Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan lays down multi-million dollar bet.

Most online poker players think Tom Dwan is God. Well, unlike the real (or not) God, this one is setting out to prove his divinity. The 22-year-old poker prodigy has laid down a challenge to every poker player in the world… except Phil Galfond.

In an interview with our gun-toting counterparts Bluff magazine, Dwan revealed that he is willing to play 50,000 hands across four tables of $200/$400 minimum PLO or NLHE. In addition to money won, if the player who has the cajones and bankroll to take up the challenge is even $1 up after rake, he wins $1.5m. If durrrr is up after the 50k hands, he wins $500k. For those who aren’t mathematically inclined, that means Dwan is offering 3-1 odds to any player in the world.

The only conditions that the young balla set are that stacks must be at least 75BBs at all times; tables can be changed when effective stacks become greater than 250BBs; all stakes must be the same throughout the challenge and Phil ‘OMGClayAiken’ Galfond is not allowed to play.
