The first round of PokerGO’s High Stakes Duel took place back on July 30 with Phil Hellmuth beating Antonio Esfandiari, securing a $100,000 win.

Following nearly a two-month break, Round 2 took place on September 24 with Hellmuth collecting another victory over Esfandiari – this time for $200,000 – and in the video above you can watch the five best hands from Round 2.

Esfandiari again immediately challenged Hellmuth for a rematch for $400,000 – and it will take place on Wednesday, October 21, at 9 p.m. ET exclusively on PokerGO.
