    No problem. I already have a lot wagered, so no need to hustle anyone out here.

    If anybody else wants to do a friendly bet, I will of course lay 4-1. I wouldn't recommend taking me up on it though!

    I predict Doug will win $210,000 on this challenge. Let me get five big macs! I'm actually rooting for Daniel, though.

    12.5k hands with ability for the loser to extend the match to 25k hands essentially means Daniel is fucked. Without knowing if you can reload to match I'd say Daniel is looking at something like 15%. If you can match your opponents stack for reloads that number becomes very small for Daniel.

    Negreanu gets the edge today after just 200 hands played live.

    He won $116k, mostly at the end. Doug apparently ran two bad bluffs into Daniel's strong hands.

    Just 24,800 left, guyz.

    Of course, now it moves to online, where Doug has more of an edge.

    WOW Daniel is now on pace to win $14,500,000 in this challenge!

    If anyone would like to bet on him to win, I will lay you 3-1.

    if they dragged out the live bit, I'd 100% sub to pokergo for a few months. Fast paced, talkative heads up poker? fuck yeah. Will they be live mic'ed and/or video broadcast during the rest of it? I hadn;t really payed any attention before tonight, and I only saw from hand ~130 onward, but I enjoyed the shit out of it tonite.

    There will be 360-degree cameras in the room for both players at all times, but I believe that's just for security purposes and not for the general public.

    Upswing Twitch and DougPolkPoker YouTube will be streaming the online matches, but not with player video and hole cards only at showdown.

    There will be another live session torwards the end of the challenge, and possibly another in the middle.

    bill perkins is an idiot masquerading as someone sharp

    his training system he has named 'GOD' apparently doesn't teach you to value bet with top pair heads up

    My mood right now




    At least the guy who's going to win it from me is a PFA listener.

    Well one thing we learned from twitter is that wsop.com will be returning the rake generated from this match to the players. Seems like the outside action they bring to the site will more than make up for the lost rake generated.

    As I said in my contest thread Daniel made a mistake by just agreeing to Doug's terms. This is like a very good amateur golfer agreeing to a match with a top 20 golf pro to play one match on their home course and the remaining 20 matches on professional courses that the pro golfer has played before with no handicap! Daniel should have either insisted on playing live the entire time to try and even out the edge or adding in a game that Daniel feels is his best game. I think Daniel has an outside chance to win still given the large luck factor in heads up poker between two good players (it's not like Polk is playing a pure fun player here), but it's going to be very hard for him to win now that the rest of the match is in Polk territory. I'd now guess that Polk will probably clear 500k+ from this match alone if not making more than 1 million.

    GL to all who have entered the contest thread, obviously it is now closed, and for sake of the betting in this thread let's not bump the other one until a winner has been declared.

    It's a freeroll for Daniel and whatever happens he's still getting payed.

    He gets to play the underdog and someone else foots the bill. It's was never going to be anything else.

    the last session was a beat down. dnegs would of had a better chance playing 50 dollar slots.

    i don't know if the match still being in it's infancy is a bad thing or a good thing.

    dnegs should push for more live play..not only because it strengthens his chances but it's better for us to watch

    Are there any teaser clips or highlight videos? Or should I just ignore this completely?
