NEW PLO Launchpad training course: http://bit.ly/PLOLaunchpad​ (Dylan on the show Weds to discuss)   DOUG POLK AKA THE SUPREME LEADER AKA DOUGLAS K POLK AKA DEBATABLY THE BEST HUNL PLAYER IN THE WORLD AKA THE MAN THE MYTH THE LEGEND is BACK on the Poker Life podcast today. We are talking all about the epic HU challenge vs Daniel Negreanu and how Doug came out victorious for $1,200,000. Doug has spent the last 3 months battling Daniel at a $200/$400 high stakes HU battle. Doug was the big favorite coming into the match and the pressure was on him to deliver a victory vs Daniel. The match was pretty anti-climactic in terms of who would win as Doug was the odds on favorite to win and wasn't in much danger of losing. At one point later in the match, Daniel had a massive near $400,000 victory over the course of a few hours that forced Doug to rethink his strategy. Doug came out using a limping strategy which caused Daniel to start tanking which caused a major controversy as Phil Galfond needed to step in to mediate the dispute. In the end, Doug came out with the victory in the match and in the side bets worth millions of dollars. Today we discuss more on it!
