Re: Doug Polk Challenges Daniel Negreanu to Heads-Up NLHE Showdown (25k Hands)

He just got married. He is supposed to be happier than this for at least a couple more years yet.

True. He probably hates it.

I am surprised because he seems to enjoy making his WSOP vlogs. It's little bit similar.

Live streaming poker seems like the absolute nut low. Having to deal with trolls, haters, and variance at the same time takes an incredible amount of patience and confidence.

I think no matter the content of your stream you will have to deal with trolls and haters, nature of the beast

I hope he's trying to ditch that Brooklyn twang, unless he's unaware. It may even be a side effect from TRT.

1) DNegs getting wrecked for 7 figs in relatively soft televised HS games pre BF means his net worth went down, not up. just run bad though, I’m sure he crushed Ivey, Galfond, Dwan, and PA off air

2) What is your definition of enormous wealth and what proof do you have that he’s amassed it? Hendon Mob?

3) Taxes and Backers

4) 200/400 HU is definitely not “peanuts” for these guys even relatively speaking. There is a <1% chance DNegs will keep most/all his action.

I’m trying to say that just because someone (in this case negreanu) has been playing high stakes forever doesn’t mean they’re rich. This should be common sense.

Let’s not forget the +/- 8 figures people owe him (according to him)

imo

Yeah I noticed that too. Sounds like he's auditioning for a wise guy in Goodfellas or something.

I think norman Chad is spot on and he's exactly the right person to say this. Daniel should listen.
