- Negreanu and Polk will clash in Round 2 of High Stakes Duel 4 in August
- The upcoming bout is expected to be among the most-watched segment of the show
- Both players previously faced each other in a 2021 grudge match
After their high-profile grudge match in 2021, two of the world’s most iconic poker players, Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk, will battle it out once again at the poker table, this time as the official contenders of High Stakes Duel 4 Round 2.
The top-notch heads-up action takes place in August, with the exact date to be announced soon.
Highly-Anticipated Rematch of Top Poker Pros
In May, Negreanu won Round 1 of the current series of games against high-stakes poker player and gaming executive Eric Persson. The latter declined a rematch, but Negreanu couldn’t take his winnings just yet as per the rules of the show. Persson’s exit left the door open for a new challenger, who is no other than Polk.
Negreanu’s win against Persson marked his first victory on the show after losing three straight games to Phil Hellmuth in 2021. The GGPoker Ambassador will be looking to sustain his momentum when he faces a familiar rival to whom he lost $1.2 million three years ago in a highly-publicized heads-up clash.
The Negreanu vs. Polk match on High Stakes Duel is a must-watch battle if you’re a die-hard poker fan. They are two of the best and most accomplished poker players in the world, well-known for their exceptional skills at the table.
They have different playing styles. Negreanu is more of a tactical player who plays the game in a calculated manner, while Polk adopts an aggressive approach to beating his opponent. The poker world will once again get the chance to witness these two contrasting styles clash, as both players look to score a win in the popular heads-up show.
Battle of Brilliance
Given the caliber of these two legends, we can expect a full display of poker prowess, along with bluff exchanges and random swings which will put both players’ mental toughness and flexibility to the test.
The $100,000 Negreanu won in Round 1 will automatically go to the Round 2 pot, with Polk adding another $100,000 as his buy-in for the match, which means there’s $200,000 at stake in the upcoming battle. Whoever loses the game will have the option to go for a rematch during which the pot doubles in size.
The action takes place at the PokerGO Studio at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
