Pollak burst onto the global poker scene with a third place finish at the 2017 WSOP Main Event, which landed him a $3.5 million score. Pollak began playing poker in 2006 and then confidently progressed through the stakes, stating: “I immediately felt that I was able to go far. With hindsight, it may be because I had spent 10 years in magic and I was therefore used to cards and bluffing. Poker was a revelation. I felt it was made for me.”
Pollak's Impressive Poker Resume
With almost $13m in life time earnings, Pollak sits second on the French all-time money list behind former partypoker Ambassador Betrand Grospellier. Pollak says he is keen to remind people that poker remains as fun as when he first started playing back in 2006, before swiftly progressing through the stakes.
