WATCH: Doug Polk To Attempt a $100 to $10,000 Bankroll Challenge


  • Watch @DougPolkPoker explain his plan to turn $100 into $10,000 playing online poker.

Poker pro, Doug Polk takes to Youtube to announce he'll be streaming his attempt at running his bankroll from $100 to $10,000 on Twitch. This certainly isn't the first time we've seen this sort of challenge, but Polk mentioned his fans voted for this challenge specifically against three other ideas via a poll on his Twitter.

Polk dives into his strategy by saying he'll be taking this very seriously and playing freerolls, $1 buy-in heads-up sit-n-go's, and $1 buy-in tournaments. He'll maintain his bankroll management by ensuring he has 50 to 100 times his buy-in on tournaments, and 30 to 40 buy-ins for cash games depending on the situation.

Polk will be playing mainly on and his goal is to complete the challenge in six to seven weeks. To watch Polk stream, you can check him out at
