Polk Shatters Twitch Cash Record, McAllister Wins WCOOP $10k
The record for biggest poker score ever streamed live on Twitch just keeps on growing - and it's mostly Doug "WCG|Rider" Polk to credit for it.
Polk did it again last night as he live streamed his deep run in the WCOOP NLHE 8-Max High Roller, finally making a deal three-handed before finishing as the runner-up for $455,000.
Polk also held the Twitch record at $162k before briefly ceding the crown to PokerStars player "SolidPenis," who won €250,000 in a €25 Spin 'N Go in July.
UK pro Phil "Grindation" McAllister continued his huge rise up the ranks this year by collecting the extra $71,200, the official WCOOP title and $584,415.23.
McAllister hit a royal flush in a huge hand and finished third in the PCA Main Event in January for $356,020.
€urop€an on a Roll
Finnish online pro €urop€an also continued his nice run of the past couple weeks with a third-place finish last night.
He made waves last week when he brokered a three-handed deal in the $1,575 Super Tuesday Special for $297,450. That deal gave him more than the original first-place money of $292,450.
Given his good fortune in that deal he was more generous in this one, conceding an extra percent to Polk to make the deal happen.
This time around he collected $459,529.71, making for a particularly impressive week. Subscribe to Polk's Twitch channel and you can watch the full replay of the final-table playdown.
