Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth have actually struck the news headlines again. This time around with a brilliant High Roller tournament bet worth $400k to the Poker Brat if they can show a revenue from playing 50 for the Aria’s $25k events that are buy-in
Bet offered and accepted:
I’m laying $400k to @phil_hellmuth $200k that over 50 $ buy that is 25k @AriaLV tournaments that Hellmuth can become at a negative balance.
If he shows a $1 revenue he wins the bet.

$400,000 if Phill Hellmuth can beat the $ ARIA that is 25K
With the pair currently setting out details for their very own highstakes heads-up duel, due to start mid-March, it seems they couldn’t resist a bet on Hellmuth’s tournament prowess to go with it.
However, The catch for Hellmuth is that short-field, elite SHR events are not his normal poker arena – although he has 15 WSOP bracelets and almost $25million in tournament cashes to his name.This despite getting 2-1 odds from his longtime friend and rival does not suggest he’sn’t had some success into the big buy-in events, with a 4(* that is*)th( place at the 2017 Poker Masters $50k at the Aria. The year that is previous came 4th once more, into the Super tall Roller Bowl, a $1.6million money from their $300k buy-in.
A fast trawl through the previous few years’ worth of Aria $25k tournaments shows approximately 20 players part that is taking average, three in the money, with a mean winners’ payout of about $230k.
With a $140k average podium payout, and Hellmuth’s basic buy-ins amounting to $1.25million, he’d have to cash in roughly 20% of his 50 attempts.
Quite how long it would take Phil that is big to the task is not clear, however it’s apt to be at the very least per year even when he manages to relax and play every $25k the Aria puts in.
We have a few a on average month. Summertime and busier times can produce more.

Another professional gambling against Hellmuth
As into the upcoming highstakes duel between Negreanu and Hellmuth, nonetheless, the cash had been fast to be on DNegs, with Bosnian-born poker celebrity Ali Imsirovic Hellmuth that is getting riled…
Hi @aliImsirovic, I didn’t realize you had such a low opinion of my tournament Hold’em skills. Thank you for being honest, much better than having you snipe from the shadows. Let’s see what happens over the next 10 years in NoLimHold’em tourneys, and specifically, in $ buy that is 25K https://t.co/skTyMmYv1A

The fans are hoping that the comment that is 10-year a nod at his own enviable longevity in poker rather than Phil’s assessment of how long it will take him to complete the challenge.
Some were quick to point out that Phil could make it a very difficult bet for Negreanu to collect on he should have say exactly 24 months or whatever to complete or he owes 100k donation to charity or Daniels choice if they don’t set a timeframe for the challenge…
That’s why . Together with pity of admitting he stalled out to save 100k

…while the ‘Poker Brat’ will have to reflect a few of Imsirovic’s own recent showing that is great the Aria tables, a couple of big wins last week totalling more than $500k…
- There were plenty of Twitter poker followers who had Phil’s back for the challenge, a selection of the comments below…
- ‘Everyone’s sleeping on ya Phil… no clue why, results speak for themselves. Used to be a dnegs fan, but after that interview, team Hellmuth for life’
- ‘If there’s one thing you cannot doubt in this world it’s Phil Hellmuth’s tournament Hold ‘Em skills…though happy you win the WSOP 2-7 Lowball Draw…’‘Somewhat disrespectful to the greatest hold em tournament player of all time I’d say’
