High Stakes Duel II

After sweeping Antonio Esfandiari in High Stakes Duel back in October 2020, Phil Hellmuth turned his attention to Daniel Negreanu for High Stakes Duel II. Hellmuth claimed the victory in a marathon match that saw him sink as low as 3,000 chips from the 100,000 in play before mounting an epic comeback to win the $100,000 match.

“I would rematch Phil for eternity,” Negreanu said before a single card was dealt in High Stakes Duel II. “There is no possible way I would say no to a rematch with Phil Hellmuth.”

Following those words from Negreanu, the Round 2 match for $200,000 was set with two scheduled to face-off on Wednesday, May 5 at 8 p.m. ET. Round 2 of High Stakes Duel II will again feature three unique shows; The Hype Show on Tuesday, and The Weigh-In and Round 2 airing Wednesday from 7:30 p.m. ET.

Watch Round 2 of High Stakes Duel II on Wednesday, May 5, at 8 p.m. ET

What Did You Miss in April?

The April releases on PokerGO consisted of nearly 20 episodes of new content including the release of four episodes from the 2020 WSOP Main Event, and episodes from the 2009 and 2010 WSOP Europe Main Event.

April also saw Poker After Dark continue with the second half of Season 12 introducing new sideline reporter Veronica Brill joining the team alongside host Ali Nejad.
