Tom Dwan Confirmed as Part of Negreanu vs. Hansen Challenge

Poker pro Daniel Negreanu confirmed late this week that online poker phenom Tom “Durr” Dwan will be taking part in the Negreanu vs. Hansen Challenge or, if you like, the PokerStars vs. Full Tilt Poker Challenge.

Negreanu tweeted: 

Good news (or bad news if you're on @RealKidPoker's team), I spoke with @TomDwan, and he is in to play. Waiting to hear from @ViktorBlom

A simple taunt by Negreanu via Twitter last week has turned into a $300k a full-blown $300,000 heads-up battle between Full Tilt Poker‘s “The Professionals” and members of PokerStars elite “Team Pros” - to be played out live during EPT London next weekend.

In the EPT London challenge each heads-up match will take place on three simultaneous freezeout tables, with the player who wins two out of the three tables taking the individual match. The winning team will be the one that wins two of the three games.

The challenge kicks off on Sunday, March 10th at 10:00 ET (3pm in London).
