Two YouTube millionaires, Ludwig and “MrBeast” may face off again in a high-stakes, wild poker duel. In the 2021 showdown, Jimmy (“Mr. Beast”) emerges victorious, Ludwig hopes for a rematch, and the two discuss plans for a new challenge.
In a recent YouTube live broadcast, Ludwig shared his intention to host a new challenge. During the live broadcast, Ludwig and “Mr. Beast” discussed the possibility of hosting the challenge at Jimmy’s house, thus eliminating the need for travel. Ludwig recommends buying “100,000,” but the exact amount has not yet been determined.
Ludwig competed against his colleagues, who have nearly 233 million followers on Google Video alone, to win the $200 Prize/400 Blinds NLH game, which pays out $25,000 per player.
MrBeast defeated his poker hero Hellmuth.
Conversations also indicate that the format will be different this time, going from heads-up tournaments to full nine-player tables with repurchases allowed. Ludwig mentioned the possibility of inviting another well-known player, mentioning Alan Keating, who had previously lost $1 million in a game that MrBeast was involved in.
“MrBeast,” as he is known not only for his success on YouTube, but also for his poker skills has proven to be a formidable opponent. Hellmuth announced on his social media that in 2021 he defeated the legendary Phil Hellmuth in a $10,000 heads-up match.
The date and final details for the event have yet to be confirmed, but the challenge is expected to take place within the next six months, according to Ludwig’s statement during the event’s livestream.
