The bet looks like an extension of a recently ignited feud involving the two poker legends. After Negreanu’s loss that is seven-figure Doug Polk in their high-stakes heads-up grudge match, Hellmuth publicly criticized the six-time bracelet winner’s play in the challenge.
Hellmuth’s words sparked a response that is fiery Negreanu, whom wanted to play heads-up at any stakes in almost any place for almost any extent. The task did actually indicate a cash game challenge, which Negreanu had simply invested months learning, nevertheless the two consented to play in a heads-up sit-n-go format on PokerGO’s “High Stakes Duel.”It are going to be Hellmuth’s battle that is second the show after beating Antonio Esfandiari three straight matches for $400,000 in his first go-around.Not only is Negreanu calling his heads-up game into question but is now openly doubting how good Hellmuth is at multi-table tournaments, a format that has netted him the career
bracelet record, as well as more than $22 million in earnings.
Other high roller regulars are agreeing with Negreanu. Ali Imsirovic, a 24-year-old pro who made a rise that is meteoric the ranks while netting significantly more than $9 million in job competition profits, wanted to wager a lot more if Hellmuth ended up being prepared to simply take more action.

Aria’s Director of Poker Operations Sean McCormack said in the thread that Aria has “a few a on average,” when someone asked how many $25,000 buy-ins run regularly month. It’ll probably simply take Hellmuth a lot of the 12 months to perform the process at that rate, nevertheless the regularity that the home operates those tournaments increase when there is a significant tournament that is live this summer or fall.
When it comes to high-stakes tournaments, Hellmuth has always been somewhat of a polarizing figure.
During his heads-up match with Esfandiari, high-stakes legend Phil Galfond gave Hellmuth props, saying him a long time to realize “just how talented he is. that it took” The tweet ended up being met with backlash from numerous high-stakes professionals claiming that Hellmuth ended up being overrated.(*)
