Bill Perkins intends to hold a tournament with a $100MM guarantee
Bill Perkins is a multi-millionaire and a poker player. His name often appears in the headline news pertaining to various prop bets on large amounts of money. This time Bill wants to be remembered for a completely different reason. The millionaire intends to hold a poker tournament with a guarantee of $100 000 000.
As soon as Perkins came up with this idea, he immediately posted a questionnaire for further discussions on his Twitter account:
The WSOP Main Event 2006 is a record one in the history of poker. There were 8 773 people to take part in the event. The entries formed a prize pool of $82 000 000. Jamie Gold, a player who became the winner that day, received $12 000 000 for finishing first.
Who knows whether Bill will succeed in realizing his venture, but the guy already attracted many people and got a lot of commentaries under the post.
