Negreanu and Polk Debate Charts and RTA for Heads-Up Match

Billy Xiong Negreanu and Polk Debate Charts and RTA for He…

The heads-up match that everyone has been waiting for is bringing the drama before even the first card is dealt! Doug Polk and Daniel Negreanu have planned to begin their heads-up match on November 1st, but the two are still ironing out the details. And one debate apparently still remains.

Pre-flop charts. Both sides seem adamant about their use – Negreanu opposed and Doug in favor of. And the two have had a heated back-and-forth on Twitter with several pros chiming in.

Part of the debate started because Doug wants to stream the entire match with hole cards visible, while Daniel prefers not to. In return Doug also wants to be able to use a pre-flop chart, while Negreanu once again would prefer not to.

Naturally, calling them “cheat sheets” is a bit of a stretch. However, Daniel’s point is valid in that he does appear to be a huge underdog in this match, and Doug likely isn’t making as many concessions as he is.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a juicy Twitter battle without many poker players choosing sides and voicing their opinions:
