Daniel Negreanu, who is one of the most famous poker players in the world, currently has over 87,000 subscribers. Polk is a much more active Youtuber, which has helped to push his numbers above Negreanu's. There is no doubt that Negreanu will have more subscribers if he publishes more content.

Andrew Neeme (cash game player) - 56,135 subscribers

Jaime Staples - 40,944 subscribers

Parker Talbot - 33,333 subscribers
