The first night of “Rise and Grind” week belonged to Farah Galfond, who topped headliners John Cynn and Michael Mizrachi. Coming off of a strong end to “Solve for Hollywood” week, Galfond carried over the performance into the $100/$200 game on PokerGO.
Relive the full night’s action here:
Galfond’s night immediately started off in the right direction thanks to a three-way all-in victory. Placed in a huge hand against Justin Young and Mizrachi, Galfond found the perfect turn card to secure herself the largest part of a pot that reached the $100,000 stratosphere.
Galfond and Young finished up as big winners on the night. Young is out of the lineup tomorrow night and in his place steps Maria Ho.
John Cynn played in quite a few pots and showed why his hand-reading ability led him to become the 2018 WSOP Main Event champion.
Alan Richardson and Vitaliy Rizhkov booked respective wins and are scheduled to be back for the second night of “Rise and Grind” play.
