Make Polker Great Again

Doug Polk Heads to Florida to Compete in SHRPO High Roller

High stakes pro announces new 2% Giveaway, shows off Make Polker Great Again tank-top.

The poker scene has been moving at breakneck speed over the last few weeks as trending news topics have dominated forums, third-party platforms and poker media sites as we head towards the final half of August.

Upswing Poker pro Doug Polk is fresh off an extremely informative King of The Hill Podcast Week and landed in Florida over the weekend to compete in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $25,000 buy-in High Roller event.

Wanted something low key to fit in here in Fort Lauderdale. Want to thank @prime_exotics305 for hooking up the rental!

Apparently, the Supreme Leader has already experienced one of the best unofficial raceways the United States has to offer on his short drive south from Fort Lauderdale to Hollywood Monday.

Doug’s schedule for the next few days will be busy, as the three-time WSOP bracelet winner catches a flight to upstate New York for Poker Night in America cash game action later this week before his heads-up encounter with Phil Hellmuth on August 22nd.

Giveaway Madness Returns

In case you missed out on July’s five-figure WSOP poker community drive, Doug has announced an all new 2% Net Profit Giveaway for the month of August, which will include his live play at the SHRPO High Roller event along with preliminary PNIA cash games and the $200,000 winner-take-all King of The Hill bracket tournament that begins next week.
