After a huge success and popularity of SuperStar Showdowns on PokerStars, the first ever PokerStars Limit Hold'em Challenge was contested on Saturday afternoon between one of the poker world's best-known players and a relative unknown. The Limit Hold’em Challenge is a new series of exclusive online matches at PokerStars, where high-stakes players compete heads-up, similar to SuperStar Showdown where Isildur1 faces different opponents, only the game is Limit Texas Hold'em.

In the first match of The Limit Hold’em Challenge Team PokerStars Pro Daniel "KidPoker" Negreanu went against player rUaBot. Among Negreanu's many accomplishments are four World Series of Poker bracelets, the last two of which were in limit hold'em events - this is simply a player that needs no introduction.
As for rUaBot, there is not much info flowing around about this player - he was referred to by Negreanu over Twitter as "a young German genius." He also commented before the challenge about what he generally thinks about Limit Hold'em: "In my opinion, fixed limit is more strategic than No-Limit. In No-Limit, you always have some guessing games like 'would he bluff here or wouldn't he?' Of course, such situations often happen in Fixed-Limit, too, but there is much more space for general strategic adaptations than in No-Limit. I think, setting up your standard game is pure math, but exploiting your opponents patterns is an art... and will always be!"

For the inaugural Limit Hold'em Challenge match, Negreanu and rUaBot were scheduled to play 1,250 hands of heads-up, fixed-limit hold'em across two tables. The stakes were $200/$400 , with each player holding $75,000 bankroll at stake. The challenge would end once one of the players went broke.

When the match started, rUaBot grabbed an early advantage over the first 50 hands, despite Negreanu claiming a $4K pot in a hand in which he rivered two pair with 8c2c. Not that long after, a disaster struck Negreanu - in just 54 hands, starting from hand 353 and ending at hand 407 rUaBot managed to increase his lead from $17,900 to $44,200, winning hand after hand. The game followed in an aggressive matter with rUaBot claiming more and more pots, and after 925 intense hands Negreanu was down to his last $5,500. Soon after rUaBot cleared Negreanu out of his last money after slow-playing top pair in a 3-bet pot.

In total it took around four hours and 937 hands for rUaBot to win all $75,000 from Negreanu.

I'm assuming its 200/400 stakes not blinds, but its still a pretty big win.

So, was DN like crushed or just somewhat worse+variance?

there is a light at the end of the tunnel... (but sometimes the tunnel is long and deep as hell)

skill differences are really noticable in FL, results wise. I would expect that his results are largely because ruabot is way better than him at FL.
