Furthermore, the multiple entries in his personal blog, where he reflects on a plethora of different issues, always echoed in both social networks and mere conversations. It's partly why, everything surrounding Galfond, one way or another becomes news.

A few years ago, founded with partner William F. Murphy, portal where Glafond hung his videos and explanations to form new players. No wonder, that his material was the most visited, given the notoriety that the American player has acquired over time.

When one day, Galfond announced he was leaving BlueFire Poker, something was wrong. He did it through a post titled "A Sad Day", in which he mentioned something in one paragraph:

"On this day, BlueFire and I parted ways. It is very hard to separate from something that I have contributed to its growth from the beginning. Believe me it is very hard for me to take this decision. "

Something strange was cooking, and recently it has known what. Apparently, Galfond has filed suit against his partner, who allegedly refused to pay the benefits of belonging to the "MrSweets28".
The joint venture pact that created Galfond came when the portal was a 38.33% of the profits. In 2009 he received $179,000, and about $238,000 next year, but not a penny for the services provided in 2011, when it was still part of the project. Furthermore, Galfond also complains he had never seen a single book of accounts or accounting records:

"Blue Fire has been and is a very successful website, with thousands of members and visitors. Murphy has appropriated unilaterally portal, and has developed and managed according to their own use and enjoyment."

There will be attentive to how this issue evolves, which will surely bring some tail.
