Landon Tice has tweeted an update to the conditions for his upcoming heads-up match with Bill Perkins. The pair are due to start their battle in the near future in a challenge that is a little different from what we have become used to over the last year.
News regarding the HU Challenge vs @bp22— Landon (@LandonTice) April 20, 2021
A) Sidebet at 200k 1:1 has been added
B) If 15k hands don’t get played before the start of WSOP due to an arbitrator (@haralabob) saying Bill was the “reason” for it, he pays 100k
C) Can buyout halfway, and the penalty is the sidebet.
Massive Head Start for Bill Perkins
As we reported the match will be played on $200/$400 blinds and the 9bb/100 is what makes this really interesting—over the 20,000 hands match that equates to a $720,000 head start. Can Bill Perkins hang on against what even he admits is the superior player?
HEADS UP FOR SOULS IS ON!— Landon (@LandonTice) February 6, 2021
I battle the Legend @bp22
I pay 9bb/100
More details to come, but BLOOD WILL BE IN THE STREETS 🔥📈
With the side bet things get even more interesting. That’s pretty much a cool $1 million on the line now, even if most of it won’t be Tice’s own money. We’ve heard that as much as 90% of Tice’s action has been sold to backers, but it doesn’t really matter for what this challenge is all about.
Let me make something clear that I'm sure everyone cares about regarding my challenge with @bp22— Landon (@LandonTice) February 11, 2021
I'm selling a lot of action for it. A lot.
I'm not rolled to battle at nosebleeds.
However, I am putting a very large amount of my relative net worth on myself winning it.
