Negreanu Issues Heads Up Challenge

Negreanu Issues Heads Up Challenge

Wednesday, 27 February 2013

It looks like there will be some great heads up action for railbirds to enjoy at next month's EPT London after Daniel Negreanu threw down a challenge to Gus Hansen and his fellow Full Tilt ambassadors Tom Dwan and Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom.

After being gently teased by Hansen on Twitter about the massive $575k pot that he lost on High Stakes Poker, Negreanu responded with “I was going to congratulate you on your graph for 2013 but then realized I was looking at it upside down. Ouch!”

Kid Poker then used his latest weekly rant to lay down a challenge to Hansen and his fellow Full Tilt pros, offering to take them on in a battleship style heads up contest at EPT London.

Hansen has confirmed he'll be taking part, telling Negreanu “If you and your money will be there, I can't say no! :)”. Durrrr and Blom are yet to say yes but Hansen tweeted that he has a 'funny feeling they will make time for this'.

Exact rules of the contest haven't yet been decided but Daniel will choose a number of PokerStars pros to join him against Full Tilt Poker's finest.

Hear more about the contest and Negreanu's recent charity efforts in his latest rant.
