High Stakes Duel: Negreanu is ready for a rematch on May 5th
On May 5, the second duel between Hellmuth and Negreanu will take place as part of the High Stakes Duel show. It should be recalled that the winner of the first match was Phil Hellmuth, who once again showed his white magic". At one point, Negreanu had a 33 to 1 chip advantage, but Phil later managed to win his chips back.
In the decisive hand, Hellmuth decided to bluff with A-8 on a K-6-5 flop. The turn brought 9, and Phil continued to play in the hope to hit a straight on the river. It seems that Hellmuth had luck on his side as 7 appeared on the board, giving him a straight, while Negreanu hit two pair. After that, Negreanu could no longer regain the advantage.
It is clear that Negreanu won’t stop at one match: he’s dying for a rematch. It's good that this is foreseen in the rules of the show, so we are all waiting for the second round of an exciting duel taking place at 10:00 UTC on May 5th. This time, the buy-in will be twice as expensive, that is, $100 000.
