Doug Polk To No Longer Post YouTube Poker Videos
When you find success at something you love, you tend to stick with it for a long time.
Doug Polk found financial success playing poker and the game brought him not just money but also fame.
Polk has over $9.4 million in career prize money based on the Hendon Mob with his best live cashout being over $3.6 million when he won the 2017 WSOP One Drop High Roller.
Doug Polk decided to walk away from playing poker in 2018 and shocked the poker world because he was having a good run. It appeared that Polk had lost his passion for playing poker and wanted to move on and do other things. Polk stated at that time that he would no longer play competitive poker but might have a game for fun.
Polk stayed true to his word and did not return to the competitive US poker scene but instead went on to build a successful YouTube poker channel called ‘Doug Polk Poker’. He built this channel from the ground up by posting poker related content on a regular basis, addressing controversial topics, calling players out by name and getting into feuds with a number of players.
Polk grew his YouTube subscription to over 287,000 subscribers who were located in different parts of the world. Poker fans and enthusiasts loved to tune into his poker channel to get his views and opinions on a variety of different topics. They will not be able to do this anymore as Doug Polk has announced that he will not be posting anymore poker related content.
Polk uploaded his final poker video (shown above) where he gives his subscribers an explanation as to why he will not be posting more poker content.
Poker Burnout For Polk
Polk admits candidly that he no longer enjoys playing poker or talking about poker. He made the decision to walk away from playing poker because he no longer loved the game and now he the passion to make poker videos has also gone cold.
Doug Polk said that he initially wanted to post 80 videos to win his bet with Joey Ingram and once that was done, he kept going as his subscriber base was growing. However, he made the decision that it is time for him to pursue new ventures and poker is not part of those plans anymore!
