Best Poker Instagram Accounts You Need to be Following [2018]

Best Poker Instagram Accounts
Instagram has really blown up in recent years as arguably the #1 social media platform. And poker players have taken to it in large numbers.

It's kind of a perfect match after all. Because poker is a very visual game and Instagram is the perfect way to share all your poker triumphs (and defeats) with the world!

So in this article I am going to list the best poker instagram accounts that you should be following in 2018.


1. Nathan Williams


Ok, so I am going to be completely and utterly biased here and list my own poker Instagram account as the #1.

Now is it really the best one? Probably not. But since this is my blog I can rig the voting!

All kidding aside, what you will find on my poker instagram account is the day to day life of an online poker player living in Thailand and traveling around the world.



I don't post chip stack pics from stuffy card rooms or more rehashed quotes. Because quite frankly you can get that on a million other poker Instagram accounts!

I post instead about the real lifestyle of an online poker pro living in SouthEast Asia and exploring various exotic locations around the globe.

I also throw in some fitness stuff because that is a big passion of mine and I consider it to be the key to success at the poker tables and beyond in life.

2. Doug Polk


Doug Polk is one of the biggest names in poker these days and he also has one of the most popular poker Instagram accounts.

As a high stakes poker pro Doug posts mostly about his life in and around the poker tables. So if he is playing a big tournament like the WSOP, he will post updates.

He also posts about his ongoing poker streaming such his recent bankroll challenge to turn $100 into 10k at the micro stakes poker tables online.

Lastly, he even posts about his video game streaming, crypto related activities and his dogs. Always entertaining and worth the follow for sure!

3. Joe Ingram


Joe Ingram runs the best poker podcast in the industry and also has a popular poker Instagram account.

He mostly posts clips from his Youtube videos and podcasts. But he will also post pics and clips of various high stakes pros who he runs into.

Such as Daniel Negreanu at the driving range.



Always entertaining, Joe Ingram always has his finger on the pulse of everything going in with online poker. Definitely worth your follow.

4. Patrik Antonius


Now not only is Patrik Antonius one of my all-time favorite poker players he has an awesome poker Instagram account that you should be following as well.

Patrik really focuses on the lifestyle of a high stakes tournament and cash game pro. While he mostly focuses on poker and chip stack updates, there is plenty about his day to day life and fitness as well.

If you want an inside look into what the good life is like for a successful high stakes poker pro, then this is the poker Instagram account to be following.

5. Fedor Holz


Fedor Holz is one of the winningest tournament poker players in recent years with tens of millions in earnings.

He is also now one of the all-time biggest winners in live poker tournament history. And to top it all off he is still only in his mid 20's!

Fedor also has one of the best poker Instagram accounts that you should following. He posts mostly about the lifestyle of a young phenom high stakes poker pro.

But you will also find plenty of pics from his travels around the world and his day to day life. Definitely worth your follow.

6. Nanonoko


Randy "Nanonoko" Lew is one of my all-time favorite online poker players (although he plays a fair bit live now too).

When I was first coming up in this game he was one of my online mass multi-tabling heroes. I couldn't believe that somebody could play that many tables while bluffing world class pros!

He also has a pretty sick poker Instagram account as well these days.

As a long time Team PokerStars Pro Randy travels the world a lot these days playing in big tournaments like the EPT, APT and WSOP.

Nanonoko's account is super focused on the poker and I wouldn't expect anything less from a true god of online mass multi-tabling. You should follow this guy.

7. Lex Veldhuis


Lex Veldhuis is also another online poker hero of mine from way, way back in the day. Known as "RaSZi" in Starcraft, I first discovered him there long before I ever heard about this poker thing.

For many years he was a mainstay in the mid and high stakes cash games and tourneys especially on PokerStars.

Now a Team Pro on PokerStars as well as one of the biggest poker Twitch streamers in the world, Lex has really made a big name for himself in this little card game we all love as well.

Lex's poker Instagram is mostly clips from his wildly popular Twitch poker channel where you should be watching him as well. I know I do!

8. Jonathan Little


Jonathan is a very popular poker player and poker author. He also has quite the resume of live poker success including WPT victories.

This is one of my favorite poker Instagram accounts to follow because Jonathan posts daily bits of poker knowledge which he calls "Little Poker Advice"

In these short clips Jonathan will teach you some new little tidbit of poker wisdom or poker strategy that will help you in your games.

Jonathan also frequently posts when he plays in big poker tournaments and a little bit about his personal life as well. Give this guy a follow!

9. Maria Ho


Alright, let's get some women on this list!

Maria Ho is one of my all-time favorite female poker players. She knows what she is doing on the poker felt and she also has one of the best poker Instagram accounts these days.

She posts about when she plays in big poker tournaments or cash games. But what I like more is that Maria posts a lot about the lifestyle of a successful poker pro.

She also has lots of pics with other famous poker players and celebs like Daniel Negreanu and Kevin Hart. Follow this girl!

10. Phil Hellmuth


It's Phil Hellmuth, do I even need to say anything more?

The "Poker Brat" is a 15 time WSOP bracelet winner and one of the most popular poker players in the world, known for his legendary rants and tirades at the poker table in particular.

How can you not love a guy whose poker Instagram handle is actually @beingthegreatest

Seriously though, Phil's poker Instagram account is one of the best ones out there. It is an inside look into the day to day life of one of the true legends of the game.

Not only does he post about all the big time poker tournaments that he plays in, but he includes pics of himself with all sorts of celebrities like Elon Musk and Tiger Woods.

I really don't have much more to say. It's Phil Hellmuth! Just go follow him already.
