Doug Polk, another online superstar, is quitting poker.

Maybe one of the best poker players today, Doug Polk, announced that he will retire from poker. After playing $300.000  Super High Roller Bowl this year he found that poker doesn’t bring him the thrill it used to do before.  WCGRider (Doug’s online screen name) wasn’t successful only in online games. He has a lot of winnings from live games, both cash, and tournaments. 

But, lately, his YouTube channel was something that was drawing the most intention. Not just we could see him playing, but he brought mainstream news and comedy channel. In one of his latest videos, in which he was talking about his $100 to $10.000 challenge, he announced that he will retire from playing poker. However, his plan is to continue working on the news and comedy channel.

Definitely one of the most talented and the most hardworking players, he brought many innovations to the modern game. His challenge against Ben Sauce Sulsky is something that will for sure be one of the most popular parts of Online Poker History. Also, Doug used to participate in side-bets against some of the most popular players, such as Daniel Negreanu.

Do you think WCGRider will really quit poker? If he does, can you blame him? Read our interview with former SuperNova Elite and see what the life of online poker pro looks like.

Lex Veldhuis breaks his Twitch viewers record while playing the WCOOP Main Event. He finished 58th out of 2.044 players and won $28.632.

Lex Veldhuis – The Twitch Star

While playing that night, Veldhuis got the message from PokerStars about his new record. At that time he had 32,839 viewers. To remind, official record in Twitch viewers still holds Jason Somerville. He is the only streamer who had more than 37000 viewers at one time.  But, it looks like that Veldhuis has a potential to break it.

This is not the only online streaming record that Veldhuis recently broke. He reached 6000 subscribers on his Twitch. To celebrate that, he decided to play 25,000 WCOOP-62-H High Roller. “The $25K is going to be a very tough tournament for me,” said Veldhuis during his stream Monday night. “I have no illusions on being profitable in that tournament. We’re doing it as a stream celebration.” 

While Doug Polk, another Twitch poker star, has announced retirement, looks like Lex Veldhuis is more motivated than ever to write history in this new poker branch.

Ali Imsirovic said:

“There are very few things that can compare to this. This win is very prestigious for me because this event series has all the top players in the world. I know the World Series of Poker main event is seen as more prestigious, but in that event, you need to get very lucky across nine days battling against a below average field. In these fields, you constantly have to play your best because otherwise, you’re just going to get destroyed.”

Here is the chart of top 10 places racing the Poker Masters Purple Jacket in 2018:

As you can see, David Peters was just 10 points behind Ali. He won kickoff $10,500 buy-in no-limit hold’em event for $193,200 and  $100,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em main event for $1.150.000.  All we can say that this is an outstanding year for him, as he won 5 live tournament titles, made 18 final tables and cashing for a total $5.659.175 in 2018.

“PokerStars invests in creating and testing products and new variants of poker to suit a variety of player tastes. While not every new development will be a home run, we will keep trialing, listening to player feedback and analyzing engagement with our goal of continuing to offer fresh promotions, formats, and updates that enhance our players’ experience and bring more people to the game,” said Severin Rasset, Director of Poker Innovation and Operations.

This was the 3rd cash game innovation that the biggest poker site released and removed this year.
