Upswing Poker featured pro Doug Polk has announced via YouTube that he will begin live streaming the 2016 PokerStars WCOOP this Sunday, September 4th.
With the $100 to $10,000 Bankroll Challenge on pause (current roll $137), the action moves north to Vancouver, Canada as thePolkernews host looks to make his mark on the marquee online tournament series.
Doug’s live stream will be headlined by the $102,000 buy-in WCOOP Event #28 (begins Sunday, September 11th), which has a guaranteed prize pool of $2 million.
What Can Viewers Expect from WCOOP Live Stream?
The two-time WSOP bracelet winner answered a multitude of fan questions in his official WCOOP announcement video over the weekend., including letting loyal Subscribers and Lab members know that there will be four days of streaming coming up this week.
Although Doug’s hole cards may be displayed at various times throughout the program, the world’s premier heads-up NLHE player has made it clear to fans that they will not be shown in the higher buy-in tournaments.– including the $102,000 WCOOP-28.
Doug acknowledged that some fans will be disappointed by this fact — countering that he wishes to maximize expectation during this year’s World Championship of Online Poker series — something that cannot be reasonably achieved by giving away hole card information on-stream.
Those who have followed along with Doug’s career as well as recreational players have plenty of reasons to tune-in and follow along this week. If you’ve been anxious to see your favorite poker personality compete in higher stakes games with six-figure scores in the balance, you’re about to be in for a treat!
Big money is up for grabs, which means the Las Vegas resident could potentially break his own record for largest MTT victory in the history of Twitch Poker, which was set earlier this year at $162,952 in the $700 buy-in PokerStars Kilimanjaro event.
The DougPolkPoker YouTube channel will be active over the next two weeks as well, with daily clips uploaded directly from the Twitch stream that will highlight key moments in the cash game specialist’s WCOOP run.
