Things were looking up back in 2017 when Jungleman revealed he was in talks with Dwan to play a additional hands of the challenge, after Doug Polk called the challenge the “biggest scam in poker history.” However, the talks didn’t come to anything—at least that has publicly been revealed—with zero hands being played in the past five years.
