Doug Polk bet $2 million on himself
Douglas Polk is so confident of winning the heads up that he even made a prop bet with Bill Perkins. The poker player bet $2 000 000 at 4:1 odds, meaning if he wins, Perkins will pay him $500 000; if Negreanu wins, then Polk will become $2 000 000 poorer.
Even though the stakes are very high, Doug Polk tweeted that Perkins was offering to bet even more money. Perkins himself bet a total of $1 000 000 on this match, but the millionaire did not specify who he had made deals with.
