If it's in a live setting I'd give a slight edge to Deng's online more towards polk but it's hard to know both are good so variance could end up deciding things and polk hasn't played in a while, so it depends when it is!
This gone be an interesting match , If i had to pick one of them i would pick Daniel Negreanu . I've meet him once when he came in my country to play a tournament , and i had the chance to talk to him for a couple of minutes , great man . So all the way Kidpoker
Negreanu tried to cast himself as the underdog during this weeks DAT podcast. On paper that is true but Negreanu has a lot more current experience than Polk, who has literally played nothing for the past few years. If I had to bet I would say Polk, but Negreanu is very, very uptight about Polk to I might put it a closer run thing than people think.
Polk for the win. He has too much experience heads up, he'll be able to exploit Negreanu's play to where it's going to be very polarized. Negreanu is going to need a ton of luck and make some bold hero calls to win this one.
Although I like Negreanu, I think Doug Polk will win. Doug Polk is very famous in heads up high stake. I heard he spent a lot of time analyzing heads up games and has become one of the best players in the world. Doug Polk has not only experience but also the best skills in heads up, it is very difficult for Negreanu to beat him.
Without hesitation Doug Polk is a HU specialist and I think he has an advantage in this match. If it were tournaments Negreanu would have the advantage but this is not the case, so I would choose WCGrider
re: Poker & Daniel Negreanu vs Doug Polk - Who do you think will win?
I really think the format favors Doug so I think he will win the match. I would not be surprised if DNegs wins though. This format is in Dougs wheelhouse while Dnegs is more of a mixed game guy from what I remember about him. Advantage Doug Polk.
Can we all agree that they are both very good players and whomever wins- it doesn't really matter or mean much. We all win and loose at poker throughout a poker session and we often put our chips in the middle on a coinflip. Maybe Doug is trying to refuel some imaginary competition so he can get some press about himself or poker. A'' poker duel'' draws people's attention and interest. Even if Negreanu looses what does it really mean? GG poker are using emoji's with his face so that's probably the epitome of making it in poker, not some ego duel.
