Whether this is some sort of practical joke, this most recent Youtube video of Doug "WCGRider" Polk slamming a US$5 million heads-up challenge on Tom "durrrr" Dwan's face looks like it's going to be a very interesting spectacle, should it happen.
As we all know, Tom Dwan has just made a comeback in the poker limelight, and his first public appearance after a few years off-screen was on the ‘Poker After Dark' TV program. After the 3-day show, he was spotted at the Aria Casino in Vegas playing high-stakes poker games with Bobby Baldwin and Dan Bilzerian. Dwan is slowly but surely easing back into the poker scene, even proving that his poker skills have not faded away when he won a $700,000 pot on the first day of Poker After Dark against Antonio Esfandiari. It seems like Tom Dwan is going to have another challenge of epic proportions, in the form of Doug Polk.
On his Youtube video post dated September 5, Polk said, "This is serious. I am challenging Tom Dwan to play heads up for $5 million. My poker career is dying. I don't care if people think that I'm jealous. I need to silence the haters once and for all, earn the respect I deserve, and finally start getting some views on YouTube."
In his video, Polk seems very serious on this, and he is now waiting for Dwan's response. Polk even said if Dwan accepts, he could also set up a live stream for this challenge.
He even issued the challenge on Twitter...
Will Dwan accept this challenge? Let us know what you think, mobsters!
