Guest: Doug Polk

UPC was honored to host Doug Polk, one of the best Heads Up Hold ‘Em specialists in the world. We held a Q&A session followed by a short tournament with Doug.

On January 24, 2016, we were excited to welcome Doug Polk to our campus. We began with a Q&A session, where UPC members asked Doug about his life, his experiences, and high stakes poker in general. Doug graciously shared some of his better stories, along with some advice for our members. Afterwards, we took a group picture and gave individual members an opportunity to meet Doug and take pictures. Finally, we held a short tournament, where members were able to test their skills against one of the best in the world. While Doug did end up busting from the tournament, he definitely gave our club an experience to remember.

We would like to congratulate Bradley Guan for winning the tournament. He successfully navigated through the field in the early stages of the tournament, and skillfully played the final table to come out on top. He ended up eliminating his roommate, David Hua, who became our second place finisher. The winning hand was King Ten offsuit. The prizes for Bradley were two signed (by Doug) sets of Copag playing cards. Our third place finisher was Daniel Lei.
