Doug "WCGRider" Polk won the $111,111 One Drop High Roller event for 3.686.865$! This was one of the biggest prizes of the 2017 World Series of Poker (WSOP) to be taken home, and he managed to do that after defending Bertrand "Elky" Grospellier in the heads-up.

Besides Polk and Grospellier, the final table featured players like Andrew "good2cu" Robl, 2016 Super High Roller Bowl winner Rainer Kempe, 2014 WSOP Main Event Champion Martin Jacobson and sports-betting guru Haralabos Voulgaris. This one, without a doubt, probably the thoughest final table that will happen this year.

ElkY started the final table as the chip leader but Polk steamrolled to victory once the play got down last four players. Polk first eliminated Voulgaris in fourth place with pocket aces. Brief moment after that Dario Sammartino also lost his chops to Polk, leaving ElkY and Polk in a final heads-up.

The final match started and Polk soon won a big pot against Grospellier in a hand where the French pro had flopped top two pair with J-T. However, after calling Grospellier's check-raise on the flop, Polk hit better two pair on the turn and ended up taking down a massive pot. ElkY failed to climb back and in the end lost the title to Polk.

There was also some additional drama during the final table as Polk and Voulgaris had discovered something was wrong with the cards they were playing. Some of the cards were marked and in the end - replaced.

This was third WSOP bracelet and the biggest ever live cash for Polk, who is now nearing $9 million in total live tournament earnings.
