High Stakes Feud is coming to PokerGO this Wednesday, November 4, at 8 p.m. ET, as Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk begin their heads-up match from inside the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino.
Negreanu and Polk are set to play 25,000 hands of heads-up No-Limit Hold’em playing stakes of $200/$400. The two will begin their match playing 200 hands live from the PokerGO Studio, before the action moves online to WSOP.com where the two will play two tables and multiple nights a week until the score is settled on High Stakes Feud.
“With Negreanu and Polk’s perennial rivalry and constant conflicts on social media, ‘High Stakes Feud’ will be a match fans will not want to miss,” said Mori Eskandani, Executive Producer at PokerGO.
High Stakes Feud will be available free across all PokerGO platforms – PokerGO, PokerGO’s Facebook channel, and PokerGO’s YouTube channel. Negreanu and Polk will be playing 200 hands live, and action kicks off this Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
The rivalry between Negreanu and Polk dates back several years and began with several exchanges on social media revolving around the online $25/$50 No-Limit Hold’em games, and then about the PokerStars rake increases. It heated up as Polk would wear a “More Rake is Better” t-shirt when they faced off at the same poker table. The first time being at the 2017 WSOP $111k High Roller for ONE DROP – an event that Polk won for $3.69 million – and then at the 2019 Super High Roller Bowl – an event that Negreanu finished in second-place for $3 million. It can’t be argued that both Negreanu and Polk are very successful poker players, but a closer look at the tale of the tape shows some differences between the two:
|Daniel Negreanu||Tale of the Tape||Doug Polk|
|$42 million||Winnings||$9.5 million|
|3rd||All Time Money List||101st|
Regardless of the differences in winnings or tournament victories, the only thing that matters is the impending High Stakes Feud result. Will it be Negreanu silencing the critics who have him pegged as a 4-1 underdog? Or will it be Polk fortifying his dominance as one of the best heads-up No-Limit Hold’em players in the game?
The only way to find out is to watch on PokerGO as High Stakes Feud will be available free on all of PokerGO’s platforms this Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.
