Especially as there was a betting market on the occasion the place poker followers had cash driving on it. Over $100,000 was wagered with one single $50,000 guess.

The most believable clarification is that Polk was simply confused to see so many excessive stakes errors that he himself would by no means make. He even backtracked afterwards on Reddit and recommended his opponents had been simply drunk (each had been consuming through the match) or just weak at heads-up in comparison with the usual he was used to.
