A little bit of a teaser Monday night courtesy of Phil Hellmuth, who left his followers hanging with the tweet "Big news coming".


That "big news" is what should be an epic match between Hellmuth and Tom Dwan.

"This Thursday, @phil_hellmuth takes on @TomDwan in High Stakes Duel III Round 4. It's an $800,000 match and the biggest yet! Watch it on @PokerGO."

Hellmuth is the World Series record bracelet winner at 16.  He's won $26,000,000 in career live tournaments.

As of March 2019, Dwan's total live tournament winnings exceed $3.1 million, however, he is believed to have won a significant amount online over the past 15 years.

Dwan has been mentioned of late as part of a wider discussion on poker cheaters.  Poker pro Daniel Cates continues to claim Dwan owes him money as part of a long standing dispute spanning over a decade.

Hellmuth himself has been in the news of late following a series of embarassing outbursts at the tables, the latest of which he apologized for.

Followers of Hellmuth's alluded to the matter via Twitter.

"So many questions to be answered. If @TomDwan wins will he use the money to pay off any of his countless debts? Will @phil_hellmuth last 11.5 minutes before making his first eye rollingly jackass statement? I’m gonna say no and no. But inquiring minds def wanna know."
