Hellmuth has won seven consecutive High Stakes Duel matches against Antonio Esfandiari, and then Daniel Negreanu, and most recently Fox Sports 1’s Nick Wright. After sweeping Esfandiari and Negreanu, he cashed out the $400,000 prize pool on each occasion, before collecting the $100,000 prize pool against Wright. Now it’s Dwan’s turn to try and pump the brakes on this runaway freight train that is Hellmuth’s High Stakes Duel winning streak.
Both players have squared off on numerous occasions with their most noticeable being on the 2008 National Heads-Up Championship where Dwan cracked Hellmuth’s aces with pocket tens in the first round. Will Dwan be able to find that kind of luck this week, or will Hellmuth finally claim his revenge against durrrr?
