitter thread could simply be a 4D-Chess maneuver to throw Polk off his game — arguing instead that “he’s just not very bright.”

Can Galfond ‘Seal of Approval’ Establish New Course for Poker World?

Phil Galfond’s ability to assist both Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu in working out a solution could potentially bode well for the RIO Poker executive’s chances of forming a separate regulatory body to monitor and influence the activities of poker rooms.

One that could be commercially sub-licensed to poker rooms around the world, according to Mid-States Poker Tour player Chris ‘Fox’ Wallace.

Can Phil Galfond Resolve ‘Pet Disputes’ Too?

Galfond’s proverbial Midas Touch could further be tested in upcoming days as poker players seek arbitration for their own disputes as well as those of their loved ones.
