Doug Polk starting to stream

Heyo,

Figured this would be something people would be excited about. Doug has finally decided to start streaming. He will be streaming on twitch.tv/upswingpoker

He is going live for the first time tomorrow (3/25) at 4 pm pst. Here is a poll he started on Twitter for people to vote on what he's going to play: https://twitter.com/DougPolkPoker/st...64227800748034

Enjoy! I'm super excited to see players like this streaming.

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

I watched for hours (that says a lot for me since I can't watch most poker streams for long periods of time since Adrian Fenix stopped streaming) and found it incredibly entertaining. He seems like a natural at Twitch, which is crazy, seeing as it was his first stream.

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

Hey guys, I wanted to say thanks to everyone that tuned in yesterday! It was ridiculous how many people showed up for the stream, the chat got pretty hectic. It was a great experience and im looking forward to doing it again.

I am going to be streaming tomorrow @ 2 PM PST, so drop on by if you want to check it out! www.twitch.tv/upswingpoker .

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

Not biggest fan of his personality (actually, the problem is most likely that I am old and grumpy, and he is young and cocky, lol).

But definitively the best streamer I have yet to see, answers to most questions, dynamic and, well, the quality of his game is not to be questioned...

Therefore, he is online atm and deserves a link from me:

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

I'm not a regular Twitch stream watcher. Very boring watching mediocre players play poker.

Doug's was awesome. Great energy, you know he's got some showmanship in him.
I watched for 4hrs. Very entertaining.

He must be exhausted, dude was making sure there's no dead time. Always bringin out the energy and enthusiasm for his "show" (it's wayyyyyy better than a standard poker stream)

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

Watched for a few hours yesterday. As a guy who used to spend ****ton of time watching all kinds of popular streamers throughout the whole twitch platform, I will say that Doug definitley has the energy, charisma and personality to become one of the top streamers, given time and practice. Plus it really does help to be inarguably the best HUNL player in the world. Keep it up!

Was trying to check out the stream, but you actually have to be a subscriber to watch the past broadcasts... Never seen this before. Gotta earn those cheeseburgers I guess

Yeh the first one wasn't like that I watched it on the replay. Would like to watch but it's middle of the night when they stream. Seems unfair that Id have to pay because im not awake to watch it live. I mean its $5, but it's the principle.

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

I was watching him last night play some cash. He's a very entertaining streamer, that's for sure. I wish him luck.

Not that it matters, but is he a gay man? I'm just wondering.

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

Thanks for all of the positive feedback guys! Glad to hear people are enjoying my work that I have done so far.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to improve my stream. I am always trying to play more GTO and I have much to learn in this crazy world of twitch streaming.

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

I am going to be streaming 2 pm - 6 pm PST, and after 6 just as long as I feel good streaming. (Also depends on viewers). I will be streaming 2-3 times a week, probably always friday/sunday. (Although nothing is set in stone).

Re: Doug Polk starting to stream

It's great to be able to play my stakes against someone who is both good at poker, and is streaming. Maybe I can pick up some tricks even if you are not deep in explanation.

Also it's a top content from a viewer perspective as well. Loved your reaction when you didn't win both runs vs me AK vs J9 on all hearts flop.

Good stories, overall very positive mood on video and in chat, which is rare on twitch. Keep it up!

I think you should start with boosting your filler words vocabulary. Too much "Let's see" for me.

Was good playing the other day. I thought you played well overall fwiw. That was pretty sick when I lost to J9hh, the chances of that...

Thanks for the compliments and ill try to work in a better variety of language. I said lets see way too many times, I also said thats whats up too many times, gotta mix up more language. Good tip!
