Holz, Polk Pledge 1% of Poker Masters Profits to Social Media Follower

Saturday, September 16th, 2017

fedor-holz-2016-wsop-one-dropFedor Holz and Doug Polk have both proposed a unique offer, whereby they’ll give 1% of their Poker Masters profits to a social media follower.

This could end up being a lot because the Poker Masters series features some of the game’s biggest tournament prize pools.

Case in point, Nick Schulman just won $918,000 in the Event #1: $50,000 no-limit Texas hold’em event. If Polk or Holz won this amount, $9,180 would go to one of their social media followers.

Held at the Aria Resort and Casino, the Poker Masters series will feature four $50,000 buy-in tournaments, a $100,000 buy-in event, and re-entries for all of these tourneys.

Poker Masters Schedule for Polk and Holz

doug-polk-poker-mastersPolk says that he’ll enter every event at the 2017 Poker Masters. But he won’t be exercising his rebuy option.

The 29-year-old poker pro said that if he doesn’t cash at all, he’ll still give $500 to the winner of the social media contest.

This isn’t the only time that Polk has given away part of his tournament winnings. He did the same at the 2017 WSOP, offering 2% of his winnings to social media followers. Polk gave away over $30,000 following his win in the $111,111 buy-in One drop High Roller ($3.6 million).

Holz and Polk aren’t collaborating on the social media giveaways. But Holz’s promotion is similar to Polk’s. The German poker star has asked fans to share his “Life of a Champion” video and download his Primed Mind coaching app to participate. There’s no word on if Holz will still pay social media followers if he fails to cash.

Two Great Poker Players

Fedor Holz has $23,904,884 in poker tournament winnings, including a rapid flurry of high-roller cashes in recent years. So he’s a good bet to do well at the Poker Masters.

Doug Polk has $8,842,008 in poker winnings, despite the fact that he mostly plays online and live cash games. Around 40% of Polk’s live tourney earnings come from his victory in the $111k One Drop.
