Today, PokerGO®, Poker Central’s direct-to-consumer OTT subscription video service, announced their collaboration with GGPoker on “High Stakes Feud”, a new cash game featuring a head-to-head battle between notable poker professionals and long-standing rivals, Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk. Top poker hands from High Stakes Poker Season 2 featuring Gus Hansen, Daniel Negreanu, Mike Matusow, Eli Elezra, Erick Lindgren, Todd Brunson, and many.

The post-Thanksgiving sessions of High Stakes Feud continued last week with Daniel Negreanu and Doug Polk playing three sessions. Following an estimated 7,467 hands in total, Polk still holds a lead of $518,409.44 following Negreanu booking three small wins.

After beginning High Stakes Feud from inside the PokerGO Studio, the match migrated to WSOP.com where Polk immediately eroded his deficit and surged into the lead. Negreanu managed to stage a fightback, but over five sessions during Thanksgiving, Polk went on an upswing of nearly $800k to reach the highest point in High Stakes Feud as he held a lead of $595,771.64.

The 13th session of High Stakes Feud was a very timid session between Polk and Negreanu in comparison to the previous week of action on WSOP.com. Polk took the early small lead before Negreanu wrestled back the advantage with a string of pots. Negreanu surged ahead going uncalled in some river spots as his advantage moved to roughly a full buy-in. In the biggest pot of the session that was three-bet preflop, Negreanu check-called the flop and turn before both players checked the river as Negreanu’s pocket tens collected the pot.

Following a short break, the second part of the session began with Negreanu getting full value with top pair against Polk’s second pair as he was forced to rebuy. Polk would now be down roughly $120,000 but eventually, it would turn as Polk ended the session down only 17,780.32 after 476 hands while it would appear that Negreanu would be most upset after losing out on a big win with Polk also dodging aces multiple times.

A win is a win but this freaking guy is WORLD CLASS at folding preflop when I have Aces! I have video evidence we are now at exactly 10 straight times where he has either open folded, folded bb, or folded t a 3 bet. Casino 1995 watch online.

4 times in today’s session. 😂

Wednesday saw Polk and Negreanu play their 14th session and it began with Polk edging out into the early lead. In a four-bet pot, Negreanu found himself all-in on the turn with aces-up but it would be Polk having turned trips to prompt Negreanu to rebuy and be holding a deficit of roughly three buy-ins. Shortly after, Negreanu doubled on that same table when he flopped the nut straight, while on the second table in a four-bet pot he flopped top pair and a flush draw and was all-in on the turn against Polk’s second pair and improved to a flush on the river.

That quick swing saw Polk hold a lead of just under a buy-in before that eventually dropped to even. As quickly as Polk hit the red, he soon rebounded into the black following a string of pots including one where his pocket nines struck gold on the river after Negreanu had turned trip kings. With Polk now back to roughly a three buy-in advantage, it was slowly reduced by Negreanu before he won a monstrous $185,057.06 pot with flush-over-flush to be down less than a buy-in. The session continued for a little longer before it concluded at an estimated 788 hands which saw Negreanu win approximately $13,000 over Polk.

The final session of the week occurred on Friday with Polk streaming his session on a delay and with mostly covered hole cards. Polk immediately forced Negreanu to rebuy when both players flopped top pair as the money went in on the flop with Polk’s kicker playing by the river. Negreanu clawed his way back when he made a river shove that prompted Polk to fold two pair, before Polk bricked a pair and a flush draw and folded to a Negreanu river-shove.

Polk however would surge back into the lead when he scooped a pot worth over $150,000. Negreanu check-shoved the turn with an overpair and Polk snap-called holding the nut straight. It would then be Negreanu making a straight when he flopped a wheel against Polk’s two pair and found a full double on the river. Negreanu then flopped a full house as Polk barrelled into him with queen-high before rivering some showdown with a pair. Soon after, Polk ran kings into Negreanu’s aces in a pot totaling just over $92,000 as the session wrapped up after 452 hands with Negreanu profiting $46,581.88.

With 15 sessions now complete, 7,467 hands have been dealt of the 25,000-hand quota in High Stakes Feud. Polk holds a lead of $518,409.44 over Negreanu as Poker Central will continue to provide weekly updates of all the High Stakes Feud action until a winner is crowned.

The most iconic poker TV show of all time is returning with a new season of High Stakes Poker debuting on Wednesday, December 16. After more than nine years of the show being off the air, one of the players making his return to High Stakes Poker is Phil Ivey.

Ivey is often grouped among the likes of Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth as the most popular players in the game. When it comes to accomplishments, Ivey has nearly done it all having amassed over $30.3 million in lifetime tournament winnings – which include 10 WSOP bracelets and a WPT title – but the majority of his highlights have come from the televised cash games he has played around the world.

Having appeared on 13 episodes of High Stakes Poker during Season 3 (2007) and Season 6 (2010), he was involved in one of the most famous High Stakes Poker hands when Brad Booth bluffed with four-high for a gutshot straight draw as Ivey folded pocket kings on a seven-high flop. That famous hand also led to one of the most famous High Stakes Poker quotes. Following a continuation-bet from Ivey, Booth put $300,000 in cash bricks into the pot to put Ivey all-in. Ivey’s response? “I wish you had put the chips in. That cash just looks so sweet.”

Having won his 10th WSOP bracelet in 2014 to be tied with Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan, everyone assumed he would now look to chase down Hellmuth who had won 13. Since that last WSOP bracelet win, Ivey hasn’t been a regular at the WSOP and consequently only added 12 WSOP cashes, while Hellmuth on the other hand has added 56 WSOP cashes and two WSOP bracelets to now sit with 15. Over the last few years, Ivey has increased his poker playing and was regularly seen playing the Triton Series tournaments and cash games around the world.

“Poker is poker man, and it’s just a different group of players,” Ivey said about the difference between High Stakes Poker and Triton Series. “You just approach the players differently, but poker is poker, and no matter whether it’s Triton or here, or wherever you’re playing. It’s just a poker game with six or seven other guys at the table.”

Although not registering as many appearances on High Stakes Poker as the likes of Negreanu, Brunson, or Antonio Esfandiari, Ivey will see his number increase once Season 8 of High Stakes Poker begins airing in December.

“I don’t feel like I have anything to prove,” Ivey said on his return to High Stakes Poker. “Excited? Nervous? Neither. I enjoy playing with these guys – some of them more than others – you know it’s nice to be back on High Stakes Poker, it’s been a long time. And I’m looking forward to the next season.”

And when prompted about that famous, “That cash just looks so sweet,” quote from Season 3 and whether or not cash motivates him to keep playing, Ivey responded, “No. I play because I enjoy playing now. I’m not motivated by money.”
