Tweet Relief: Amarillo Slim, Monte Carlo Dominate
The PokerListings Tweet Relief is a gold mine in a barren mountain full of dull Tweets.
Twitter is getting pretty hard to ignore but fortunately for readers who don’t feel like wading through thousands of poker Tweets every week we’ve compiled a list of our favorite posts from the last week.
This week the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo and Amarillo Slim passing away dominated the poker Twittersphere. Despite his controversial status in the poker world, the community at large seemed sad to see Slim pass.
Meanwhile Monte Carlo had several interesting storylines with a woman nearly winning the main event and Daniel Negreanu coming in second in the $25k high roller but it was the exorbitant prices of the area that seemed to strike a chord in the social media community.
We’ve got insightful observations from Doyle Brunson, Scott Huff, Erik Seidel, Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier and more. Interestingly we also feature the first Phil Ivey Tweet in over a year.
Check them all out below:
