Poker Tweets: WCOOP 2017 Main Event!

Poker Tweets: WCOOP 2017 Main Event!The 2017 World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) got underway on PokerStars at the beginning of September, with just a couple more days now left to run before its 81 event chedule draws to a close. As you might expect, attracting a great deal of interest is its $5,200 Main Event, which started on Sunday and attracted 2,183 players, all looking to carve out a slice of its $10 million guaranteed prize pool.
One of the players giving the tournament his best shot is French pro Bertrand Grospellier, who tweeted the following message:
“Finally in the #WCOOP2017 Main Event on @PokerStars !!! Best of Luck to everyone for the biggest day of online poker”
Not so lucky Daniel Negreanu, though, who had a bit of technical difficulty ahead of the event, which subsequently left him all steamed up. As the Canadian pro then tweeted:
“Currently on massive monkey tilt. In Canada trying to reg for WCOOP main event last 90 min and can’t get in. Ready to smash my laptop.”
At least Shaun Deeb experienced some good fortune, this time around by doing a bit of due dilligence before heading off to play in the contest, and as he explained:
“Just saved myself over 1k checking for passport before booking flight and hotel for wcoop main #itsmissing”
Polk Advice
In the meantime, Doug Polk has been handing out some life advice based upon his experience at the poker tables, and as he wrote:
“One of the toughest aspects of life is deciding the right amount of risk to take in spots. Don’t be a nit, but also never go all-in”
It seems like Allen Kessler might have enjoyed a more entertaining time if he had checked out Polk’s twitter account ahead of his latest poker game, though, and as he tweeted in frustrating:
“Ugh busted @TVPokerRoom literally played 1 hand in 45 mins only to get JTcc allin reraised by A8hh. Hit ten on flop but villain rivered flush.”
Here are some other amusing tweets coming from your favorite pros over the past week, starting with a discussion about Obamacare, and finishing with an end of the world prediction:
Team Out East fan
“With all due respect, at your age and wealth, this doesn’t effect you in an extreme way regardless. Why do you care?”
Doyle Brunson
“Thanks for the respect but did you think that I might have kids? Wealth? Have you seen all the empty rubber bands in my lockbox?”
“Doyle cares because he is a true American. Wealth and age have nothing to do with respect and love for country.”
Nolan Dalla
“Some people are saying the world’s gonna’ end on Sept. 23rd. Good. That means I’ll put off paying my bookie until the 24th.”
Lacey Jones
“What’s the longest you ever slept? I just did 15 hours after a rough international flight!”
