Alec Torelli Responds to Doug Polk Angling Accusation: Purposely Edited Video

Poker pro Alec Torelli has finally responded to accusations leveled against him by fellow pro Doug Polk back in May related to angling on the television show Poker Night in America.

Jon Phil of PokerTube.com attempted to explain the controversy:

“In no-limit games the effective stack is a major variable in every decision you make, so keeping your big chips where they can be seen is the polite thing to do. How big a difference this makes in practice was demonstrated beautifully on Poker Night in America recently when a pair of $5,000 chips in Alec Torelli’s stack were tucked away out of sight and caught Daniel Wolf out for an extra 100 big blinds.”

Polk went all-into the fray, stating that “Without a doubt… it’s against the rules,” as the big chips have to be out front or on top, visible to all at the table – clearly not the case as his close-up of the table shows.

“This is something you learn pretty early on when you learn to play mid-to-high stakes poker,” Polk said.

In Torelli’s response, he claims the screen shots were not accurate and edited “unpurpose to make it seem like I lied to the floor about the position of my chips”.

This story continues to get a lot of traction this week.  Watch below
