His game does have some issues: Doug Polk
After the session, each player shared his view on social networks. Doug Polk said that the current results are completely normal in heads-up high stakes games, and he will only refer to Negreanu's game after the match, although he pointed out that he spotted some issues.
On the other hand, Daniel Negreanu barely refers to the challenge on his social networks; he only said that they have only played 4% of the entire match.
After the last session, the High Stakes Feud team interviewed Negreanu, and he only appointed that he felt good with his game and that he had some unfortunate sports.
- In a 4-bet pot, both players went all-in in the river for 90k showing Q9 (Negreanu, two pairs) vs. 9T (Polk, one pair) in a board 7J9Q4.
- With 20k in the pot from the flop, Doug check-raised in the turn and won 34k after Negreanu folded.
- In a board 432K, Daniel overbets twice the pot, and both pros checked on the river (another 4). Doug was trying to trap Negreanu with a four, and he confessed he had a top pair from the flop.
- $135k were at the center of the table after both players went all-in in the river in a board K7385. Doug beat Negreanu with K7 against K5 (two pairs each).
- Polk won over 30k in a board 59A2T with KJ high against a K4 from Negreanu, who failed a flush draw.
