I had to re-watch this since your reply surprised me. Does Hellmuth fire flop+turn with air often enough (four handed on the flop, no less) that Dwan would think sixes could be good there? I thought he planned to check/raise-bluff the river.Edit: Missed that Dwan was on the button, Hellmuth OOP though he's left of Dwan. What SuperJon said below, then.Another question on the Dwan-Hellmuth heads-up challenge. It's been mentioned several times later and Dwan just says "maybe" without giving out any more. Do you know if they've agreed not to play? Or even discussed the matter?And a comment on the Negreanu-Dwan heads-up challenge
Don't do anything absurd like 100k hands 2-tabling. It would take you 700 hours of play and likely a decade or more total.
In Hellmuth's mind he has nothing to gain from a HU match with Durrr. Hellmuth sees himself as the most important poker player in the world, and Durrr as just a young internet punk who could come and go. If Hellmuth wins he's see it as "expected" which is delusional obviously, but if Durrr wins he'd be embarrassed. It's also a lot of money, and PH doesn't really gamble high or have the bankroll to play with Durrr.
