Now Polk Fires Shots Back At Torreli

And so the Alec Torelli did he/didn’t he angle shoot controversy rumbles on as Doug Polk hits back at Torreli’s recent YouTube video.

It’s becoming more about Polk and Torreli than it is Daniel “Cletus” Wolf who was the player going heads up against Torelli during a Poker Night in America recording when the latter noticed $10,000 in chips hidden behind the rest of Torreli’s stack.

Watch Polk take to Joey Ingram’s Poker Life Podcast to hear what he has to say.

Can Chris Ferguson Be World Series of Poker Player of The Year?

After making his comeback appearance at last year’s World Series of Poker, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, considered by many to be responsible for the downfall of Full Tilt after Black Friday which left players without access to their funds for years, is in the running to become this year’s Player of the Year after cashing for the fourteen time this series.

His fourteen cash came after finishing 277th in the $888 Crazy Eights event for $3,611. This broke last year’s record of thirteen cashes from Roland Israelashvili. Since breaking the record, two other players have tied it: Ryan Hughes and 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event runner-up John Racener.

Ferguson’s latest cash puts him in 4th place for WSOP Player of the Year, where a strong finish to the Series (particularly in the Main Event) could catapult him to the top and into the spotlight once again.

Clearly last years heckling from the rail did nothing to dissuade Ferguson from coming back this year and grinding it out at the tables.

WATCH: Alec Torelli Responds to Doug Polk’s Angle Shooting Video

Alec Torelli has taken to YouTube to address Doug Polk’s angle shooting allegations following his Poker Night in America hand with Daniel “Cletus” Wolf.

It seems like Torelli had $10,000 in chips hidden behind the rest of his stack, but it was how he dealt with it that Polk calls into question more than if it was an actual attempt to angle shoot.

See what Torelli has to say here.

By the looks of Twitter though, Polk still doesn’t think the video really addressed the issue of Torelli’s behaviour.
