Matchroom Sport and Tom Dwan announce “Durrrr Million Dollar Challenge”

Matchroom Sport, the World’s leading producers and distributers of televised poker, are delighted to announce the launch of the “Durrrr Million Dollar Challenge” in London this September.

Tom “Durrrr” Dwan has become a phenomenon in the last 12 months and is now widely regarded as the most feared cash game player in the World.

The challenge will see Dwan take on four opponents over 500 hands each in a live heads up match up. Each player will buy into the challenge for $500,000 and the blinds will be set at $500/$1000 with each opponent being offered the preference of Pot-limit Omaha or No-Limit Hold’em. No player can leave the contest until either the 500 hands are up or the player has bust.

Eddie Hearn, Managing Director of Matchroom Sport commented “We have been lucky enough over the Years to promote the biggest names in many sports and Tom is without doubt the biggest draw in poker right now. He is totally fearless and ready to take on any player that is willing to face-off in the Million Dollar match up. This will be the most hotly anticipated match up in modern day poker.”

Dwan, who has estimated on-line winnings in excess of $10 million, is excited by the challenge. “I am looking forward to sitting down and playing some of the World’s best players live in London. There looks to be lots of interest in people wanting to play me but they never seem to appear on-line. It will be interesting to see the response Eddie gets and just who is willing to get it on.”

Details of the opponents facing off in the Durrrr Million Dollar Challenge will be released over the coming weeks.
