  • .@DougPolkPoker grew his YouTube channel really quickly in a short amount of time. YouTube noticed.

Doug Polk is by far one of the most well-known figures in the poker world. Sure, we’ve seen him many times on the felt, but over the last year, he’s become more recognizable by the general audience for hig vlogs and social presence.

Polk is really active across social media platforms, as you can follow him on Instagram, Twitch, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter and since last year, Youtube.

His channel started in June 2016 and was the first poker YouTuber to hit 100,000 subscribers. As of Monday, he had more than 147,000. That’s some serious growth in a very short amount of time. At this same time last year, his channel only had 23K followers. That's a 547% growth rate from year-to-date. Impressive.

Another achievement: Polk passed Daniel Negreanu in subscribers last December and still holds a slight lead over 'Kid Poker.'

This is a big milestone to achieve, and of course Doug couldn’t have been more excited. He took to Instagram to share a photo of his newly-received prize and posted, “I couldn't be happier with the over 350 videos produced in the last 17 months, and am looking forward to the the future.”

Now, in case you were curious, let’s take a look at some of his best videos:
