2011 World Series of Twitter Day 40 - Vampires, Pocket Aces and Talking Shit
The World Series of Twitter took a bit of a hiatus but has made a return during Day 1c of the 2011 WSOP Main Event.
Today we get some advice about pocket aces, Forrest Griffin talks some shit, and we even throw in a little vampire talk.
Victoria Coren is in Seat 9 and gives some advice regarding pocket aces:
VictoriaCoren Note to self: if you'd planned a cigarette break, don't change your mind just because you find aces. That always costs at least 7k.
Of course, you could always give up smoking. Just sayin.
The UFC's Forrest Griffin is talking shit from Seat 8:
ForrestGriffin Seriously when you shit in public w/ your pants at your ankles there in the last guys piss. Hey it not as long as you think step forward
Adam Goulding is in Seat 7 and is clearly a Hellmuth fan:
snoopy1239 Went to watch the Hellmuth entrance and waited outside for him to arrive. I feel so dirty.
Don't feel bad. I am sure Asian Spa is there with you.Â :-)
From Seat 6, Chris Hall is checking out the fashion sense of players:
ChrisKPHall There is a guy on table 59 who looks like he stole a Jackson Pollack and wrapped himself in it.
At least he didn't wrap himself in Jeffrey Pollack. That would have just been wrong. And scary. His smile is still creepy.
Mental Floss joins the final table in Seat 5 and I think he has his facts mixed up:
mental_floss We almost forgot to wish you a Happy Odd Day! It's 7-9-11. Dates with consecutive odd numbers only occur six times each century
Just twice a century? Guys have dates with consecutive odds numbers every day. $573Â $1,315, etc, etc.
Sharri Verheyen is the queen of bad puns from Seat 4:
Sharri5670 What do you get if you cross a vampire and a circus entertainer? Something that goes straight for the juggler!
She should know better. You never play with your food.
Shane Schleger is in Seat 3 and reminds us that denial is the first step:
ShaneSchleger When a short stack requests a massage all I can think is "denial." #WSOP
This goes hand in hand with an all-in player requesting cocktails.
Kate Wrightson is in Seat 2, showing how fleeting poker fame can be:
katewrightson Guy on phone: "these people watching someone named Dennis play poker. Thought it might be Rodman but it was some guy in a trucker hat. WTF."
I have to agree. I would rather watch Dennis Rodman play poker over Dennis Phillips too.
Anon Poker Media is in Seat 1 and has a solution for the syndrome known as "Vegas attitude."

A: "Have something that would make me give a fuck about what's going on right now?" B: "I have uppers, downers, and a Bible."
So is the Bible supposed to inspire, motivate, or do you use it to knock the people in the head that annoy you?
Come back tomorrow when we break down the 23 flavors of Dr. Pepper.
