Douglas Polk beat Bill Perkins

Renowned American poker player and one of the best heads-up players in the world Douglas Polk is enjoying "an honorable retirement" after moving from the world's gambling capital Las Vegas to Austin, Texas.

Despite of the great success in online poker and beating Daniel Negreanu over $1.2 million in their epic battle, Polk claims about feeling "poor" in those parts, as he tweeted the other day.

Still, Douglas doesn't mind taking part in high stakes heads-up challenges. The other day he won another one-on-one online battle against another famous poker player.
