Joey Ingram

Joey Ingram, aka "Chicago Joey," has established himself as one of the most entertaining characters and content creators in poker. Putting out his first vlogs over nine years ago, he's been more consistent in producing content in the past four to five years, and it's been quite varied.

Many of his videos are episodes of his live recorded podcast, the Poker Life Podcast, where he gets some of the biggest names in both online and live poker. Other videos deal with hot poker topics of the day, recaps of big televised poker moments, and strategy in both no-limit hold'em and "the great game" of pot-limit Omaha.

However, over the last year, Ingram's output on YouTube has been almost nonexistent.

Doug Polk

One of the most successful poker YouTube channels of all time belongs to Doug Polk, who has taken a step back from poker in the past year-plus. In December 2017, he switched his focus from building up a huge following on his poker YouTube channel to launching a channel dedicated to cryptocurrency. That channel has done quite well, too, with over 193,000 subscribers, but unfortunately for many, the crypto sphere is not as strong as it once was at the height of its bull run.

After a brief retirement from poker, Polk is firmly back in the fold and continues providing some poker hand analysis and highlighting some of the major news and drama of the industry, all with his signature touch of dry comedy. However, he'll be the first to point out his videos aren't actually vlogs in the traditional sense of the word.
