Abstract: Let $ K$ be a continuum on $ {\mathbb{C}}$ and let $ g_{\Omega (K)}(z,\infty )$ be the Green's function of $ \Omega (K)=\overline {{\mathbb{C}}}\setminus K$. In a recent paper, V. Totik proved that $ g_{\Omega (K)}(z_0,\infty )$
$ \le C\,dist(z_0,\infty )^{1/2}$ with some non-sharp constant $ C$ depending only on the diameter of $ K$. He also used this inequality to prove new results on polynomial approximation in $ \mathbb{C}$. In this note we prove a sharp version of Totik's inequality and discuss a conjectural sharp lower bound for $ g_{\Omega (K)}(z_0,\infty )$.
