Polk Achieves 2nd Place In The WCOOP

It was a great moment for Doug Polk when he finished in 2nd place and claimed his title of Twitch.


On the 2nd day of the World Championship of Online Poker, Polk seemed like he was almost there to achieve the 1st position. However, in the end, he achieved the 2nd place and chopped the action in several ways. Grindation was the winner of High Roller and he won $584415. Doug Polk won $455000 and European won $459529. Achieving the title meant that the 2nd winner Polk also achieved the title of the highest online poker amount once again during the live stream on Twitch back. Earlier to this, Polk had achieved $700 in MTT which paid him $162000.

The American Poker player always liked games with strategies at the age of 5 when he played chess under the guidance of his father. He was an electronic sports player prior to becoming a poker champion in college. He is an excellent player and has won several poker games.

This is not the first chop that is being seen at WCOOP this year. The earlier series had Fedor Holz chop $102k High Roller and it made him win $1.06 million. It was indeed the highest buy in a league that ever took place in the online platform and also received the likes of Jason Mericer and Jason Somerville joining forces for a live stream.  Polk did not make it to the finals of the WCOOP for the first time as he also made it to final table two years back. However, he achieved the 8th position. He could not make it to first position this time, but he is quite happy with the outcome.  He received the title for achieving highest cash in the history of Poker which is no less than a victory. All his efforts were paid as he regained the title.
