Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu have agreed to play their much-anticipated high stakes heads-up match on WSOP.com.
High stakes poker players Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu have communicated on Twitter that they will compete heads-up on WSOP.com — one of the few legal online poker sites currently available within the United States.

The tentative social media agreement comes after months of speculation that the match, which could last for 12,500 or 25,000 hands of $200/$400 No Limit Hold’em, might be played on collaborating site GG Poker due to Negreanu’s involvement as an ambassador for that brand.

He said it from the beginning that he was an underdog and anyone who has any poker knowledge knows this. I’m sure he’s bummed that Will from FB isn’t a fan. Probably can barely sleep at night.

No Land-Based WSOP This Year, But Plenty of Online Action
Unfortunately, the 2020 World Series of Poker was not played this year due to land-based travel and gathering restrictions that have been in place throughout the world since March.
However, if all goes according to the most recent Twitter communication, WSOP.com will be hosting the Polk vs. Negreanu match… and is also the site for the ongoing Chance Kornuth vs. Phil Galfond heads-up Pot Limit Omaha challenge match.
With Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu firing up “practice” matches against virtual sparring partners, could the two meet-up on the WSOP.com felts as soon as November 1st? We could be only a few short weeks away from watching the two poker veterans compete heads-up for up to several million dollars.
