Doug Polk makes poker videos again, fires shots at Daniel Negreanu

Doug Polk reignites his feud with Negreanu

Doug Polk re-entered the poker community this week to fire off his most anti-Negreanu shots ever, a minute-long video compilation that sees KidPoker’s worst moments edited together – with a money shot ending…

The pair have been at loggerheads for several years, multiple public spats that we’ll get to soon enough. This weekend’s attack by Doug Polk, though, was one of the most brutal yet.

Polk stitched together clips from Negreanu’s ‘Masterclass’ series, vlogs, and recent WSOP 2020 streams – the latter featuring one of his recent meltdowns, covered here.

That loss of temper at the WSOP software was followed this week by Negreanu launching an expletive-laden rant at a troll on his WSOP stream chat.

Negreanu explained himself on Twitter…

All of this, however, was perfect ammo for Doug Polk to once again let loose at his arch-rival. ‘Golden oldies’ such as Negreanu’s embarrassing ‘Blackface’ routine…

…and the ‘More Rake is Better’ saga added to the incredible video released on Saturday.

As it went viral, huge chunks of the poker community took to commenting on it, Rob Yong and Luke ‘__fullflush1__’ Schwartz taking different views…

Even the one or two-word comments gave the game away, some of poker’s best-known names shocked at Polk’s compilation…

‘Bro’ – Joe Ingram

‘Vicious’ – Matt Glantz

‘Fkn dead’ – Ronnie Bardah

‘Omg’ – Jenny No

…with former poker pro and crypto legend Brian Micon summing it up quite nicely…

Negreanu fights back

With very little recourse bar sucking it up or biting back, Negreanu sent a Twitter message to ‘my loyal and dedicated trolls. All the usual suspects’…

The Polk – Negreanu feud goes back to 2016 when Doug Polk took issue with Negreanu’s apparent defense of his PokerStars’ paymasters and recent rake increases.

Polk latched on to the More Rake is Better meme that emerged, and soon it was being used as a stick to beat DNegs with every time he raised his head.

Polk revealed his new t-shirt when seated next to Negreanu in the SHRB that year…

…and then a few days later rented a massive billboard on the road leading to the Rio during the WSOP…

That was followed by further fights – Twitter the arena for almost all poker pro squabbles – with disputes about the Global Poker Awards and various others, as you can read here.

It’s unlikely that things will end with this week’s brutal troll video, of course.

Polk may have retired from most of his poker-related activities, but it seems that there’s always going to be one person who can bring out the best, and worst, of him – Daniel Negreanu!
