Top Poker Tweets from 2017 WSOP (Week 5)

Top Poker Tweets from 2017 WSOP (Week 5)The 2017 has now completed five of its seven week schedule, with event 63 getting underway later today, and event #74: the $10,000 World Championship scheduled to kick-off on the 10th July.
One of the pros that has been going all out to win a 7th career gold bracelet in Las Vegas is Daniel Negreanu, who prior to the Series starting released a busy itinerary in which he would enter 40 of this year’s 74 featured WSOP events. However, the 42 year-old Hall of Famer has now decided to refine his efforts, having already cashed in at nine tournaments, and as he tweeted recently:
“Not playing the $5k NLH event today and will be playing fewer events from here on out. $50k, main event, and maybe one or two others.”
According to the explanation that followed, Negreanu has now given up trying to compete for the POY award and as he subsequently explains:
“Yeah, too hard to win without all the points from small buy in large field events that I don’t play.. You really can’t win if you don’t play those events so I gave up on it. Not an award I want to win this year.”
In the meantime, another WSOP legend, Phil Hellmuth has cashed in at six events so far, including a 10th place finsih at the $111,111 NLHE High Roller for One Drop (Event #6) for $312,006. However, Hellmuth is looking forward to see if he can repeat his feat of 1989 and win another WSOP Main Event, but as he tweeted:
“Biggest challenge of the year! Hold it together for 5 grueling days, through exhaustion & adversity, and #PlayGreatPoker #ManUpOrGoHome.”
Phil Ivey, on the other hand, despite holding 10 WSOP bracelets, is more intent on spending his time at the high-stakes cash tables, with his last official tweet dating all the way back to September of last year. Rumor has it, though, that he may be putting in a rare apperance at the $10k Main Event, so here’s hoping.
Here are some other tweets coming from your favorite pros over the past week:
Allen Kessler

Todd Brunson
“So unlucky. Three table cards to draw from. Two tables great, one horrible. Guess which I drew? Lol.. Pocket kings vs pocket aces first hand. Sigh”
Keith Lutz
“You know what KK vs. AA in the 1st hand reminds me of? It reminds of the guy who has a winning lottery ticket, but gets run over by a bus.”
