Run It Once Poker Is Launching in the USA Today

Phil Galfond has announced that Run It Once Poker is launching in the USA today, after it has been taken over by Rush Street Interactive, an American online gaming giant.

The Run It Once Poker platform and team have all been acquired, even Phil Galfond himself, and the product will be integrated into the RSI system.

Shared Values

Phil Galfond wrote that he spoke to many potential partners over the last 18 months but was most impressed by Rush Streets’s “fair and honest” approach to negotiation.

Galfond mentions that a big part of why he could attract more players was simply because the site wasn’t big enough—catch 22!

The software client was universally loved, with many popular innovations, but in the end it wasn’t enough.

Now, the team is ready to harness all the experience of a company that is much bigger, and one that has also built poker software clients in the past.

As of yet there are no firms plans to launch in the US, but it will happen in the near future, that much looks certain.

Phil Galfond’s Twitter thread has a confident ring to it, and given how demoralising his change of direction must have been at the time, we can assume that the Run It Once brand is once again on the up.
