Daniel vs Isildur

I have been reading up on this HU competition and I really think Negreanu has chosen a bad opponent to face. It does not surprise me that he was totally wiped out at their first meeting and only made a small profit in the final encounter. I see Daniel's style as being a small ball, post flop, type style. Isildur on the other hand is a BIG POT, gamble it up, raise and re-raise with air or the nuts kind of player. When you pair up the two I think it takes Daniel out of his comfort zone. Both being professional players they each can adapt but I think if you ran this 100 times Daniel would be the big time loser over time.

I definitely agree. Daniel's also better at live events where he can chat up and read his opponents; online he's good, but it just isn't his strong suit. Hell, he wasn't even a winning online cash gamer until this last year.
