WCGRider is the username of American online poker professional Douglas Polk. His name comes from when he used to compete in other games years ago, with WCG standing for World Cyber Games.
He also goes under the same nickname on Full Tilt Poker. Douglas started playing poker in 2007. He began by depositing just $20 online, playing $0.01/.02 at first, and then slowly building up his bankroll from there. He then moved from the 6-max and full-ring games over to heads up, where he has stayed. Since then he has played almost no live poker, saying that "you've got to stick to what you're strong at, and my real strength is online heads up."
He specialises in No Limit, taking on almost all opponents, and has been playing as high as $100/$200. He was first seen on our tracking ($25/50+) on Pokerstars on March 9, 2011. As of Black Friday, on Full Tilt Poker he is up $139,548 over 13,345 hands under the name WCGRider.
