Poker YouTube vlogs are some of the best places to get our daily fix for quality content. It’s not all amazing though. The quality of what gets uploaded varies massively, and of course so does the popularity of the channel. Let’s take a look at who’s hot and who’s not in the Poker YouTube arena.


Andrew Neeme

Hailing from Michigan originally, Andrew Neeme has built one of the most popular YouTube vlogs out there over only the last 18 months. Sitting with 85K subscribers, Neeme details his journey on the live poker circuit grinding mainly $5/$10 No Limit cash games. This lifestyle resonates with many of his viewers as this is the run of the mill schedule of many professionals in the USA.

Neeme’s viewers keep on returning because his down-to-earth manner has them believing they can emulate what he does if they put in enough work.

Jake Cody

Jake Cody is an Englishman with a serious passion for what he does. The high-stake regular has accumulated $4.5 million in live tournament winnings and 18 months ago set out to record his balla lifestyle for his fans. Having built up to more than 12K subscribers off the bat he then disappeared due to personal issues. Now, after his roulette stunt in Nottingham turned out well, he has declared his intention to produce more vlogs in the near future.

This vlog has amazing potential for the future, even if it isn’t popping right now. Well worth checking out.

Doug Polk Poker

Doug Polk is the marmite of poker – love him or hate him. At 185K subscribers he’s the biggest one man show in the poker niche, but it’s undeniable that his commitment to putting out lots of high-quality poker content has dwindled somewhat. This is, of course, because of his cryptocurrency channel that he runs as well. Not enough hours in the day it seems.

There’s plenty to look back over here, particularly with interesting hands played by well-known players, but, as for the future, it’s impossible to know if Polk will ever put his life and soul back into his content.

ConsciousPoker

Alec Torelli is a great example of a guy who tries his best at the vlogging game. He really does leave no stone unturned when it comes to a bit of self-promotion. The results are a bit of a mixed bag though. For all the glitz and polish we can see on the content, he really should have more to show for his efforts.

After four years of putting out content on a regular basis Torelli has built up his subscriber list to only 35K. Many vloggers would be proud of this total, but for all the hours put in it should be a lot more. That said, this is still a vlog worth checking out, but it’s not one that we expect to see going places anytime soon. The peak viewing figures came a year ago during the “hidden chips” controversy; usually the channel doesn’t surpass 200K views in a month.

Jaime Staples

Jaime Staples was one of the original trailblazers on the Twitch platform. He also decided to jump on the YouTube bandwagon and upload vlogs about his progress in the poker world.

Staples comes across as just an ordinary guy making his way as a tournament player. He doesn’t play the highest stakes either, but we are unlikely to find anyone else in this niche as passionate. He puts his heart and soul into what he does, and this shows in the great content he puts out, and that is also improving constantly.
