Just about even today. Caught Daniel running some bluffs in some big spots. Also caught Daniel betting some boats in some big spots. Basically this session was Daniel betting the river and me calling.

After 28 rounds, Doug leads Daniel by approximately $630,000 following roughly 16,500 hands.
Second “Live” Session Delayed Due to COVID
Although the prospect of a second High Stakes Feud “live session” has been teased periodically during commentary, Daniel informed Solve For Why viewers recently that neither contestant wants to play “live” at the PokerGO Studio for the time being.
“If it wasn’t for COVID and all that, and I could play weekly against Doug ‘live,’ I think that really benefits me significantly, right? For a lot of reasons. But because of COVID, he doesn’t want to go down there. I don’t want to go down there. The vaccine is almost here. So… who knows? Maybe after all that we might play some live…” -Daniel Negreanu: Dec 17, 2020
