Ugly Joke Polk offers Dwan $ 5 Million Challenge
Doug Polk has the blues. In his new video, he complains that all poker topics are grazed and that he is no longer on the heights of poker. This was probably more of a joke. After a few months, he won the $ 111,111 High Roller for One Drop and almost $ 4 million. However, at the end of the clip, he offers Dwan a challenge.
It is to be played heads-up and not more or less than 5 million dollars. It also invites all viewers to support it. Above all, Dwan is to be persuaded, since 5 million dollars are for him according to Polks “below its level”. At the very latest, it is clear that this is not a very serious offer. Last month, it was known that Dwan was involved in the re-release of the popular poker TV series Poker after Dark and that caused a look.
The notorious Durrrr Challenges
Apparently, Polk is envious of the media attention that Dwan gets. The offer of the challenge is to be an allusion to the durrrr challenges in the past. A few years ago, Dwan started two challenges at the height of his poker career: he wanted to play 50,000 hands heads-up against an opponent, and if Dwan should be in the downside, he has to pay him $ 1.5 million. If Dwan is a plus, his opponent must pay only $ 500,000.
Two prominent players accepted the offer. Patrick Antonius lost his home, over 1.8 million dollars he was at the back. After that, Dan was jungleman12 Cates, but the whole pulled itself and suddenly came the black Friday and the total failure of Full Tilt. At this time around 20,000 hands were played and Dwan was already 1.2 million dollars behind. The Second Challenge was never finished.
At the beginning of the year, Doug Polk cited the Challenge against Cates as one of the “biggest fraudulent stories in the history of poker”. Cates defended Dwan and mentioned family and financial problems with Dwan as a reason for the attitude. In fact, Dwan had long disappeared from the scene. The one-time star, who was not afraid to compete against the best players in the world, was one of the best-known faces of the online scene. However, he was a full-tilt contract player from the aforementioned Black Friday.
The question arises whether Polk does not become unpopular with this kind of humor. Dwan had or has apparently problems and to mock him so, Polk could take many from the poker scene evil. Let’s hope that Dwan can fight back and Phil Hellmuth, who prophesied Dwan in 2008, that he had disappeared from the scene in four years is being rebutted.
