Ben “milkybarkid” Grundy is back from a break from the online world and is proving he means business. The online whiz has stated that he plans to take on Viktor Blom in the PokerStars SuperStar Showdown on the basis that they play PLO only.

Grundy says, “We had some epic run-ins on iPoker if the rumours of his IDs are true before, so it should be a fun match.”

The Brit’s online results graphs which show the magnitude of his winnings have come under scrutiny and criticism. Grundy addresses this in his recent blog, “Another thread has come up on 2+2, with some people challenging the validity of my lifetime results at PLO. Its just become boring now so i’ve issued the following bet.”

Grundy then describes the terms of the bet he’s offering. He says, "If i can’t prove beyond doubt that i’ve won at least $5,000,000 I’ll pay out $60,000. If i can prove beyond dount that i’ve won at least $5,000,000 I win only $30,000.

“To motivate me to get closer to the $8 million in winnings, i’d like a bonus of $20,000 for each addition million proved. So if i prove $5,100,000 for example i win $30,000. I win $50,000 if i prove between $6,000,000 and $7,000,000 etc [sic]”

Poker fans now await the day Grundy faces down Blom for what is bound to be a very interesting duel.
