Thread: Doug Polk being Doug Polk

  1. #1

    Doug Polk being Doug Polk

    Currently crushing PNiA cash game dude has more then the other 6 stacks combined only a few hrs in (over 80k) in a 25/50 blind game and Hellmuth in pity party mode as usual.. Also Olivier Busquat looks like hes channeling his inner Dan Bilzarian right now with his table look.. Very odd.

    Is he just running super-well, or both running well and outplaying everyone?

    What was his starting stack? Because winning anywhere in the high 5 figures at a live 25-50 table is pretty amazing.

    He bought in for $25k. The game is playing much bigger than usual because they're straddling a lot and everyone is deep, especially the drunk businessman.

    Watching your employer play to make sure your paycheck doesn't bounce? I think you are good for the next few months.

    I have mixed feelings about Polk, though overall more positive than negative.

    On the plus side:

    - He seems to be killing cash games, despite the "no more money, everyone's solid" narrative we keep hearing on 2p2.

    - Good reputation for honesty and integrity. Seems like the only scandals he's had were ones where he was a victim.

    - From what I hear, those who worked for/with him had good experiences.

    - Has done a great job covering the topics the poker world cares about over the past year, though I imagine we have to credit SrslySirius for a lot of that.

    - Made Limon melt down and get fired from Live at the Bike


    On the negative side:

    - Faux-hawk and YouTube-gamer-like personality come off as somewhat immature. But maybe I'm just not in the demographic he's trying to attract.

    - Feud with Ben Tollerene 6 months ago was embarrassing, and Doug went public with a lot of needless, personal details. Ben was mostly in the wrong, but Doug somehow managed to make himself look bad, too.

    But give Hellmuth credit for quickly letting it go. This is from after that game broke.

    I'll just throw this video in here because we got enough Doug Polk topics on this forum so why create another?



    Their is a weird break for about 20 seconds where I thought it was over because Polk starts talking about a hand then he gets back into it.

    Overall, I agree with Doug's points and I'm posting this because I think it's a video of a subject Druff would enjoy.

    I was watching this yesterday. Usually Doug Polk's rants are annoying and lack insight, but this was really interesting - to me at least.

    Maybe the poker world is just different, but I don't understand all of this scamming and thieving without any repercussions. It seems people are more worried about their reputation than getting their head twisted off and punted down the road.

    If someone stole 30K from me, their life would never be the same. If they stole from me and my roommates by cracking my laptop and cheating me at my profession, I would hypothetically end their life.


    How is it that all of these players steal and cheat and then report later that they see the person now and again, or that they still have mutual friends who are friends with the person...

    Are high-stakes poker players just that used to big downswings that they don't even take direct robbery personally? Or are they just pussies coming out of mostly tech backgrounds who have no recourse to collect debts?

    this is whu fat fuck polk is a douche and a cry baby

    https://www.twitch.tv/videos/129871228

    starts at 48.00 min, starts losing it with chat trolling him
    this just adds credence to ben86s claims that polk nearly started to cry when he said to doug

    "you are not the best hu player in the world, small sample size"

    to which polk lost it and was close to tears

    SrslySirius, you are invaluable to polk, you have worked wonders with the fat fuck, but seriously, cmoooon

    Holy shit! That fullflush vid just ended Hashtag King's 15 minutes of fame.

    As much as PokerNews is beaming with pride over that video, its viewership is pretty mediocre. A Polk or Neeme vid these days will do 16k in the first few hours.

    Meanwhile, I'm sad to report that Hashtag King is sorta blowing up http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/video...2l216DtZj2e0UJ

    LoL SERIOUSLY?

    i wonder how many of those 16k views are human beings and not artificial intelligence.
