2011 World Series of Twitter Day 5 - Hitchhikers, Monkees, and Cops
Today's World Series of Twitter final table centers mostly around Day 1 of the $1k Event at the 2011 WSOP.
In addition, we get sound advice about hitchhikers and find out why Roothlus almost went to jail on Friday.
In Seat 9, Jeff, aka Hooch474, shared with us the true secret of poker:
Hooch474 The secret to poker is: sing Kenny Rogers "The Gambler" aloud and incorrectly and piss off the rich geriatrics at the table..you're welcome
You've got to know when to fold em ... know when to roll up ... wait ...
From Seat 8, Steve Palmer learned the negative implications of fan obsession:
stevepalmer78 When my girlfriend said she was leaving me cos of my obsession with The Monkees, I thought she was joking........ And then I saw her face...
Now he's a believer.
Kevin MacPhee gives some sound advice to Liv Boeree from Seat 7:
KevinMacPhee @liv_boeree NEVER trust a man with a pig farm.
Now he has to go bring home the bacon. (Insert groan here.)
In Seat 6, PokerGrump tells us about the dealer at his table today:
@PokerGrump: This dealer looks just like John Goodman. The fact that she is a woman makes this most unfortunate.
Sadly, I really do think I know who he is talking about.
From Seat 5, Conan776 makes his bid to be the Rodney Dangerfield of poker:
Conan776 "I get no respect... when I move all-in, people from other tables call." - frob23
Look at it this way, at least the dealer didn't call.
From Seat 4, Adam Levy tells us why it is a good idea to get a signed contract should you ever rent a house in Vegas during the WSOP:
Roothlus So at 1:30AM last night one of the owners of our house showed up & called the cops on us for being intruders in the house we were renting...
Roothlus ...apparently the other owner never notified this owner about him renting the house out. So we had this whole ordeal to sort out last nite.
Roothlus Luckily we were able to get in touch with the other owner who explained everythinf and we didn't have to pack up and leave lol
There is nothing worse than being kicked out of your house for squatting.Â :-)
Rod U aka UR_PHATE told us from Seat 3 about his day in the $1k NL Hold'em Event at the 2010 WSOP. Apparently someone was giving him grief for texting/tweeting:
UR_PHATE Now he asks me what I'm doing. Told him I'm tweeting about his nice donation to me. "Idiot" is his response. YES!!!
Don't tap on the glass ... unless it gets you more chips.
In Seat 2, I actually got this comment from Facebook, but it was too good to not use. Beverly Cheney is a well known player and Tournament floorwoman, especially if you are from the south.
She ran across a sign that gave some really sound advice:
Beverly Herrington Cheney Just passed a sign "Prison Area - Do Not Pick Up Hitchhikers"...DANG! Was just about to stop for the cute guy in the striped pajamas.....rules, rules, rules!
I want to know why she was driving around a prison. Â :-)
Coming in at Seat 1 is Brandon Hall.Â He tells us about two people at his table that were in TV in 2009.
Unfortunately, one of those players would probably rather forget their TV appearance:
AreTheseUtz Lady at my table talkin about being on tv in 09, young kid says I was on tv in 09 too! It was the 37th episode of cops lol
Last year, I drove down Fremont Street at midnight on a Friday night playing the COPS theme song. A third of the people flipped me off, a third of the people started running, and a third of the people started fixing their hair and clothes because they thought they were going to be on TV.
That's your final table for tonight folks. Just a heads up, tomorrow will be an off day for the World Series of Twitter.
We will be back Monday with more tweets and zaniness from the 2011 World Series of Poker.
