2011 World Series of Twitter Day 22 - New Smart Phone Apps, Rounders, and 2011 WSOP Confusion
Day 22 of the 2011 World Series of Twitter saw 2+2 Legends, new smart phone apps, and people trying to figure out what day it is at the 2011 WSOP.
Kevin Mathers aka Kevmath made the final table today in the 9 seat.Â He finally got some mainstream recognition for his efforts on 2+2 Forums...well...sorta:
Kevmath Brag: Im in @WPTPokerMag w/ @tattytats on cover as a "2+2 legend". Beat: They spelled my name wrong. Variance: Kessler also named a legend.
It could be worse.Â The last magazine that agreed to hire me to write for them folded within two weeks.Â (Wishing that one was made up....)
Adam Goulding is in Seat 8 and has learned that much of life can be learned by hanging around poker players:
snoopy1239 Hanging around poker players is educational. Learned what spooning was en route to the Rio; not as mucky as I thought.
The last poker player I talked to tried to teach me how to properly clean a bong.Â And no, I do not mean @BigBenClock either.
Sara Underwood is in Seat 7 and needs a nap:
SaraUnderwood I'm so tired that I clicked the lock button on my car keys 3 times to try & turn the TV off, till I realized I needed the remote to do that.
I once thought my TV remote was a cell phone.Â I got quite a shock when I thought I hit send and the CNN news started blaring at me over the TV.
Gavin Griffin is in Seat 6 and I think has lost track of time in Vegas:
NHGG Welcome back to the WSOP, 2500 NL today, event number something
It's event....thirty something.Â Hell, I'm in Virginia and have lost track too.Â I just had to put my mouse over the time to see that it was Tuesday.
In Seat 5, Jeff aka Hooch474 tells us about a new smart phone app:
Hooch474 Egads..old guy scoots past me using his smart phone..smelled like he was working a mobile craps app.
The all new i-crap.Â Poop different.
Michele Lewis, Jon Friedberg, and myself are all sharing Seat 4 today.Â (Yes, it s a bit crowded.)Â Jon told me that he didn't get the movie Ronders.Â Michelle summed it up for him nicely:
MicheleLewis @JonFriedberg @compncards it's about managing your bankroll by eating regular Oreos instead of double stuffed.
Using a smaller portion of your bankroll to play games is a solid bankroll management skill.Â It also helps keep the pounds off.
Asian Spa is in Seat 3 and tries to tell Matt Savage an important fact:
AsianSpa @SavagePoker FYI, no one remembers 2nd place
Unless they are Sammy Farha.Â Or David Williams.Â Or Erik Seidel for all you Rounders fans.
PokerGod is in Seat 2 and would like to share a cold one:
pokergob don't worry everybody in the USA, you'll have time later to join me for a Red Stripe!
Ya man!Â Beer! Great beer!
Colin Cooley is in Seat 1 and is about to embark on a smoothie quest:
runwicked First morning into 3 days of living off green smoothies only & all I can think about are the iced mochas I'm not going to drink today.
Of course, I couldn't resist, so I replied to him:
compncards @runwicked After 3 days of living off smoothies, Id be saying "Where's the Beef!"
Not skipping a beat, he said:
@compncards I'll be saying "where are the tacos"
Yo quiero Taco Bell or el Taco Bell Chihuahua, whichever cooks up tasty first.
No animals were harmed in the making of this report.Â They were too fast for me to catch and I didn't have any bacon.
Come back tomorrow when we find out why this bird is still dive bombing the fox in my back yard.
