    Actually session 18, but whatever.

    Doug acknowledges that he got lucky yesterday, as he has in most big spots thus far.

    Some people are saying that Daniel will quit at the 12,500 hand mark, as is allowed by the challenge rules. However, I don't think he will. I feel that he truly believes he's losing mostly because of the big hand runbad (which, to be fair, is a real thing so far), so he will keep on truckin'.

    Also, if he's getting backed, I'm guessing the well-heeled sources behind him will buy his explanation and let him keep going.

    Agreed. I tried to bet on this yesterday, but got no takers.

    seems like the only way he's gonna win back 1 milly is to up the stakes. maybe sit down with $125k instead of $40k

    if we go by online only and exclude the live session at the beginning of this whole deal, he's down over a mil already. his only remedy would be extended live play and a hurricane of variance in his favor, and doug ain't gonna allow them to play thousands of live hands, because why would he?

    I'm enjoying the shit out of this whole thing, myself. I watch a portion of almost every broadcast, and I've passively watched more than a few all the way thru late nite.

    Daniel gets a little back, but he's got a long way to go.

    Doug Polk is just a better player than Daniel Negreanu.

    Daniel is on major tilt.

    He is also suffering from "roid rage" and has mental problems.

    It's admit defeat and retire from poker.

    GG

    eh, not exactly...


    I wouldn't think thats exactly what is going to happen here. Variance happens and nobody just runs directly straight uphill, Dnegs will get his too imo, but the stakes they are playing its getting sizable now for sure. Either way and factor in two actual world class players, and variance built into a deck of cards and I think it will even out more so then it is now. Could be wrong but lots of hands left still..

    12500 hands done....Daniel lost an average of just over $61 per hand.

    Iím sure heís learned enough to make $ off the endeavor which is probably his reason for doing itin the first place

    dnegs has outplayed him pretty thoroughly the last few sessions, but all the previous bad showdown variance and him being down quite a bit, makes it harder to comeback. it's hard to walk away from a session +200k

    I canít think of any rational reason for him to play Polk at Polks best game...

    Halfway there, 12.5k hands, 770k up for Polk.

    This low-budget but funny video hasn't gotten much love... yet. Not sure who made it.

    Negreanu chipping away at the lead.

    https://twitter.com/#!/x/status/1348827442887028737

    Negreanu has been on an upswing (no pun intended) for the past 3500 hands or so.


    Might Negreanu have also bought himself out of the endless Polk trolling, by agreeing to this match? Look how sweet this is:

    Is SteveDaPimp back? His M/O back in the day was to impersonate well known pros and scam people:

    Also, while I don't mind Doug, I have kinda come around to sonatine's thinking that he's a burger:

    dnegs has outplayed polk more than the other way around. sadly, he's on the short end of things. whittling away at -800k is hard work

    lol @ the wrap up interviews after the match today.

    dnegs complained some more about running like shit.

    polk rips him a new one saying he's destroying him and denegs is running like a god not running like shit. complete with fish voice and theatrics


    hilarious stuff as he likened dnegs to a 1/2 fish running bad and complaining that he wasn't running bad at all (in polks mind)
