Three stacks of High Society up for grabs as Fees pledges Main Event stake.
The 2017 World Series of Poker has been full of excitement, whimsy and fantasy for reigning DPYourCommunity.org Founder of The Month Doug Polk, who took home $1.5 million in net profit this June thanks to his High Roller for One Drop victory.
Fresh off a ceremonious pool party extravaganza inside the Surrender Las Vegas nightclub, Doug — alongside Empire commanders Ryan Fee and Matt Colletta — settled the 2-drink-per-guest tab Friday night while preparing for ANOTHER WSOP CASH GIVEAWAY!
Team Upswing Fam members around the world are anxiously awaiting the three-time WSOP bracelet winner’s $30,000 Cashback Rewards Cast (Enter Here), and we have confirmed via #PokerTwitter that our very own Ryan Fee has officially caught the WSOP Giveaway Bug.

Doug encountered some resistance during “Day 1B” action, but still has an opportunity to chip-up and make a run ahead of his Facebook Live show coming soon. You can check out Doug’s latest YouTube Poker vlog in the meantime — which features insight from Antonio “SoFlo” Lievano and WSOP mainstay Mike “The Mouth” Matusow.
Over 7,200 card players took to the Las Vegas felts this weekend in hopes of winning the world’s most famous poker tournament along with the coveted world championship bracelet and $8,150,000 USD in first place prize money. “They all need to bust so Fees & Dan can send me more money,” noted one anonymous Giveaway hopeful.
Worry not, Parker “tonkaaaaP” Talbot has a WSOP 2% Net Profit Giveaway of his own and there are a number of other personalities extending their outreach and engaging on-site as well as virtual onlookers at the 2017 World Series of Poker.
