Back Story

  • Ryan Fee is a co-founder along with Doug Polk of Upswing Poker, a poker coaching site. 
  • Polk beat Negreanu in their High Stakes Feud heads-up match booking a whopping  profit of $1,200,000 over 25,000 hands.
  • A portion of that money made its way to Fee and ultimately a brand new Lamborghini with customized plates that read  "TYDNEGS", short for "Thank You Daniel Negreanu".
  • Fee reportedly had a side bet related to the grudge match. Lamborghinis typically start at around $200,000 in price.

The Side Bet

  • Shaun Deeb had bet that Doug Polk would not win by a margin of more than $1.1 million, and looked odds on to collect until Negreanu fell apart over the last 1,000 hands. Deeb only lost $10,000, so he won’t be too upset, even if losing was a little unexpected.

Who is Ryan Fee

  • Fee, who resides in Laguna Nigucl, CA, has $3,090,814 in live poker earnings and ranks 49th on California's all-time list.
  • He won a bracelet at the 2016 World Series of Poker $ 1,000 No Limit Hold'em Tag Team (2-4 person teams) (Event #61) taking home $ 76,679.
  • His biggest cash was a 2nd place finish at the 2014 HK$ 500,000 Super High Roller
