This million dollar heads up challenge could end up being Durrr's second worst idea ever.
So it's popping up here, here, and here that David Benyamine, Patrik Antonius, and Phil Ivey have all accepted Tom "Durrr" Dwan's $1M heads up challenge.
For a recap, as first reported by Bluff Magazine here, Durrr said:
“I’m making this heads-up challenge to the world. Anyone can accept. Four tables, minimum of $200/$400, and I’ll put up $1.5 million to their $500,000. We play 50,000 hands minimum and if they end up a dollar after rake they keep the side money or whatever. So basically, if you and I played and you won a dollar, you would get my $1.5 million and if I won a dollar I would win your $500,000.
“So I’m giving a million dollars free if anyone thinks they can do it.”
No shocker that Ivey jumped all over that, even though he usually plays two tables at a time versus Durrr's four. Not surprised that Antonius and Benymaine (reportedly) have though. Ivey had the best line regarding the challenge so far, saying on Tuesdays with Ivey:
"I've never posted a challenge because I just assume everyone knows I'll play anyone in any game."
Ivey said it's possible at these stakes you could lose $5 to $10 mil. Should be fun. We'll keep you posted.
