But he will get curiosity from the mistaken Phil……
2021 clearly is the yr of the heads-up grudge match in poker, particularly in case your title is Phil.
Poker’s all-time cash chief Bryn Kenney hit the Twitter streets over the weekend to publicly problem Phil Hellmuth to a $1 million heads-up match:
What’s all this white magic and apexpredator shit I’m listening to @Phil_hellmuth . We know who’s king of the hill, however if you would like your shot on the high let’s put up 1,000,000 every and provides the folks what they need

Perhaps it’s the prelude to a prearranged High Stakes Duel on PokerGO, or maybe Kenney smelt blood after seeing Hellmuth’s efficiency in opposition to Daniel Negreanu final week. Either means he did not get the end result he was anticipating, as one other Phil, Phil Galfond, was steered as a substitute. Kenney made a (now deleted) remark about how he wouldn’t wish to play Galfond on his personal website Run It Once, which result in this response from Galfond:

Kenney shortly backed out, suggesting he was too busy (although wasn’t too busy for Hellmuth) and that he would relatively Luke Schwartz play Galfond first. Galfond made it very clear that he was completely satisfied to play Kenney every time he needed, declaring he has not backed out of any problem.
Hellmuth vs Negreanu Round 2
Kenney doubled down once more over the weekend suggesting it may very well be a charity match as a substitute:
Fine since folks assume I’m right here for myself or to show one thing, if @phil_hellmuth accepts the 1m$ problem I’ll donate 100% of the win to charity, 10k to 100 completely different locations I really feel are serving to the world. Bang bang

No response but from Mr Hellmuth however he has his ongoing match with Daniel Negreanu to consider. Indeed, Negreanu confirmed that he would have a rematch in opposition to Hellmuth for double the stakes on this breakdown video the place, as soon as once more, he didn’t have many sort phrases for Hellmuth’s sport:
