Doyle Brunson vs. Patrik Antonius

So amongst the rumor mill is an outstanding challenge that Patrik Antonius has posed to Doyle Brunson.  7-10 games, at 7 figure stakes, and Doyle gets to pick the games.  Yikes.  Apparently, the drama spawned from a quote taken out of context from Doyle that he’d swim a river to play any of the internet players.  Patrik can certainly play in both arenas, and Doyle has acknowledged as much.

Patrik is a monster playing NL HU and PLO, but ANY game?  I dunno, Doyle is a legend that probably invented half the card games out there – I think he’s got the edge here. 

This is Doyles take (from his blog):

I think he made a mistake when he said, “I’ll play him any game for any amount.” I’ve got 7-10 different games, all of which I’ve played in Las Vegas casinos for high stakes, that I’m willing to commit to for at least a seven figure match. There will be no animosity between us; we are both pros who love a good gamble. It will be interesting if he accepts and I’m sure we will both have a great time playing.

Here’s what some of the other pro’s think:

Why doesn’t some producer get all over this – sounds like a pay-per-view event to me.
