This was never meant to be a public challenge but the fact that there is $1 million on the line and everything being so secret is a bit frustrating. Patrik Antonius and Rui Cao have battled for the second part of their challenge - $350.000 PLO. Apparently, they have also started the third part of the challenge of NL Hold'em but neither of the players has said anything whether the challenge has been completed.
All we can say now is that Patrik Antonius got his revenge on the PLO after losing 2-7 Triple Draw to Cao last week.
