For the past several weeks, Doug Polk has been preparing for his HU grudge match with Daniel Negreanu by playing HU NL cash games with just about all takers from $1/$2 up to $5/$10 online on ACR. (https://www.cardschat.com/forum/poker-news-events-63/daniel-negreanu-vs-doug-polk-who-463834/)

Due to constant cancellations from opponents, he cancelled the vast majority of his matches, but has kept a few on the docket including two time PLO8 wsop bracelet winner Nathan Gamble and Matt Vaughan, a YouTube poker vlogger.

Nathan Gamble wrapped up his $2/$4 HU NL session vs Doug today, booking a win of ~$20.

Doug Polk's match against Matt Vaughan will be on Friday, August 28 from 3-7pm PT (6-10pm ET). They will also play HU NL with blinds of $2/$4 across 2 tables.

While Doug will not be streaming the match, Matt will be streaming the match live on his https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZFCWcm05eudgbd-pLD7slQ, with hole cards up, on NO DELAY.

Why would you advertise streaming with hole cards without delay in a heads up match? Not saying Doug would cheat but anyone in chat could say things to influence play.

Good luck Matt!
Is the 3hrs. a set length of time for the match? ... or is there a certain number of hands you guys are playing?

Because he's playing for practice and stakes that don't matter to him financially. And because I want people to watch it. But anyway I already spoke about it with him. The only real risk is some super fan going directly into the ACR table and chatting info to him. At which point we could involve ACR to try to resolve that somehow.

So far as Doug's integrity is concerned, I have literally zero worries.

Good luck Matt!

4 hours is a rough setup length. I could go a bit longer or shorter depending. But there's no hand requirement - it's just a set start time to make sure we both know when to show up at the tables.

Good luck Matt, I should be around to watch, just subbed to your YT.
