Everyone loves a good prop bet, especially one that involves poker endurance, a good deal of money and the result is not clear cut on which way it’ll go down. Noted Brazillian PLO sicko Marcelo “Urubu” Freire, who has a reputation as being a degenerate of the highest order and a guy who loves to flip for big bucks, has whipped up a challenge for himself that has big name players lining up to bet against him.
Urubu’s challenge is pretty straight forward: in 45 days he needs to play at least 500,000 hands of PLO at 1/2, 2/4 or 3/6 and he needs to be profitable at the end. No Zoom poker allowed, no big flips. So he’ll be grinding the standard play tables day and night, trying to get mad volume in while playing optimally.
As soon as it posted players poured in to take his action, even at 2:1. That includes 26k from Christian 'charder30’ Harder, 5k from SCOOP bracelet winner “DonkPredator” and another 10k from André “Sira Al Aziz” Santos.
