It isn't Doug Polk's day so far. At the beginning of the day, he and Scott Seiver were talking about a side bet Polk made with Dan Smith about Smith not winning the €2,000 side event. Well Dan Smith díd win, and that supposedly costed Polk a good bundle of money. Today isn't a cheap day so far either, he just busted for the second time.
The biggest hit to his stack he took in a flush over flush situation. With a board of Polk bet out 15,600 with about 34,000 behind. His opponent was Anatoly Filatov who took his time to make his decision. Eventually he pushed a 48,000 stack forward, and now the real tanking began. Polk thought for a long time, and eventually couldn't get himself to fold.
Polk made the call and was immediately shown the ace-high flush: . Polk had but that hand was clearly no good.
With just 1,475 left, he found himself all in the next hand. He pushed, found a caller in Candido Goncalves, and Filatov isolated to 5,500. One player made the call, and action was back on Goncalves who resqueezed to 26,100. Filatov folded, and so did the other player (showing ).
Polk showed his and was up against . "Oh so nice!" Polk said after the on the flop. He spoke too soon though, the hit the turn and he was out of the tournament indefinitely. The completed the board, and Polk left the table, somehow still with a big smile on his face.
He walked to a nearby table with Ryan Fee on it; "What? You're out? Again?" Fee said. "Yeah I suck", Polk replied, "Yeah you suck!" Fee laughed, "And you can quote me on that" said Fee to us. Do with that what you want, but Polk can go home, he's not able to re enter another time.
