I been a cardschat freeroll club member for years.. and still not considered a member.(won't let me play freerolls yet I'm better then them in real money games bust thats besides the point lol smh) Anyways here a good topic so I can maybe become a member someday!!!
I still think Daniel Negreanu is better then Doug Polk, what are your thoughts?
I have a lot of respect for both. They have significant accomplishments. As far as the recent feud, DNegs anger was justified though he should know better than to be reactive. Polks video was hilarious but he should have left 'blackface' out of the title as it appears that his goal was to get DNegs cancelled.
I thought poker was above this cancel culture behavior but I guess I was mistaken. We all need to lighten up a bit.

+1 Negreanu is one of my favorite poker players. Obviously everyone has ups and downs and get emotional at times, but overall I find Doug Polk's humor a bit too off-putting. He comes across as too arrogant for my liking and most of Polk's videos are just click-bait in my opinion. I'll click a Polk video and expect a great hand to be played and just get more like a standard play. Nah, I'm +1 for D-Negs

To be fair, I think most of us would NOT want to sit at the same table as Doug Polk or Daniel Negreanu if we are trying to win and follow disciplined table selection. Both of these players are accomplished poker pros and I respect the ability of both.
I'd be more inclined to be at a table with Negreanu though. His hand reading ability is just awe-inspiring at times, but I'd be just basically paying for the experience.
Both are exceptional high stakes players. Polk has a more mathematical, analytical style, while Negreanu is more old school, but who would win, I wouldn't like to bet either way.
They are both loud mouths, but Negreanu, for me, is a much more likeable amiable guy. Polk is looking for reactions and is happy to create animosity or just be generally outrageous in order to pedal his own career.
It's not the outcome of the hand that's important; it's how you got there that defines whether you played it well or not.
