Online vs. Live – the Hatfield and McCoy style feud that rears its head in the world of poker from time to time has bubbled to the surface once again.
Last week, “Live Pro” Daniel Negreanu essentially said that, with two weeks of intense study, he could re-learn to beat the 25/50 online cash game on PokerStars.
Online wizard Doug Polk on the other hand, respectfully disagrees and, in an interview from EPT Barcelona with PokerNews, essentially calls out Daniel for not understanding the current landscape of the state of online cash games, that he does not “have the skillset” to win right now and, generally coming across like he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
Polk does believe that the online community was slighted and, when cornered, issued an official challenge to Daniel to see if he can beat the high stakes online game here in 2014 like he did in 2010…provided they can hammer out the details of the prop bet.
Question is: will Daniel accept?
