Bill Perkins Challenges Byron Kaverman To Complete $50K Ironman Triathlon

If you have had enough of prop bets between Bill Perkins and Dan Bilzerian lately (wherein Dan had to bike from Las Vegas to Los Angeles within 48 hours, which Dan won $600K), then you would be curious to know which one is next on Bill Perkins' list.

Byron Kaverman is now in the limelight, and this time, Bill bet $50,000 dollars, challenging Byron that he must complete an Ironman challenge in 13 hours or less.

Byron has not yet officially responded on Twitter, but if you read Bill's tweet, it suggests that the bet is definitely on, with Byron having a total of 6 months to prepare for what looks like a very extreme physical challenge that not everyone (or anyone in that matter) can pull off so easily.

About Byron Kaverman
Byron Kaverman has earned more than $7.2 million in live tournament winnings. Some people in the pro poker world think that Byron may only be doing this to challenge his machismo.

About Bill Perkins

There are so many hobbies in this world, which keep people happy. It looks like Bill Perkins' hobby is quite different from normal, as he is known for his wide array of prop bets with millionaire poker players, unlike most hedge fund managers who have excess money and donate them to charitable causes.

In his past prop bets, he lost a significant amount of money:
Jeff Gross - $550,000 for the rainbow tattoo on his neck
Antonio Esfandiari - $50,000 for lunging all the way through the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA)
Dan Bilzerian - $600,000 for bicycling from Las Vegas to Los Angeles
Brian Rast - $600,000, same challenge as Dan Bilzerian's but with less training time and more miles to cover

Bill Perkins loves to slam challenges into people's faces that a short while after he dropped the bomb on Byron Kaverman, he tweeted that he is willing to pay $20,000 to anyone who can correctly identify the person behind the account on Instagram named @lovesongbytesla.

Basic Info about the Ironman
Ironman is a triathlon that is normally completed by mentally focused and physically prepared individuals. It is comprised of the following 3 things: swimming for 2.4 miles (at times accompanied by man-eating sharks), bicycling for 112 miles, and marathon running for 26.2 miles.

Hawaii is the host of the Ironman World Championships. Contestants have 17 hours to finish the ordeal. According to statistics, over 40,000 people who participated in this triathlon revealed their overall average race time was 12 hours and 35 minutes.

Craig Alexander of Australia holds the record of 8 hours 3 minutes and 56 seconds, while Mirinda Carfrae of Australia holds the record for fastest female at 8 hours 52 minutes and 14 seconds.

Now that you know a bit about the Ironman, imagine the work cut out for Byron as he has to complete the course in just 13 hours. It seems like Bill Perkins is tired of losing from these outrageous prop bets, and the challenge he dropped on Byron Kaverman looks like the toughest of the bunch so far.

"Ironman"? Is that a name of a movie? Oh, ok, now I know what the "Ironman" is.
"Ironman" seems to be a different form of triathlons comprised of swimming for 2.4 miles, bicycling for 112 miles, and running for 26.2 miles.
Best of luck to those who will be participating in this ordeal.
