Seems like such a long silly feud. Only wish they were playing for more $$. HU4ROLLZ

I am so unreasonably psyched for this. I think Polk probably has the edge, but it's going to be a hell of a show if there's a way to watch their tables.

To me, it looks like this is mostly Doug taking shots at Daniel over the years. Daniel has never really engaged him in the back and forth. As for when they do play, Doug has the edge. If you read Daniel's blog (link is below), he makes the following points that I wanted to highlight here:

Doug's specialty is HUNL, Daniel hasn't really studied it in depth.
Doug's specialty is on the internet, cash game format, where blinds don't change.

You HAVE to think that Doug will have people watching Daniel's play and picking his game apart to give Doug an even bigger edge.

That being said, it should make for must-see Poker TV.

This will be a very interesting confrontation. I wonder who will take on the role of the obvious aggressor in this heads-up. I think it is the Hyper aggressive style that will bring success in this game, I am sure that the distance will be decent, since these two players will not agree to a quick denouement and will not want to admit their defeat.:fight:

Looking forward to it, seems like there’s more than just a poker title at stake, should make for an interesting match indeed

Will be an interesting story although the end results will be much less important as they don't really tell you something more than what happened between 2 poker opponents playing a specific format at a specific set of blinds for a set amount of hands. Daniel has always been a more likeable personality while Doug always seems to be a more polarizing figure who doesn't really seem to be trying to make the world a better place as his larger end game goal.

odds are likely that Doug will win but I'll be cheering for Daniel.

I'm backing DNegs 100%, Polk's a chump.

Really hope to be able to watch!

Wonder if they are going to get staked, or use their own cash? Is their 'feud' for real, or is it a marketing ploy? Hope it isn't a long drawn-out event...

Timing is everything. If this match happened would have happened two years ago, then this would be super exciting. Now, I can only think why is this happening, and does it really matter now. I remember Doug leaving so why come back for an old feud with Dnegs. Just weird.

Don't think it'd be that interesting since doug isn't in the poker scene anymore but would love to see him annhilate negreanu.

I look forward to hearing the details of this HU duel , when it is going to happen . i hope Doug take it down ,
lol , maybe Doug says sth about him , Daniel goes crazy and smash his teeth or break him an****y , you never know , now that Daniel has a built body , with or without testosterones , he is on tension , ready to go on berserk . Doug should take some precautions , hire some bodyguards , maybe let them wear t-shirts with slogans for the breaking teeth , bullying , a**l breaking thing , lol ....

I'm looking forward to this, as well. I guess we will have to wait till the wsop online series has completed and stay tuned as to when this challenge will be scheduled - sounds like later in September to early October.

Battle to watch

I believe daniel will be the better player by far but this is a heads up match witch in the end i think luck will play a big role in who wins. That said i would put my money on daniel i think Polk is washed up and out already.

The game is Polk's specialty so he should win. I have no doubt that Daniel will hire a coach and get up to speed fast to make it a good match. I'd bet on Polk but rooting for DNegs.
