The 32-year-old “retired” poker pro hasn’t revealed much beyond the wedding photo above, shared on both Twitter and Instagram. That gave poker fans the opportunity to not only congratulate Mr and Mrs Polk, but also to land a few good-hearted jokes at his expense.

While the likes of Jeff Gross, Jaime Staples, and Bill Perkins, were wishing the happy couple well, ‘Dan @boilerdan10’ tweeted the hilarious:

“Can only imagine a @DougPolkVids wedding… ‘Doug, do you take this woman bla bla bla as long as you both shall live?’ ‘I think I’m good with all 3 options here. There’s merit to calling. There’s merit to folding…'”

Others to poke good-natured fun at Doug on the biggest day of his life followed suit…

  • – I’m hoping there was a tank top somewhere in that ensemble.
  • – Congratulations. I have to ask: Did you finally find someone who’s better than you heads up?
  • – Congratulations. Pokernews Headline: Doug Polk loses 50% of his bankroll in one afternoon session.

Mark Attridge produced one of the best “poker congrats” of the day:

Congratulations Doug! Deffo been dealt a pair of Aces there. Wishing you both every luck on the flop, turn and river. I am sure you will both extract max value on every street!❤️❤️❤️

Polk’s personal life has been a lot less public than his poker life, but the last few years have seen him share photos of his travels with Kaitlin on Instagram, a trip to Europe seeing the pair take in the sights and sounds of Edinburgh…

…as well as a Merry Christmas in matching checks from the Polk family!

PokerTube wishes the happy couple all the very best in their new life as a married couple.
