Byron Kaverman To Complete Ironman Event For $50k

Hedge Fund manager Bill Perkins has been proposing a multitude of prop bets recently in which he offers one of his poker buddies a chance to win thousands of dollars in return for them completing a particularly arduous and physical demanding feat. Past examples include Antonio Esfandiari winning $50k for lunging everywhere for 48 hours, and Brian Rast and Sam Abernathy earning $600k and $10k respectively for cycling from Las Vegas to L.A within a limited period of time.
Now, Byron Kaverman has become the latest poker pro to be offered a demanding wager by the millionaire businessman, and ‘all’ he has to do to collect $50,000 in prop bets is complete an Ironman Triathlon event within a 13 hour time frame. Fortunately, Kaverman will have 6 months to prepare for the gruelling task which involves a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile cycle, before wrapping proceedings up with a final 26.2 mile run. While participants are given just 17 hours to complete the race, for some reason Kaverman and Perkins agreed on a limit four hours below the usual figure, and as Perkins tweeted:
“@ByronKaverman has less than 6 months to complete an Ironman in less than 13hrs. @tsarrast and I wish him luck @PokerNews 50k on the line!”
While Kaverman begins to come to terms with the reality of his challenging wager, Perkins, in the meantime,  has already thrown yet another juicy bet out, this time to anyone who is able to identify the person behind the Instagram account @lovesongbytesla. As Perkins tweeted:
“20k to the person who can correctly identify the person behind the instagram account @lovesongbytesla #NoJoke #CredIsGold”
With the 2016 WSOP currently getting underway in Las Vegas, the poker community can expect to hear about more a more crazy prop bets being offered over the next few weeks.
