From that shortlist Tom Dwan would have been my pick with Phil Ivey a very close second.

Dwan's game is a little hard to read these days as he spends so much time in Macau. I do not believe he plays with the same bravura he did when young and at times even appears quite conservative but he knows how high profile this game will be and that a lot of credibility will be at stake.

However, they really should cue up Phil Ivey for one of these high stakes duels sooner rather than later. Ivey seems to be in a good place after putting his legal issues behind him (largely self inflicted) and appears both chilled personally yet eager to play poker. I believe he is planning quite a serious wsop schedule.

But Tom Dwan against Helmuth next- I'll take it!

I think this should be fun! They do have a bit of history, too!

This was a few years ago but pretty good TV. :)

Tom Dwan Finally Gets a Heads-Up Match Against Phil Hellmuth

I have that clip on file (hysterical) as well as Helmuth's classic four hand run-in with Dani Stern who completely cleans his clock.

But my favorite clip is one now removed from You Tube where Tiffany Michelle interviews Helmuth after losing a big hand in Monte Carlo. Unfortunately, Helmuth in an attempt to explain his run bad mentions how he also lost $536,000 to Phil Ivey the night before playing Chinese poker.

Tiffany Michelle instead of expressing sympathy to the all too earnest Helmuth can't contain herself and cracks up in the most adorable way (she is actually chewing gum the entire time) at the ludicrous nature of Helmuth's explanation. It's an absolute gem.

*sorry tried to upload the clip from my computer but it just keeps informing me upload error.

I'm with you, given their history on the pokerstars Big Game, it would make for very compelling poker. I don't know how Tony G's game is presently, but I'm pretty sure he'd be very fired up to play Hellmuth and will DEFINITELY bring his A-Game, both poker and talk to the match.

Dwan's interesting because he can be chatty in the right spot, but I'm not sure how the dynamic would be between he and Hellmuth simply because of the age difference between the two. At least with Tony G, they are close in age.

Tom Dwan vs. Phil Hellmuth is a loud sign. And this sign can turn out to be louder than the game itself as a whole.
