Bill Perkins is betting on Doug Polk and giving 10-1 odds to Negreanu.

For those that don't know he is a large hedge fund manager and high stakes poker player. I just ordered his book.

Then I would like to play with him but I have never seen him in the $25-$50 games.

More like Polk was jabbing at Negreanu constantly to attract views to his videos.

Perkins has put 1mm on DNegs at 4 to 1. He thinks Daniel has some aces up his sleeves, I tend to agree.

not sure all 1M was at 4:1 odds. only $500k confirmed at 4:1.
https://en.cardmates.net/negreanu_vs_polk_heads_up_was_rescheduled

"Douglas Polk is so confident of winning the heads up that he even made a prop bet with Bill Perkins.
The poker player bet $2 000 000 at 4:1 odds, meaning if he wins, Perkins will pay him $500 000; if Negreanu wins, then Polk will become $2 000 000 poorer.

Even though the stakes are very high, Doug Polk tweeted that Perkins was offering to bet even more money.
Perkins himself bet a total of $1 000 000 on this match, but the millionaire did not specify who he had made deals with."


also, why isnt Perkins using the 7:1 Vegas odds betting line? (or has that line come down to 4:1 now?)

I've watched a lot of Polk playing online I think he has some significant timing tells, if anyone is able to spot and exploit any of that it's Negreanu.
