Top Poker Tweets: Upcoming 2017 WSOP!

Phil GalfondHere are a selection of some of the top tweets coming from your favorite pros over the past week, starting with Doyle Brunson’s announcement that he was not only considering playing at this year’s WSOP for the first time since 2013, but also playing in all of the Series’ $10k events, depending upon his wife’s “health issues”. As one fan called Darren Johnson subsequently tweeted on Doyle’s twitter account:
“Awesome to hear @TexDolly could be around WSOP this year. Maybe he can run over my foot on his scooter that’s how I met him back in 2005.”
Always happy to indulge in a bit of good-natured banter with his fans, the 83 “Godfather of Poker” then quickly fired back:
“I’m afraid you are one of many. I keep my scooter in rabbit mode, this year I’ll put it in turtle mode.”
In the meantime, the rest of the poker playing community are also gearing up for six weeks of non-stop WSOP action starting May 28th, and here are some tweets coming from the pros in anticipation of the upcoming tournament poker extravaganza:
