Confident Challenge from Dwan
January 5, 2009 (InfoPowa News) — Internet poker multi-tabling and nosebleed stakes ace Tom "durrr" Dwan clearly savors the adrenaline of competition, and has started the new year with an interesting 3-to-1 challenge open to all online poker players with the wherewithal, confidence, and courage to take on one of the most exciting and unpredictable pros on the Net.
Dwan ended 2008 up $3.4 million in NLHE alone for the month of December. Out of six December nosebleed pots worth well over half a million each, Dwan won four, completing his year with an overall NHLE profit of more than $6 million.
Now, according to a report in Bluff Magazine, Dwan is throwing down the gauntlet to the rest of the poker world to prove he's the best — and he's willing to lay anybody who thinks otherwise a better than even money price.
"I'm making this heads-up challenge to the world," Dwan told Bluff Magazine. "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."
Bluff will be running details on how the challenge shapes up in its February 2009 edition.
