partypoker's POWERFEST concluded last night after 2 weeks with over 300 events and $20,000,000 in guaranteed prize pools. The final night had some big buy-in tournaments, one of which was won by American poker pro Doug "WCGRider" Polk!
The $5,200 High Roller event saw 274 entrants to boost the orginal $1 million guarantee with $424k extra! Polk streamed the action live on youtube with some short delay and around 10,000 viewers got to see him take down the tournament for $271,272!
According to High Stakes DB, this was the fourth time that Polk scored a 6-figure payday while letting people watch his game live on youtube and twitch! His biggest score while streaming came in 2016 when he chopped a WCOOP High Roller for a $455,000 payday.

| well what can i say... massive congratulation for Doug "WCGRider" Polk, an American poker pro who i have never heard before, it looks like there is a trend nowadays if you play poker and have won sth you immediately become a pro, not even taking into account how much are you losing...|

| Lucky all the ones that got to play on this one, that had qualified with satellites and won some|
money at the end.
I didnt know there was a coverage of it, on youtube.
I would have watched it at some point.

| That was pretty kind from him to let people watch his game live as mentioned in the article and what about the runner up, it seems to be a nickname for a girl so anyone have any info about???|

| Wonder if anyone so far streaming their live play has made a mistake,|
not setting a delay on it. Can be very costly mistake
Unless there is a setup with prefixed standard delay by the sites, like twitch and youtube.
