Galfond will be commentating on the ring game action at PKR’s online poker room and it will include footage from a special ‘Galfond TV Cash Game’. Cash game players who are at the top of the leader board will be competing in the four hour ‘Galfond TV Cash Game’. This event will take place on January 24th and have high stakes buy-ins of $1,000 to $5,000.
Galfond will be commentating the event as well as sharing his knowledge of the game. Galfond has been a pro for many years and has major experience in high stakes cash games. Galfond has cashed out in the World Series of Poker six times and has earned one WSOP bracelet.

In 2009 Galfond and Billy Murphy founded Bluefire, an online poker training site. A team of poker pros including Galfond create instructional videos for players to improve their poker game. That same year the site signed a partnership deal with PKR. The online poker room served as the exclusive European Partner for the training site.
Erika Schwartz the Marketing Manager for PKR commented: “We are thrilled to have Phil in the studio to become a PKR TV commentator. It will be fantastic for our players to get someone of his reputation watching the action and giving some advice on their play.”

The Galfond TV Cash Game will be broadcast on The Poker Channel along with PKR TV. The action can be viewed in thirteen countries across Europe.
