Fernando “JNandez” Habegger, player and poker coach, has pulled out of a scheduled heads up match against high stakes poker pro and Run It Once Poker founder Phil Galfond.
Details on the challenge were posted by Galfond earlier this month.
Now that JNandez has pulled out, there will be no poker coaches taking part in the challenge.
JNandez posted his rationale for pulling out of the challenge on Twitter.
...despite posting this just a few hours before.
Doug Polk wasted no time wading in with his thoughts (I am expecting a YouTube video anytime now). For those of you who missed it, Polk and JNandez worked together on Polk’s Upswing Poker training site, and then acrimoniously parted ways in July of last year.
