The poker world anticipates the next round of the epic heads-up High Stakes Duel with Phil Hellmuth, the player with the most WSOP gold bracelets.
Phil has won nine of these duels and has only lost one, against the American poker player Tom Dwan. However, Hellmuth swiftly retaliated and resumed his winning run.
Hellmuth claimed after his win against Scott Seaver that he was up against a formidable opponent, and it is conceivable that this prompted Seaver to play harder. On August 22, a rematch of $1,600,000 (each $800,000) was scheduled to take place.

Siver, however, quickly changed his mind and declined a rematch with Helmut. The poker player alluded to “personal reasons” despite the fact that Scott made no particular declarations about this.
The possibility of the following combat turned out to be uncertain, although Hellmuth’s replacement opponent has already been identified. It was the famed poker player Jason Koon of the United States.
Since joining the GGPoker team, Jason Koon has won many major live and online events. He won his first World Series of Poker bracelet late last year.
Now, Kun is prepared to face one of the top tournament competitors. Hellmuth and Kuhn have entirely distinct playing approaches. Phil is unable of regulating his own emotions, in contrast to Jason. It will be a true battle between the GTO and “white magic.”
It seems that Hellmuth was intimidated by his new opponent, since Phil requested a postponement of their match. Most likely, Hellmuth wants to study his opponent’s game in order to be well prepared when they meet.
The exact date for the next round of the High Stakes Duel has not yet been determined, but the poker world can anticipate an epic confrontation between the two extremes.
