Polk shares his database stats vs Negreanu


Do you want to see how well he ran against KidPoker? Doug Polk shares all the key stats from his $1.2 million heads-up win.

Doug Polk certainly seems to enjoy talking about his challenge against Daniel Negreanu more than actually playing it, and there is a lot to talk about.

One of the biggest debates surrounding the match was whether he ran well against Negreanu? Negreanu certainly seemed to think so, whereas Polk claimed he felt it was he who ran bad, despite winning $1.2 million.

No reply from Negreanu on these stats yet, although one Twitter user did offer up what his graph might look like:

So it did look like Doug Polk beasted everything as he suggested. It still remains baffling why he has fallen out of love with the game and isn’t taking on future challenges, but to each his own.
