Doug Polk and Jungleman to Battle $200/$400 Heads-Up NLHE at the Lodge Poker Club

Doug Polk looked for opponents for a new monthly live streaming high-stakes showdown at The Lodge Poker Club. Several names were offered, including Bryn Kenney and Charlie Carrel, but they were superfluous.

Instantaneously, Daniel 'Jungleman' Cates rose to the occasion and announced that he was ready for the challenge and would play, even going as far as to tag Bryn Kenney and Phil Hellmuth in his tweet.

Recently, controversies have swamped the poker industry. Angling conflicts, allegations of ghosting, and the list is endless. A wild, old-fashioned high-stakes heads-up battle is essential in the poker world to divert attention away from the current turmoil.

Poker fans will witness what promises to be a spectacular duel. Tom Dwan was widely regarded as the world's finest heads-up cash player back in the day, but Jungleman put him to school before the players called off the match.

Who is the best among these players currently? Hopefully, we will find out in a few days.

In their interview on the Doug Polk Podcast, Polk and Jungleman were ready to engage in a squabble. Polk reacted to Jungleman's remark that he "has to be put in place since he speaks a lot of bullsh*t".

"Yeah, I'm going to f**k you up; that's what's going to happen. I will beat your a** at some $200/$400; heads-up NL Hold 'em, $50,000 buy-in. Definitely gonna have some reloads on deck."

Doug Polk then admitted that Jungleman had previously defeated him in this format but accused him of hitting and running. It is a severe etiquette violation in the high-stakes heads-up arena.

He stated that he'd been hoping for Polk to relocate to Texas so they could duel where the game started. But now it's time to take a stand against Polk about all of the nonsense he said.

It will be his most prominent outing at the club, as he and Cates will compete in a $200/$400 No-Limit Hold'em poker event with $50,000 buy-ins.

Last year, Polk and Daniel Negreanu clashed in a lengthy online heads-up contest, which Polk finally won.

We can't wait to witness this clash. Two elite players are squaring off in what Polk claims is currently the world's fifth or sixth biggest poker room. Following complaints about waiting lines, the lodge has increased its table count from 60 to 80.
