“I’m taking Phil Hellmuth for a dance on the felt”
The Daniel Negreanu vs. Phil Hellmuth heads-up match is dominating the headlines these days, but now another poker legend challenges the Poker Brat: His arch-rival Tony G!
When it’s safer to travel, I’m taking @phil_hellmuth for a dance on the felt.
High stakes Hold’em for charity.
Who can set this up? International TV is a must!

We recently reported that Tony G has resigned from Lithuanian parliament to focus on poker again. Now Tony follows up his words with actions by challenging Phil Hellmuth to a heads-up for rolls.
Daniel Negreanu previously had challenged Phil Hellmuth to play a heads-up grudge match online, but the Poker Brat only wants to play live on High Stakes Duel, which DNegs hasn’t confirmed yet. Now it looks like Tony G is ready to jump in and fill the gap!
“Want to hit the felt with Phil Hellmuth sooner rather than later!”
Moreover, is seems like Tony G wants to speed up things and that he can’t wait to battle his arch-rival:

The Tony G – Phil Hellmuth feud is legendary
At the latest since their appearance and argument on “The Big Game” in 2011 the Tony G vs. Phil Hellmuth feud is absolutely legendary.
Back then, Tony G claimed that he 3-bet preflop without looking at his hand. Hellmuth fell for it and moved All-In just to get shown A♥K♥ by Tony, which had Hellmuth’s A♠J♦ crushed and won Tony a large $62,800 pot.
“You lied!” – “Of course I lied”
The Poker Brat was raging and shouted:
“You lied!” and Tony replied “Of course I lied. It’s poker Phil – what do you think this is?”
After losing the hand, Phil Hellmuth stood up and left frustrated without re-buying, while Tony G shouted: “You don’t belong in this level, Phil” as the Poker Brat was leaving the room.
