Negreanu in new big heads-up-duel on PokerStars
This weekend PokerStars will introduce Limit Hold'Em Challenge where Daniel Negreanu will play "rUaBOT" for $150,000.
This Saturday, May 5th 2012 at 15:00 GMT / 10:00 EDT, you can log on to your PokerStars account and follow Daniel Negreanu and "uRaBOT" as they meet heads-up in the "Limit Hold'Em Challenge" for $150,000.
The players will play best of 1,250 hands on $200/$400 Limit Hold'Em heads-up-tables - or until one of them has lost $75,000.
Even though Negreanu is considered one of the biggest poker players in the world and even though he has just returned from EPT Grand Final with winnings of +$1,000,000, he still has a lot of respect for his opponent.
He just posted the following on Twitter:
Negreanu has twice before taken part in PokerStars duels - both times against Viktor "Isildur1" Blom from Sweden. The first time the Canadian got fleeced as he lost his $150,000 in little more than 1,400 hands. He quickly got a re-match where he was able to take "Isildur1" for $26,000 after being waaay behind.
With that in mind it's going to be interesting to follow "Kid Poker" against "rUaBOT" this weekend.
