Antonius Challenge starts today

Tuesday, 24 July 2012

We haven't seen much in the way of heads up challenge matches in recent months but that will be remedied later today when Patrik Antonius takes on qualifier Rui Faria in a €20,000 showdown.

The pair will clash online at iGame over two matches with the Portuguese challenger pocketing €5,000 if he wins the first contest and €20,000 if he overturns the odds and wins both of them. If he loses both matches he'll still walk away with a nice consolation prize of a €2,000 iGame Open package.

Each player will have a 50k starting stack with blinds start at 100/200, going up every 20 hands. The action gets under way at 6pm UK time and will be streamed live at iGame.
