This is a discussion on Daniel Negreanu vs Doug Polk pre-game analysis within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; Once the 'grudge match' begins we will create another thread for updates. But, for now, Jon Sofen offers his thoughts on this matchup.
Both agree and disagree with the game and skill assessment. They both have specific skills that give them an edge. If the skills are equal then it would be luck that decided the outcome. They are close enough in skill that luck will play a major roll in this fight. Only player reading ability can trump GTO, and luck, at their level. Avoiding the loosing end of coolers will be important. Aggression and adaptability will also be key.
