What a great idea and i cant wait to see who comes out on top. I would definitely make the loser play 1000 hands of micro stakes and it will be interesting to see what the public choose

This is just a show match,required by their sponsor
With news of his heads-up challenge with Viktor Blom currently filtering through the community, Gus Hansen was able to ride a wave of adrenaline straight to the top of the high stakes leaderboard last night.
Over the course of 1,011 hands, the Dane managed to rake in an impressive $482,852 to lead the likes of Chun Lei Zhou and 'AckmaJin' on the latest profit chart.
That look a day at the office for a Pro player

lmfao- 1000 hands at $0.05/$0.10 is such a sacrifice... i'm sure we will see a new pop star very soon.

actually would be fun format to play amongst mobbits: BRM HU Showdown. this would be a hit- same rules best of 3 (one game of each players choice and one picked by voting in the poll)...

Go Gus! I support Gus Hansen. He is talented and special. I know Bloom is younger and probably more talented but Gus is something very nice part of the bright past side of classic poker not that classic than Doyle for example but classic in some parts. I like his play so much.
