“The Truth About Dan Bilzerian’s Poker Ability” achieves important benchmark.
YouTube Poker vlogging expands with Primed by Fedor Holz channel.
The most popular YouTube video ever uploaded by Upswing Poker pro Doug Polk surpassed 1 million views recently. “The Truth About Dan Bilzerian’s Poker Ability” was published earlier this year by three-time WSOP bracelet winner Polk, who relayed his thoughts on whether the King of Instagram has accumulated his entire fortune from high stakes live poker games.
The 15-minute clip made mainstream headlines when it was originally released and was covered by popular United Kingdom websites Ask Men, The Sun and TheLADbible.
The video also sparked one of the most enduring inside poker jokes of the year when Sarah Barns of The Sun accidentally referred to the popular YouTuber as “Dan Polk” before making the appropriate correction a short while later (see Comments section here).
Doug — whose YouTube videos have propelled him to owning the top player-based channel in the poker space — has continued to have fun with the misnomer and even uploaded a satire work video during the 2017 Brains vs. AI Heads-Up Poker Challenge.
Young Prince Fedor Holz Joins YouTube Poker
Primed Mind CEO and German high roller superstar Fedor Holz began vlogging last week during his trip to Las Vegas for the 2017 Poker Masters.
The 24-year old, who has cashed for over $23 million USD in live poker tournaments, remains in contention to claim the first-ever Purple Jacket this week at the ARIA Las Vegas Poker Room.
However, he still faces tough competition from some of the biggest names in the game who are seeking high roller glory of their own — as the $100,000 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Poker Masters Main Event approaches its September 20th final table.
Viewers can check out the Poker Masters Main Event via the premium live streaming service at PokerGO.com ($10/month, $99/year). Day 2 will be telecast starting Tuesday at 2:00pm local Las Vegas time, with real time hand history reports and updates provided separately by PokerNews.

The four-figure payday could assist at least one aspiring for-profit player in achieving his or her Poker Dream, boost traditional retail sales through a 30-minute Sunglass Hut shopping spree, or attempt to make a Purple Heidi appear on one of the ARIA Bier Haus slot machines.
Congratulations to Doug and Dan on reaching 1 million views for a single YouTube Poker video!
Team Upswing wishes the remaining high rollers in the 2017 Poker Masters Main Event the best of luck in their quest for the prized Purple Jacket!
