WSOP Europe Tweets From Cannes

The World Series of Poker Europe kicked-off in Cannes on Friday, and the prestigious tournament series is already breaking records.
Not only can Switzerland now boast its first ever WSOP bracelet winner in the guise of Event 1 champion Guillaume Humbert, but Event 2 has also set a WSOPE record for attendance with a field of 771 competitors way ahead of the record set in 2009 at the £1,000 NL event of 608.
The seven bracelet series with 51 side events has succeeded in drawing some of the top pros around the world hoping for WSOP glory. They have also been taking to their twitter accounts to relay their experiences from the French Riviera, with a few selected tweets as follows:
Daniel Negreanu
WSOPE vs WSOP value of bracelet: identical. The events should draw pretty big numbers and also boast tough fields. Most big names are here.
…If I don’t win a bracelet I’m going to blame it all on @twojacksjoe for keeping me out way too late. Debating late revving today…
Phill Hellmuth
Player of the Year: Ben Lamb 759 pts (minimum, w a 9th place in WSOP Main–9 left) Phil Hellmuth 755.2 pts. 5 events left; I’M NOT DONE!
Bryan Devonshire
Turns out the ringneck dove that hangs on our balcony prefers croissant over baguette. Scraping off a hangover from Morrison’s last night.

Bah, busted. Ran a huge bluff on Hellmuth who made a good call, and then 4b induced into him with AJ thought he was weak, he had JJ.
John Racener
WOW the French Riviera is pretty cool site. Just had dinner then went for a stroll with @kyrashields. #livinlife

Freddy Deeb
Busted 15th place from event #1 of @WSOP had a great run but i got unlucky at the end
Jason Mercier
Brian Hastings funded our 4 way Chinese game on the flight. Somehow he lost over 100 points in the first 15 hands … I won 35 pts +350€
