After Ivey eliminated Maria Ho in 3rd place, the 2 poker maestros were facing each other and the world was waiting for an epic poker battle.
“Ok, son,” said Ivey.
“Ok, boss,” replied Negreanu. “Let’s play some poker…it’s been a long time…have we played heads up before?”
“No, you always get knocked out before me.” Replies Ivey.
Negreanu started the heads-up with a 3.2m v 2.8m chip lead and went on to win the title. It was an interesting heads-up which thousands of poker fans have been waiting for. It lasted 6 televised hands and the Kidpoker clinched the trophy.
