VIDEO: Tony G and Phil Hellmuth Negotiate Triathlon Terms at World Poker Tour Malta

Last week, Tony G announced that he would compete in a "triathlon" against Phil Hellmuth at the World Poker Tour stop in Malta.

The two will not be competing in a triathlon in the popular form of swimming, cycling and running. The two will compete in basketball, swimming and cycling.

Tony G told the PartyPoker Blog, “I suggested these three disciplines and am surprised Phil accepted them. It’s not as if I have been at the Olympics with the Lithuanian National basketball team is it? I have the edge in basketball. He may have a chance at the bike riding though because he is sent on his bike frequently. As for swimming, unless he is attached to the back side of Michael Phelps like he usually is, I feel I am a favorite.”

What are the terms of the "triathlon?" Watch the video below to find out.
