Doug ‘WCG|Rider” Polk and Philip ‘Grindation’ McAllister the two split records for the most dollars at any time gained though taking part in and streaming on Twitch after coming just one-two in the $ten,three hundred invest in-in No-Restrict Hold’em 8-Max Substantial Roller in the Globe Championships of On the net Poker.
For the second time through the 2016 Globe Championships of On the net Poker (WCOOP), the gentleman who finished putting on the bridesmaid dress finds on their own in entrance of the flickering digicam.
It occurred to Fedor “CrownUpGuy” Holz when he finished runner-up to bcnb789 in the $102,000 invest in-in Tremendous Substantial Roller, and it’s happening to Doug ‘WCG|Rider” Polk after ending runner-up to Philip ‘Grindation’ McAllister in Celebration #53: $ten,three hundred No-Restrict Hold’em 8-Max Substantial Roller.
The explanation for the switch in emphasis is Twitch. Polk has turn into just one of the most fascinating, absorbing, and controversial streamers in current instances, and the digicam was rolling when the really serious revenue was remaining doled out, developing a new history for the most revenue gained on a Twitch stream.
356 entrants (278 entrants, seventy eight re-entries) created a prize pool of $three,560,000, and McAllister, Polk, and current WCOOP winner €Urop€an stopped the action when 3-handed, to protected a deal.
It was an appealing just one with Polk telling the two McAllister and €Urop€an that he experienced ‘never finished a chop just before,’ preferred one-2% far more than icm,’ since he did not want his ‘talents to go unrewarded.’
Around translated that implies:
“I am superior than you. I will beat your asses into the floor. Be smart. Give me my revenue.”
Listed here were the ICM numbers:
McAllister – $514,400.27
€Urop€an – $460,714.seventy five
Polk – $452,629.92
Polk determined that wasn’t adequate. He preferred $455k. The other two gamers seemingly pleased with their rather large chunks of dollars agreed to split the distinction.
The split created two new records with McAllister by now successful the most revenue at any time recorded on a poker Twitch channel, and Polk successful the most at any time though hosting the action on Twitch.
After the deal, €Urop€an, who gained Celebration #35: $one,575 No-Restrict Hold’em Tremendous Tuesday Unique Version for $297,450.000 previous 7 days exited in 3rd, and McAllister beat Polk in heads-up to take the $seventy one,200 that remained up for grabs.
It was McAllister’s to start with WCOOP title and caps off an incredible 12 months. He gained his to start with Globe Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet in the summer season in a $3k Shootout event for $267,720 and took 3rd in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Principal Celebration for $356,020.
Polk gained his second WSOP bracelet in the summer season when he and his Upswing Poker company companion Ryan Charge took down the Tag Crew contest.
It is the second time that Polk has held the history for the most revenue gained when streaming on Twitch. His prior ideal was $162,000, which he gained by topping a subject in a PokerStars Mountain Series event. His most recent history, now established at $455,000, implies SolidPenis’s history $250,000 Spin & Go get appears to be rather limp in contrast.
