Best Poker Tweets: WSOP Runner-Up Savaged by Grandma!

WSOP Runner-Up Savaged by Grandma!Just over a week ago, Scott Blumstein defeated fellow US player Daniel Ott (photo) heads-up to claim the 2017 WSOP Main Event title for $8.15 million. While Ott still collected a massive $4.7 million for his runner-up finish, it turns out one of his harshest critics was none other than his dear old grandma, and as the 26 year-old Pennsylvania pro tweeted:
“I saw my grandma yesterday for the first time since being home and the first thing she did was talk shit on my HU game.”
Ott’s twitter fans obviously enjoyed the humor of the comment, and as one follower by the name of Allen Watson responded:
“Best tweet I’ve seen in a long while. Ask her where she was while u were playing in the biggest poker game on earth! #SavageGrandma”
Another thing his followers all seemed to agree on was that Ott had the worse of it as far as his cards were concerned during the heads-up battle, and as tirty8 summed up:
“Dude, your cards were sooooo bad heads up! I can’t blame you because the deck ran cold.”
Still, Ott had a mere $3,656 in live tournament earnings before hitting the score of a lifetime, not to mention all the other benefits which come with it. As Matt Kronk then pointed out:
“You played great man congrats on making it to heads up that’s an accomplishment in itself bro.. And you like quadrupled your Twitter followers in a week, which is pretty cool.”
Elsewhere, one player who has been decrying his luck recently is Allen Kessler, who after suffering one more bad beat wrote:
“So frustrating. Lose 2 allins today Aces to AKhh and now Kings to A9off. What is guy thinking calling off with A9 on 943 rainbow 5 ways?.. My summer in a nutshell.”
It didn’t take long, though, for fellow pro Mike Dentale to chip in with:
“Don’t you mean your career?”
Talking of ‘Big Slick’, Steve O’Dwyer noted during one of his poker sessions recently:
“Play has been so boring so far today that I heard @MagicAntonio say “big slick” and spent the next 10 mins looking at these search results
