Doug “WCG Rider” Polk will most likely get the credit for streaming the biggest poker score ever live on Twitch.
Before making a deal three-handed and ending as the runner-up for $455,000, Polk live streamed his deep run in the WCOOP NLHE 8-Max Roller.
In July, Polk won $162k after ceding “SolidPenis” (PokerStars player) to the crown live on Twitch. This was in a €25 Spin ‘N Go.
By collecting an extra $71,200 UK pro Phil “Grindation” McAllister, kept on rising up the ranks this year. He also won another WCOOP title.
In the PCA Main Event in January, McAllister finished third after hitting a royal flush in a huge hand. He won $356,020.
€urop€an on Fire
With a third-place finish last night, the Finnish online pro €urop€an is on a roll as he continues the performance of last weeks.
In the $1,575 Super Tuesday Special for $297,450, he made waves when he brokered a three-handed deal. With more than $292,450 in prize money, he received more than the originial first-place money.
This time he conceded an extra percent after making a deal with Polk. You could simply state he was more generous.
After a particularly impressive week he collected $459,529.71. For the full replay of the final-table playdown, subscribe to Polk’s Twitch channel.
