      Fuer alle, die denken, dass Tom Dwan an Groessenwahnsinn leidet, hier sein naechster Streich:

      Original von durrrr

      “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.”

      ya i mean this wasnt supposed to be posted yet but w/e. Anyway... there are obv a few conditions, im out of it- but off the top of my head:

      1) 200-400min (nl/plo obv)
      2) can change tables anytime eff stacks are >250bb
      3) have to reload when stacks are <75bb
      4) $$ won in the challenge is kept obv (if i win 750k in poker, i get that PLUS your 500k- if i lose 750k in poker you get 2.25m total).
      5) same stakes the whole time
      6) not open to phil galfond

      hmm probly some other stuff but im out of it b/c i jus got owned @ some scrabble. I was gonna think up official 'terms' and post em or something, but thought i had another week or two b4 it became public.

      Geniestreich oder Wahnsinn?
      Wer wird sich stellen, wer haette ein Chance, wer fehlt in der Liste noch?
      Hier schonmal ein paar Namen von Highstakes Spielern, die mir gerade so einfallen, um die Diskussion anzuregen:
      Degenyamine, Antonius, Ziig, Ivey, Dang-Brothers, Krantz, Jman, CTS, Townsend, Raptor, Gus Hansen, Lars Luzak?

      Ist durrrr ueber 50k Haende Heads-Up ueberhaupt zu schlagen? Hat er eine Edge, weil er mehr als 4 Tische gespielt werden muessen?

      DISCUSS!!

      Update: So wie es aussieht, wird es passieren. Angeblich sollen David Benyamine, Phil Ivey und Patrik Antonius bereits Interesse angemeldet haben. Benyamine soll laut Cardplayer aber noch nicht endgueltig aktzeptiert haben.
