Tweet Relief: Poker's Big Three Blast WSOP Schedule

Negreanu: Not feeling 2013 schedule.

Phil Hellmuth made his reputation almost entirely from winning WSOP bracelets.

Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey have made it clear they're more focused than ever on winning bracelets these days.

So it was a surprise to see poker's "Big Three" take to Twitter yesterday to air some frustration with the 2013 WSOP schedule.

Negreanu got things rolling with a lament about the loss of some $10k Championships and game variations for the sake of multiple lower buy-in Hold'em events.

Ivey, Hellmuth and a variety of big-name pros quickly chimed in and took the WSOP to task for "focusing on numbers" and not "protecting WSOP history."

Fair dues? Check the tweets (and the WSOP's well-reasoned responses) below:
