Phil Hellmuth loves making different bets and the last two of them are related to tennis and basketball. First, the poker player successfully shot the basketball hoop from a long distance and then he showed the great game on the tennis court.
The other day, Phil decided to make a bet related to his main occupation - poker. Price of the matter: $500 000.
Rob Yong challenged me to FIVE $100,000 Heads Up No Limit Hold’em matches, 100BB deep, w a 50 minute clock (to taise the blinds), I accepted - who wins?— phil_hellmuth (@phil_hellmuth) 5 квітня 2019 р.
Hellmuth has impressive experience of heads-up performing. In 2005, he even won the National Heads-Up Championship, having beaten Chris Ferguson in the final battle. However, eight years later, The Poker Brat lost to Mike Matusow in a similar event.

Rob Yong is also not an easy contender since the poker player often participates in high-stakes games. Either way, it will be a very interesting confrontation, and all this action will take place at the Dusk Till Dawn casino.
Other professional poker players reacted to Phil's tweet about the deal and Shaun Deeb is even willing to make a bet for the challenge:
I’m willing to bet on it I want rob— on hiatus (@shaundeeb) 5 квітня 2019 р.
Mike Sexton, a chairman of Partypoker, couldn’t also pass by this challenge. Here is what the guy wrote on his Twitter page:
