Phil Galfond in Million Dollar Challenge

Tags: Barack Obama, Challenge, OMGClayAiken, Phil Galfond.
Posted on 27 March 2009 by "M".

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.

Nice idea to promote himself.
Sure 1 billion is a big prize and I would really like if Obama beat him in a heads-up.
But I'm sure he won't find any challenger

Why not? Those politicians can afford to lose a buck.

If any politician disagrees to take part in this advertising company the site of this person will very strongly rise. Good promotion for a site.
