Eccentric Lithuanian poker player Tony G has gone on camera issuing a challenge to fellow professional Phil Hellmuth for 10 days of heads up poker, whilst dressed as a baby, presumably to provoke the American Hellmuth into accepting. It is not yet known what Hellmuth's response is.

Tony G, whom resides in Melbourne, Australia, has finished in the money 15 times in the World Series of Poker throughout his career and claims to be willing to risk 1 million euro's on the match, which equates to $1.35 million.

Hellmuth, on the other hand, definitely has the more prestige with 84 World Series of Poker finishes in the money, with 45 final tables and 11 wins so it may turn out that Tony G thinks better of his challenge and withdraws it should Hellmuth accept.

If the match did occur, it would most likely take place on Party Poker, the site which sponsors Tony G, as Hellmuth's sponsor Ultimate bet has recently ceased to offer any form of poker games amongst allegations of fraud and money laundering by the American Government.
