Round 2 of High Stakes Duel is set to take center stage from inside the PokerGO Studio on Wednesday, September 23, at 9 p.m. ET, with Phil Hellmuth looking to defend his Round 1 victory over Antonio Esfandiari.
Both Hellmuth and Esfandiari will be playing a $200,000 heads-up duel with the winner moving onto Round 3, and the loser having the first option to challenge. If he declines, then the challenger’s seat is open and Round 3 will see two players battling over $400,000.
Prior to Round 1, Nick Schulman hosted The Weigh-In where he sat with both Hellmuth and Esfandiari to discuss the impending duel, as well as their own, and their opponent’s skills and accomplishments. Schulman returns for Round 2 | The Weigh-In where he previews the upcoming Round 2 match between these two poker legends.
Schulman comes in hot with the questions for both Hellmuth and Esfandiari – and both players don’t shy away from throwing a few jabs at each other in anticipation for Round 2 of High Stakes Duel.
