WSOP Tweet Relief: Let the Clogging Begin!
Think the pros are excited about the start of the 2012 WSOP?
Anyone with a Twitter feed that includes someone even remotely related to poker found out in full force that today is the first open event. Several times, probably.
If you're into poker, today is like Christmas morning. If you're not into poker ... well, it's going to be a long, clogged summer.
We've pared through the barrage of first-day tweets to find the best and most insightful.
These are a few of them:
