Well if you watched that PAD you know that Dwan and Ivey have now made what could be the largest prop bet in poker history. Dwan gave Ivey $40,000 to have the ability to play heads up $50,000/$100,000 Horse at anytime over the next year or over the course of 100,000 hands. Phil may buy out at anytime for $1,000,000 and at the end if Ivey is a winner he must give dwan back 96% of his winnings. If Dwan is the winner he does not have to forfeit anything and he also gets an additional $1,000,000 from Ivey. What do you think? Will they ever play this one? Is this bet in Dwan favor? Is Ivey be so much better player to offer 96% of winnings? Is it possible for them to play 100 000 in so high limits?
They also had another prop bet between Phil and Tom, that Phil didn't eat meat for one year for 1 million dollars. After one week Phil bought himself out for 50k I think. That was in the episode that they had a no shuffle prop bet on the side.

OK heres the deal that was made... Dwan paid Ivey $40k for the option to start a match with Ivey by the end of 2011. Match details are: 100k hands HU HORSE Dwan plays 2k/4k limit, Ivey plays 50k/100k limit (with Ivey giving 96% of profits back) Dwan can buy out of the match after losing $1mill for $2mill Ivey can buy out of the match after losing $1mill for $10mill If Ivey refuses to play then Ivey owes $1mill

This are so big numbers one can start being confused about the value of money. I live in a country which is now passing through an economical crysis and they say Portugal's external debt should be around €90 billion. Instead of joining great thinkers in big meetings trying to solve the problem, why not start having huge events, for instance, some of them poker related, with big guys and with lots of publicity to generate the money. Or put politicians asking for 1$ to everyone they know, except for portuguese, of course.

It's an interesting bet but it's obvious very profitable for tom dwan durrrr. I think the producers of the Poker After Dark show were behind this bet, i don't really think it was something spontanesly. I liked the previous bet that tom dwan and phil ivey had before this one, as the commenter of the show said that got the most expensive piece of chicken ever eat lol On the other hand i really enjoy this pot limit omaha series of poker after dark, there is a lot more action than on the no limit holdem editions and the pots seem to grow with each episode I still think the big favourite is phil ivey, all poker games are his A games lol Nice post btw

Either way you look at it...........ITS STILL SICK.....Putting that kinda money up wouldnt they come out better building an orphanage together for under privaleged kids. Would deffinately get more out of it. In my opinion they would earn respect and not prestige of just the money... but then again .Its just my opinion

Posted by todd3311: theres no way they played at those stakes,no way not ever
Not ye, lol. This is to held in the future. And they play these kind of stakes all the time. They do go to each others houses and play high stakes that we don't even know about. Like playing golf for $500 000. Yes, Ivey loves to play golf, and win money while doing it.

Fakiry is on to something that I, too am trying develope on a smaller scale in my home-town. Utilizing bankrolling, affiliate advertising (conceptual/ feduciary proping, staking,...) and the fellowship of gaming, one could, with the cooperation of their fellowes, create a private economy of sorts for any purpose conceivable. For myself, a continuing eduction/ job retraining facility is a real and workable goal (praise the example of our most indubitable mob-crew). Onward! Through the fog!
