Daniel Negreanu Bets $1,000,000 that He Ran Worse than Doug Polk in High Stakes Feud!

Daniel Negreanu Moaning About Running Bad

Daniel Negreanu has offered an outrageous $1 million bet that he ran worse than Doug Polk during the first half of their High Stakes Feud heads.up challenge. 


Daniel Negreanu claims he has been running bad during his heads-up match against Doug Polk. The Canadian high stakes star released a video grumbling about just how bad his luck is recently.

Unfortunately, unless they both release the hand histories we will never know for sure. But could Negreanu’s bet of $1 million give Polk enough motivation to publish his hand histories?

Negreanu suggests that Polk is taking it personally that his claims of being unlucky mean he thinks Polk is not a good player. This is untrue, he says.

Doug Polk Counter Claims Negreanu Is on a Top 10% Run

We all know how sensitive Doug Polk can be but listening to Negreanu moan about his luck is clearly getting to him.

He told Negreanu that his recent run of good results is a top 10% run. Clearly needling the Canadian, telling him that he’s not good enough to make a comeback.

Daniel Negreanu said: 

“He’s referencing the fact I didn’t get stacked for 2,000 hands or something like that.”


Daniel Negreanu Bets $1 Million He’s Running Worse than Polk

During his video Negreanu was clearly getting emotional over how bad he’s been running.

He lists several areas that can be checked, if Polk releases his hand histories, and he offers $1 million to anybody willing to take the bet.

“If there are any other metrics of luck that people want to add to this list to make a $1 million bet, I could use the money because I’m stuck $700K right now!”


Okay, at this point we can believe that at least Negreanu is sure of what he is saying. The question is, with him taking such a spanking right now, are his results so bad that he’s still clearly being outperformed?

We really hope that Polk takes the bait here so we can see a proper breakdown of how two world-class players battle with each other.
