Doug Polk & Ryan Fee win the $1,000 Tag Team No-Limit Hold’em for $153,358

A new form of poker is added to the schedule of this year’s World Series of Poker – Tag Team Poker. The $1,000 buy-in is split among 2-4 players on every team and those teammates can tag in and out at any point their teammate is not in an active hand. Every player on the team needs to play at least one orbit and each teammate must check in at their table prior to the end of late registration. A fun new format, especially for Doug Polk and Ryan Fee. Out of 863 entrants, their team was number one after three days of play.
