<a href="http://www.rakerace.com/news/poker-players/hungarian-poker-pro-accepts-good2cu-cage-challenge/"><strong>As we reported 2 days ago</strong></a>, a Hungarian poker pro accepted <strong>Andrew Robl</strong>'s cage fight challenge he posted on his blog on March 16. Apparently Mr. Robl was too scared of the Hungarian, and wants to play against high stakes players he knows. We all know why.
"I was planning on doing a $50,000 cage fight with Sorel Mizzi come WSOP time - but Sorel backed out of the bet. He’s had enough problems recently without having to worry about my fists breaking his face. Sorel has always been a great guy in my experience - and I certainly hope the rumors about him aren’t true. If they are he made a huge mistake - and I only hope he makes amens and learns from the experience. If any beginning fighter wants to make a wager on a fight - let me know!" - Robl wrote on March 16.

The Hungarian pro didn't hesitate much, he accepted the offer, and expressed he's willing to wager the $50,000. Soon Robl answered by email:

"The chances of me fighting someonewho isn't a high-stakes gambler I know personally or has a well known reputation is about 0%. This way by no means an open challenge and seeing I haven't yet spoken to d0npelo this interview seems quite premature. I am already talking to some well known high-stakes pros about doing the fight."


Despite the fact that Robl said he's taking ANY beginning fighter who wants to wager money; he cowardly backed out of the bet, and has shown the world how huge a phoney he is. D0npelo is a winning mid-stakes poker pro, who has been training Jiu Jitsu for some time, but at MMA he's a beginner, just like Robl. Clearly the Hungarian was an excellent challenger, fulfilling all the requirements. Since this wasn't enough for Andrew 'PoopedMyPants' Robl, we can only think of one thing only: It's not the fight and the challenge this whole setup is about, but the money, the marketing value of such an event. Victory Poker's pro must be following his sponsor's orders, whose interest are, of course, to have their most prominent pro "fight" against a well-known high-stakes pro. That would only involve kissing and caressing in the cage, which would be a disgrace to the sport as we know it.

Maybe Robl was thinking about a fight like this

Of course, it's not at all surprising to hear him chicken out; his "challenge" was a joke from the very beginning. He should have described the conditions of such a fight taking place, for example which weight group he's taking and could have included his most recent claim as well, namely the challenger needs to be a well-known high-stakes pro, who represents a high marketing value.

But it's also easy to understand why today's biggest PLO fish didn't do so: he proved many times already that it doesn't take much intelligence to make it to the high stakes... maybe he gets mocked for a reason on the PokerStars Big Game...
