Shows how little I know. I would have figured these top players were much closer in ability and thus outcomes. The odds say Iím wrong.

I think we have Poker Grinder who makes a living playing poker. Would he be 10-1 underdog? 20-1?



Heads up no limit poker is a whole different game. I think I am a competent poker player but would get crushed at no limit heads up.

Heads up is one situation where GTO matters the most. But I expect that Daniel Negreanu has also studied that extensively as prep for this match.

He has said that he has been studying it for a few weeks but realizes he will be way behind. It is very hard to call a raise with 3 9 offsuit but you should a good percentage of the time in heads up.

Currently line says otherwise

$100 will get you $400 betting on DNegs
$700 will get you $100 betting on Polk

they both put $1M in escrow.

they play till someone hits $0?
if so, what if that never happens?
ie: 4 days later, they both still have $

I think they plan on playing many more sessions than that. I wouldn't be surprised if they play 30 or more sessions

I'm guessing heads up. He normally doesn't play GTO in multi-player games. Very few, if any, can play GTO with a full table.

Who is Polk? I was very active poker player, live and tournaments when I lived back in Vegas about ten years ago but really have lost interest since moving north. I know Daniel, real nice guy. Hope he wins.

Would I be a 10-1 or 20-1 dog lol? Iíd be 1000-1 dog. Dnegs accepted a challenge to play Polk hu when Polk was at one time before retirement the best heads up player in the world. Itís not close and Polk is going to win this easily. Honestly I donít see the point of this at all for Daniel. Polk is being given free money. They are playing 25k hands over many sessions of $200/$400 no limit. The player who is down after 12.5k hands can quit. This is the equivalent of McGregor vs Mayweather except that Connor had a shot of knocking out Floyd on a fluke but thatís not possible over 25k hands. Dnegs will lose at least a million.
