Polk Opens Lead in Game One

While there’s been no major hands so far, Doug Polk has slowly and steadily pulled away from Tom Dwan in game one of their best-of-three heads up match.

Now with a 3-1 lead, Polk gets away from a hand where Dwan flops a set, Dwan getting back to 60k, Polk at 140k.

Players open with 100,000 stacks, the blinds raise every 7 hands, a best-of-three format to win and advance to Sunday.

Winner of this match plays the winner of the Patrik Antonius vs. GACKT match coming later today.
