We recap some stories you may have missed including a huge PKO event and how much of himself is Landon Tice playing for?

KidPoker vs the Poker Brat?

We hinted at it last week and now it seems confirmed that Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth will play heads-up.

Namely, how much does the poker wunderkind Landon Tice have invested in himself? Rumours circulated that he is playing for just 10% of himself in this challenge where he is already paying Bill Perkins $720,000 to play.

It did lead to one player bagging almost $60,000 for their troubles including $18,651.13 in bounties alone:
