A six-figure rating for ChildPoker however how a lot will it matter when the problem strikes to the net felt?
If you have been hoping for fireworks within the eagerly awaited feud between Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu you’d have been left wanting, because it was a very civil affair. Polk and Negreanu have been very pleasant in the direction of one another all through, even making jokes and discussing technique.
Last evening the 2 performed the primary 200 fingers of their 25,000 hand match stay within the PokerGO studios. After 4 hours of play Negreanu walked away with a $116,500 lead heading into their on-line match.
Of course these 200 fingers are comparatively inconsequential on condition that a additional 24,800 are set to be performed on-line at WSOP.com over the subsequent few months, throughout two tables of $200/$400. All this match did was set a tone and provides the remainder of the feud a little bit of publicity.
Ultimately the tone it set was cordial and it may very well be the case that by the point that is all mentioned and performed, win or lose, the 2 males may bury the hachet.
I used to be comfortable that regardless of our historical past, and with all of the divisiveness within the nation proper now, that @DougPolkVids and I may very well be civil and placed on a present that the poker group may each be happy with and benefit from the fireworks.

Or, as Negreanu inferred in the promo video for this stream, it may very well be that after Polk will get again on-line he’ll get again to trolling and this match simply confirmed the distinction between how most of us act in actual life vs on-line.
No phrase but on when these first on-line matches will happen however they may all be streamed on-line, in all probability by a number of shops however Upswing Poker have confirmed they will stream each match.
