Top Poker Tweets from WSOP 2017 (Week 1)

Top Poker Tweets from WSOP 2017 (Week 1) With the 2017 World Series of Poker currently underway in Las Vegas, here are a selection of some of the top tweets coming from your favorite pros over the past week, starting with 10-times bracelet winner Doyle Brunson responding to a fan who accused the 83 year-old of bluffing when he said that he was “thinking about playing all the 10k events”, depending upon his wife’s health. As Doyle subsequently tweeted:
“I wasn’t bluffing. I just forgot how late you have to stay up. My wife won’t go to sleep until I get home regardless of what I want.”
In the meantime, another two legends of the game narrowly missed out on securing further WSOP glory at the Rio, with Danile Negreanu falling short of a 7th career WSOP bracelet after finishing 3rd at the $10,000 NLHE Tag Team Championship, and Phil Hellmuth finishing the $111,111 NLHE High Roller for One Drop event in 10th for $312,006, after which he wrote:
“Had a chance to make some history. Played 4 @WSOP “One Drops” total, could have been first to make 3 final tables: needed 9th, finished 10th”
Faring better, however, was Liv Boeree and her partner Igor Kurganov who together captured their first career WSOP bracelets while competing at the $10k Tag Team Event. Before the tournament, the couple had promised to give half their winnings to charity, and as Boeree later tweeted:
“thank you! We had decided before the event to donate 50% of whatever we won in this tourney to @REGcharity , so I guess karma is real!”
The charitable donation has also been mirrored by other recognizable pros at the Series, including Doug Polk who is giving away 2% of his WSOP profits at this year’s competition, including from the One Drop event.
Here are some other messages coming from notable pros currently in action in Las Vegas:
Betrand Grospellier
“Another dream day at the @WSOP tables, started and ended with chip lead as we reached the FT of 9 in the #OneDrop”
Melanie Weisner
“I have cashed the colossus on my 23rd bullet and it just feels so right. #WSOP”
Kevin MacPhee
“Took a break from the WSOP grind to watch @modestmouseband at @brooklynbowl last night. Great show! Somehow up at 10am for the Colossus”
Phil Galfond
“Seems everyone agrees so far. I’m not trying to complain – @WSOP does lots well. @WSOPTD, where/how can pros constructively suggest changes?”
