Doug Polk Announces Podcast Series to Rank the Best Poker Players of All Time

Doug Polk has announced that he is going to run a new podcast series, where he will rank the greatest poker players of all time sorted by different categories such as cash game, tournament, Heads-Up, Sit & Go and so on.

The retired heads-up star plans to lay out the case for each player on a shortlist of around 100 over the next few episodes, followed by a vote to pick a top 20.

Doug Polk to Run Podcast Series of Best Poker Players of All Time

Polk started with a top 100 poker players list of his own choosing and then asked for opinions on who he missed out and who should be snubbed.

Now the Arguing Starts

The poker community is as argumentative as any other population we can mention. Highly opinionated to say the least.

For that reason, the debate on who should be in or out is likely to be super entertaining with many knowledgeable commentators having their opinions ignored.

The Twitter thread was quick to see many new lists posted, as well as addition featuring the same few players. One in particular was Jon van Fleet, better known by his online moniker Apestyles.

Controversially, perhaps, Doug Polk wrote that somebody who has played only online MTTs their whole career is unlikely to ever be a candidate for a top 20 player of all time.

Chris Moorman was another omission which seemed strange.

Doug Polk in $200,000 Bodyfat Loss Prop Bet with Bill Perkins

Doug Polk looks to have been a busy guy since returning from his honeymoon last year. Full of new ideas for his podcasting career and also fresh motivation regarding his personal fitness.

During last year many people commented online about how healthy Polk was looking, no doubt driven by a desire to look his best on his wedding photographs.

“No secrets”, Polk said, “only good nutrition and hard work in the gym.

To that end, Polk has engaged in a $200,000 prop bet with Bill Perkins to lose half of his bodyfat in a year.

13.85% bodyfat is the target, which should be easily achievable in 12 months. One wonders why Bill Perkins has signed Doug Polk up to such as easy challenge when he doesn’t even need the money.
