Doug Polk, $100 to $10K in a month:- Impossibru?

Posted 3 years ago

Obviously a marketing and promotion tool but Doug Polk has been offered a challenge, getting to $10K form $100, possibly doing it over a month.
The details haven't been thrashed out yet but proper BR management seems to be part of it and likely start at HU SnGs then over to cash later and he will be taking bets on it is the assumption.

This challenge seems super tough in my weakly inexperienced opinion; not that the mighty Polk can't play well enough, I just think the rake will kill him at the bottom end.

I so think t will be fascination to follow though.

What do you think? Any experts out there with an opinion?

It's 100% possible espeically with tournaments Cheeky

I think his strategy will be to play 10nl till he had 200 then 20nl to 500, 50 to 1.5k and then at 100/200nl it is possible. If it takes him 4 days to 50nl then another 10 to 100nl/200nl he needs to make about 600/day to make it. At those stakes 6k hands/ day he could do it.

Also, if he has 5k with a few days to go he will go on some 5/10 10/20 tables and try and win a few bi, so easier than it sounds imo.

Luck is comes into it but 100% possible I'd he runs ok.

LOL a guy who plays 5kPLO and 10knl should not be doing this especially for marketing. He is literally in the games EVERYONE wants to watch but now will do what EVERYONE else is doing. #shade

Will he do it? Probs not but he might. Would say will be him YOLO'ing the full role on the tables most of the time.

If he is offered 50k by certain site to do it he might. He started his public career with a challenge just like this remember...

Well yeh if he's paid $50k......but who is gona do tht?

If stars see it as a promo then they may post him, if they sooner or and get him to update which they can then share around it will make their money back. Also he will take 10% of that at least.

Maybe $20k is more reasonable but I have no idea lol.

Yes I was watching the video when he tried to reload and had no funds! It was hilarious! I know a lot of people don't like Polk as he is quite brash but I absolutely love him! Think he is really funny and does not give a shiiiiiiit what people think of him!

I'd be very interested in seeing what kind of price he would be taking on his action if he is doing side bets on this. It seems like a possible, but very difficult goal, even for an end boss.

(H)truth. Couldn't have put it better myself, just removing his differentiating factor.

Doug is becoming a Joe Ingram or trying to and that's not why he is liked, known and popular - He is a high stakes poker pro, he beat that poker robot, seems to be top lad in the evil empire and he's at risk of distancing himself from these strengths

Nevertheless, good to have someone else creating content in poker, just wish (like Jon) it wasn't cubes, leagues for no money, dropping stakes for br challenges and things that are a move away from the essence of the game.

FYI - Asked Doug today if he's doing any side bets, he claims he isn't and that he is planning on planning around 4-6 hours a day at this.

Maybe he isn't arsed about the money and is doing this for the pride sake alone? Seems legit for some guys...

Always seemed like the type who wanted to be the best and make the most money possible. He says it himself a lot time is running out for guys like him so this just seems like he is missing out on what he is worried about missing out on??!?

Kinda like Richard Branson stopping flights to Vegas to go sell some apples in the local market to prove he is a salesmen still and can please the people.

Maybe I just can't relate I guess. Hard to miss out on all the money you already have. It's all relative I guess.
