WCOOP 2012: Tweet Minus 5-4-3-2-1
The 2012 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker is now officially underway and it couldn't come too soon for poker pros around the world.
Twenty-two days. 65 tournaments. $30 million guaranteed but probably more on the table.
It's the next best thing to the World Series of Poker, really.
As expected the anticipation was palpable on Twitter in the hours leading up to today's kickoff event, $215 No-Limit Hold'em Six-Max.
By the sounds of it it's going to be a lonely, showerless and prayer-filled three weeks -- and poker players couldn't be happier.
Here's how the countdown to bink o'clock looked over Twitter:
