Phil Galfond to open Online Poker Room

Legendary online poker pro Phil Galfond has announced that he will be opening an online, real money poker room.

Galfond made the announcement on his poker education site Run it Once where he said “A poker site should value poker players”. This strong messaging has sent a wave of excitement through the online poker community who are very excited for its launch.

Many online poker pros have felt like a bit of competition is necessary in the market. At the moment, PokerStars effectively has a monopoly on the online poker market. These pros feel like they aren’t getting the types of benefits they should get for playing thousands of hours per year and heavily contributing to the rake.
