Negreanu Polk Dispute

Is The Doug Polk And Daniel Negreanu Heads-Up Match Going To Be Delayed?

Tuesday marked a break in the Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu heads-up match but didn’t mean the day couldn’t pass without a bit of drama.

The controversy spread over a Tweet from Bill Perkins this afternoon in which he said that match had been delayed until a rule dispute is addressed. Initially, Perkins had claimed that Polk was manually entering in data for analysis, but then clarified:

Polk was not impressed with the objection to what he saw as a very minor deal:

Not a question of intregity

In the weeks and months leading up to the match, there was a lot of back and forth regarding rules and guidelines in the match, including a heated debate on the use of hand charts. They were restricted for a while, but then eventually Negreanu acquiesced.

It would be understandable if there was a bit of post-traumatic stress at play from that debate, fueling some of the initial drama on Tuesday. Cooler heads seemed to prevail with the emotions easing a bit as of early Tuesday evening with Perkins clarify by admitting there was “no malice” involved.

Mike Postle gets through into the debate!

Rules disputes go through process

In the grand scheme of the match, this appears to be a relatively minor issue. Fortunately, before the Negreanu/Polk heads-up match began, Daniel Negreanu said there is a process in place in the event this type of situation came up. Looks like the pair have chosen none other than Phil Galfond to settle disputes throughout the heads-up challenge.

Phil’s wife Farah made light of the situation in calls for Galfond to help in the case.

So rest easy, folks. You will likely be able to watch the Negreanu/Polk heads-up match when it returns to its scheduled 5:30 PM start time on Wednesday.
