High stakes profile Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond has made a challenge to the President of the United States, Barack Obama and the American Congress. Galfond's challenge consists of heads-up match where he challenges anyone in the Congress to a game of poker. Should the challenger win they would take down a nice $1 Million prize and if they lose they would have to pay Galfond $1.
This challenge is a way to create some buzz for his new website BlueFirePoker, but it is also a way to try to prove to the US government that poker is a game of skill.
So far no one has accepted the challenge and it is highly unlikely that anyone will do it but it would definitely make for an epic heads-up battle.
