I have to admit I was reading through poker news and gossip yesterday and I actually thought this wasn't going to happen after Doug was complaining about how hard it was to pin down the details. I'm really glad the details ended up getting worked out in the past day or so and we have ourselves a good old fashioned Heads Up For Rollz match the way we used to!!

I'm surprised they aren't playing live. They already have Hellmuth and Esfandiari playing live heads up and that was beautifully done! Still going to be interesting to see though.

Hmm. Not to sure if an online 1 v 1 match actually fits Negreanus style and skill. Yet always intresting to get such competition and see who get s the best of it.

Where can we watch it and which time?


I don't think a stream or streaming link has been posted anywhere just yet. But, I do hope if someone has a link to share, by all means, post it here! :)

Can't wait for this to happen. I think Polk will be more aggressive and win more hands while Negreanu will be betting more with the larger hands. It will be interesting to see who wins.

is this a sporting event? is there a prize in addition to the money won? will the rake be withdrawn from the participants? then there is a chance that both will be at a loss.

LOL -Upstart ?? Doesn't that mean NEW to the game or something like that?? Doug Polk -you can definitely hate him but to imply he is not a long-time crusher is just wrong. He was probably the best online heads-up player during the poker "nose-bleed" stakes , He dusted off Sauce123 , (Ben Sulsky another OG crusher) for over a million dollars in an epic match. Then he used to comment on how "weak" tournament players games were, and he played some Mtts and won the 1-drop tourney , he has 2 or 3 WSOP bracelets. So hate hi all you want but "upstart" ?? Not really

upstart

/ˈʌpstɑːt/

noun
  • 1.

    DEROGATORY

    a person who has risen suddenly in rank or importance, especially one who behaves arrogantly.

"An upstart is
someone who's cocky and arrogant, and who doesn't show much respect for other people. There are many ways of starting up trouble — one is by being an upstart. Upstarts are people who are full of themselves and dismissive of others."

I think we have Phil Galfond and his challenge to thank !! It seems people are getting excited for Heads-up battles again. I know I really like the idea of 2 guys battling it out. I think many people, even many poker players do NOT realize just how different a game is when it is heads up cash. I don't know what made DNEGS accept this challenge, Of course, he has the money, and he has a ridiculous ego, I guess that is all it takes. He has never put any volume in playing heads up poker, so Doug has to have an edge, many people , Doug included, are taking BIG side bets with odds, I am not a huge risk taker so this makes me nervous, but poker pros have no problem risking alot if the chance is there for a huge pay-off. Hope to see many more of these types of matches

OK, then, I have never heard anyone use the term this way but unlike most Keyboard warriors, I can say I was wrong, about the definition, so then both Doug and Dnegs fit this definition of Upstart
