no one in their right mind would bet on him beating those games. the 25/50 regs on Stars would totally crush him.

I would imagine if this bet ever came to be that it would involve a specific number of hands. Just off the top of my head, I'll go with 50,000. Then whoever wins also gets another $1 million on top of whatever they win.

The good news is that this bet again, off the top of my head I shall call it the Negreanu Challenge will certainly go to completion and will NOT have a bunch of people wondering if it will ever resume.

xDDDD, there is no way he can beat 25/50 online, like zero chance, if i have to guess i'd say he is probably like a 5bb/100 loser in those games, i doubt he can even beat like 3/6 online on stars

Are you taking into account that he is willing to put in 4 hours a day number crunching AND 5 hours/day playing time? AND he's- 'always been a closet stats/numbers geek :-)'

He was talking about playing 100/200 in 2010 and how he doesn't play on stars now. He is stars biggest name and doesn't even play on stars?

Do you not realise he has developed a great poker mind over years of playing and now has the ability to purchase coaching from some of the best in the world to quickly move up the online ranks?

I think I'm against the grain here saying Negreanu could do this. Not easily, and yet not have great difficulty as well.

If he game selected really well and put in the work I think he could do it. His last attempt that I know of was him competing in a LHE challenge at the highest stakes where he was thoroughly destroyed vs top competition and minus any work on his part.

You jumped to conclusions in your post because I haven't said what I think would happen or which side I would bet on.

I'm just saying that this is the type of thing that I would love to watch.
I'm a fan by the way if DN views this thread
