Sorel “Imper1um” Mizzi, a sponsored player of the online poker room Betfair, announced an Iron Man Challenge against Team PokerStars Pro member Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier. They will compete against each other in 17 events. In sixteen events, the winner will take home $10.000 and in the “Main Event”, which will be kick boxing, the winner gets $20.000.

But there’s more to it than that: whoever wins the most individual events will receive a cut of 15% of the other player’s World Series of Poker (WSOP) winnings up to a maximum of $300.000. And if either Sorel Mizzi or Bertrand Grospellier can emerge victorious in 80% or more of the events, they’ll receive an extra $50.000 from the other player.
