Doug Polk posted a video on YouTube in which he talks about a challenge that assumed he would turn $100 into $10,000. He also said that he will stop playing poker for good, due to the lack of satisfaction from the game anymore.

Doug Polk admits he has once done something like now, with the bankroll challenge. It was at the beginning of his career when he made a deposit worth $50 and he won the life he was always dreaming about. Now something has ended however.

" The worst part is that I will probably disappoint many of my fans, but the truth is playing poker has not been giving me satisfaction for some time now. It was a grind, hard work. I'll turn 30 this year and have been a poker player for over ten years. The game is not so pleasant for me as it was and I feel I do not develop."

Polk knows that the best moments in his life are connected with high stakes, other players and the pursuit to “solve” poker games. He sadly realized that most of his friends do not play poker anymore. They used the money they won to open companies.

"– Since the people I like spending time with do not play poker, the game does not give me any satisfaction and my personal growth is very slow, the question remains why I would be playing it? I have been asking this one for over a year. I hoped it would all come back, for example on Super High Roller Bowl, but it has not. I want to be honest with myself and you and I simply don't feel like a poker player anymore.

– I consider many options. I surely will be working on Upswing Poker, and on the channel I have recently created. I will dedicate myself to creating mainstream contents on YouTube. This is what I want to do now. In life and poker I love competition. I need to go after something, search for perfection. I guess I will take this path. If you want to help me out, feel welcome."

It seems to be not very profitable in the long run to play those kind of hands. - Gus Hansen

I think he is just going to take a long break but its really hard to quit forever.

He'll probably take a break and eventually return for WSOP or some other big tournament.
