Top Poker Tweets from 2017 WSOP (Week 6)

Top Poker Tweets from 2017 WSOP (Week 6)The 2017 WSOP have now completed six weeks of its seven week schedule, with just the $10,000 Main Event and the $1,111 Little One for One Drop left to be completed. One player who is having a WSOP he would rather forget, though, is 8-times bracelet holder Erik Seidel, who has yet to book a single cash at this year’s Series. It would seem that a fortnight ago the 57 year-old poker legend subsequently decided that a break is just what the poker doctor ordered, and as he tweeted yesterday:
“Back from 2 week family vaca to Galapagos + Peru. Will post a few pics on IG @seidelpics, both places even more beautiful than the Rio.”
In the meantime, Andy Frankenberger has been contemplating his almost 2 month long stint at the Rio, and as he commented recently:
“You know I’ve been at WSOP too long when I think to myself: $2 apple is decent value, compared to a $2 banana.”
Len Ashby, on the other hand, has been giving his opinion as to the decor at the Bellagio, and as he tweeted:
“It may be time for a whole remodel and renovation, I mean I love @BellagioPoker but we’ve been staring at Annie Duke on the wall too long.”
While Frankenberger considers the prices at the Rio, and Ashby expresses his distaste as to the Bellagio’s decor, spare a thought for poor Bobby Baldwin who suffered a serious accident at the Aria, and as his friend Doyle Brunson explains:
“Bobby Baldwin slipped and feel down two flights of stairs today at the Aria. Broke shoulders, pelvis, ribs and severe head injury.#prayers.. [update] Nurse..You look good for a 67 year old man… Bobby Baldwin..Tx, u should have seen me before I fell. Typical Baldwin. He is going to be ok.”
Finally, the WSOP has now named its 10 finalists for this year’s Hall of Fame, who are Matt Savage, Max Pescatori, David Ulliott, David Chiu, Mori Eskandani, Ted Forrest, Thor Hansen, Phil Ivey, Mike Matusow and Huck Seed. As a result, the players thoughts have started turning towards their picks for who should be chosen as this year’s worthy winner, and here area couple of the views being expressed:
Allen Kessler
“Who are your picks. Obv @philivey but second pick is close between @HuckleberrySeed @themouthmatusow and @Forrestted”
Phil Hellmuth
“Re: the Poker Hall of Fame, Phil Ivey deserves 100% of votes!! However, Mori Eskandani has done more for pokers popularity than anyone else.”
