Online high-stakes legend and a WSOP bracelet winner, Doug "WCGRider" Polk, took down yesterday 2016 SCOOP event #43-High, while streaming live on his channel.

It was not the first time Polk takes down a big tournament victory while streaming to his 15,000 Twitch followers. In April, Polk took down a $700 buy-in "Kilimanjaro" event on PokerStars for $162,000.

This time around, Polk earned $115,000, and what appears to be his career's first Spring Championship of Online Poker title for his victory:

SCOOP-43-H ($2,100 NL Hold'em  [1R1A] results

Entrants: 151
Prize pool: $500,000
Places paid: 18

Polk is also making a deep run in the $21K SCOOP Heads-Up event - he is among final eight players and has guaranteed at least $41K. He will be playing against Russia's Timofey "Trueteller" Kuznetsov in his next match later today when the tournament resumes.
