Will Kornuth begin to smash Galfond?

The last time we wrote about the HU match between Phil Galfond and Chance Kornuth was after 10 sessions. After a short break, Kornuth was able to win back $78k in the next session. But Phil's lead even after that was over $200k and it seemed big enough.

The next three sessions held from October 13 to 22 changed the course of the match:

Session Winner Results Hands
11 (13 October) Chance Kornuth $84,000 540
12 (20 October) Chance Kornuth $150,000 549
13 (22 October) Chance Kornuth $157,000 500
Total Chance Kornuth $190,000 6,850

Chance Kornuth won three sessions in a row for the first time and won $157,000 in one day. After 6,850 hands, he is ahead by $190,000.

However, Kornuth is still far from the record set by "ActionFreak," who was able to win €264,044 in one day and 721 hands.

On social networks, Chance remains laconic. The poker coach simply called the last session "another good day":
