HNR 3/3: Negreanu-Hansen Challenge; Revolution to Segregate Player Pools?

Dustin Gouker : March 3rd, 2013


Negreanu vs. Hansen challenge details, and the Revolution network looks to be following Party Poker’s lead in cash games. It’s all in the weekend edition of the PTP Hit and Run.

Challenge time: The challenge between Daniel Negreanu’s PokerStars team and Gus Hansen’s Full Tilt Poker team is set; get all the details here. All of the matches will take place on Full Tilt on March 10. It’ll be Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom vs. Bernard “ElkY” Grospellier, Tom “durrrr” Dwan vs. Isaac Haxton and Hansen vs. Negreanu.

Also here’s a Q & A with Blom, who talks about variance, Phil Galfond and Dwan.

Player segregation: Last week, it became apparent that Party Poker is likely separating its cash-game players by win rate. Now, the Revolution network appears to be doing the same thing. Is this a trend that is here to stay for online poker?
