Tweet Relief: Deeb Dominance, WSOP Exodus
The PokerListings Tweet Relief is the lottery-winning ticket in a lifetime of bad-decision Tweets.
Every week we dredge through hundreds of inane Tweets in the poker world to give you a glimpse of the best the Twitterverse has to offer on poker.
This week people were buzzing about Shaun Deeb and his amazing run in PokerStars' SCOOP this year as well as the start of a mass migration to Las Vegas for the 2012 WSOP.
Deeb changed the game this week by winning his fourth SCOOP title (third in the 2012 SCOOP) and leaping past Viktor “Isildur1” Blom on the SCOOP leaderboard with 645 points.
Unless something catastrophic happens he’s a lock to win POY at the 2012 SCOOP.
This week we’ve highlighted observations from Vanessa Selbst, Randal Flowers, Jeff Madsen, Daniel Negreanu and JP Kelly. Check them out below:

SCOOP is grueling, great structures result in me playing 12 hour days almost every day.No big scores yet, 3 more days to bink one off.— David Doc Sands (@Doc_Sands) May 15, 2012

I hear the Gold Coast calling. The pai gow tables and the bowling alley bar. There's nothing that can be done to stop it. #wsop— mattshowell (@mattshowell) May 10, 2012
