Top Poker Tweets: Poker Brat versus Polk Slapdown!

Top Poker Tweets: Poker Brat versus Polk Slapdown!In the twitterverse this week, 14-times WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth took time out to promote his autobiography called “Poker Brat”, and even posted a photo of himself surrounding by a group of security guards. As the tweet that accompanied the picture stated:
“A phalanx of security for me today after my “Poker Brat” book signing @MallOfAmerica NYTimes best seller soon? #PHNiceLife #POSITIVITY”.
Doug Polk, on the other hand, took the opportunity to throw down the gauntlet to Hellmuth ahead of their “King of the Hill” $50,000 heads-up poker tournament later this month, which also includes Daniel Cates, and Frank Kassela, with Polk recording a slapdown video which he subsequently posted online:

In the meantime, the luck of Kyle Cartwright has continued after the poker pro struck yet another slot jackpot, this time for $100,000, and as he tweeted:
“Sooooooo dead serious first night playing since vegas.. Lets gooooo.. lol ya had not played one single hand since the last one i hit in vegas.. so fucking wild”
News of Cartwright’s win subsequently invoked a number of humorous, and slightly envious responses from his followers, including these:
Phil Hui
“lol it’s his third one since June he’s laxxed as a mug”
Mike Matusow
“This guy doesnt know it but hes dead broke within 5 yrs worst thing ever is to win a jackpot like this”
