As noted previously on this site, in an effort to maximize his new role as a poker host as the new Wynn Casino, Daniel Negreanu has issued an open challenge. He will play anyone at the Wynn, in any of nine different games for anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000.

Though he managed to play two matches in the first week of the open challenge, Daniel's schedule has limited him to only playing one match since. This past week, Daniel took on poker whiz kid Joe Cassidy in a $200,000 limit hold em match.

The match was actually broken into two sessions. On the first session, Daniel was actually down 370,000 to 30,000, but battled all the way back to almost even. Daniel and Joe played for about four hours that night, and at the end of play Joe lead 225k to Daniel's 175k.
