Doug Polk vs Daniel Negreanu heads-up challenge

Categories: bets, live poker, online poker Posted on 3 Nov 2020 138 1

Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu are days out from one of the longest-standing poker feuds, and viewers will get to see the first part of the game live from the PokerGo Studio on Nov. 4. 

The majority of the No-Limit Hold'em heads-up challenge will take place online at, but the poker pros have decided to launch the match offline as opposed to a virtual poker table. Polk, he said on Twitter, only agreed to the stipulation if fans could access it for free. So, on the PokerGo app, Twitter , and Facebook, Poker Central has obliged and will air the first 200 hands of the $200/$400 cash game competition free of charge to viewers.

Clearly, Negreanu would like to play most of the match live, if not all of it. Although Polk, an online heads-up legend, decided, for apparent motives, to sweat it out on the internet. They decided to launch it from the Las Vegas PokerGo Studio, a slight concession.

Nevertheless, the heads-up match will normally take place online between the feuding pros, where Polk thrives. They decided to play at least 12,500 high-stakes NLH cards, and just 200 of them would be treated at a physical casino, or 1.6 percent. The game may have finished at 25,000 paws. It all depends on the losing player's decision after 12,500 hands have been completed. If the player at the stage who is down decides to leave, they have a right to do so. Or, the person can prefer to demand that another 12,500 hands be played.
