Author: Vargoso Published: 23.12.20

Early this morning, December 22nd, 2020, the 20th session of the HU battle 20th between Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk ended. Like the previous one, the Canadian won over $ 100K. Based on the results of 11,318 hands played, he loses to Doug "only" $696,328.

Negreanu's rebirth?

The last time we wrote about Negreanu vs. Polk challenge was after the 18th session. Then it seemed that nothing could prevent Doug Polk from crossing the one million dollars' border in profit. After all, he was the best for the last three playing days.

But poker wouldn't be poker if it didn't give all of us constant surprises. And one of them just happened this time.

Daniel Negreanu won $261,604 in 1,368 hands over 19 and 20 sessions and narrowed his gap to Doug Polk to $696,328 in 11,318 hands.

This is not the first time the Canadian has won two sessions in a row, but now he could make a profit of more than 100 thousand in each of them.

Doug Polk's 32nd birthday

Between the 19th and 20th sessions, the players took a long 10 days break, and the reason for this was not Negreanu's tilt but his opponent's birthday, which was on December 16th.

On this occasion, Doug shared a large number of posts with his subscribers. The poker player celebrated the holiday at home in the company of his other half. After that, Polk showed off the gifts from his girl.

Both participants of the battle have Christmas and New Year ahead, so the next sessions have not yet been announced. All spectators of the match will have to wait a bit, but there is no doubt that it will have a bright continuation.
