WSOP Tweet Relief: Me Don't Swim Too Tough

The smaller buy-in tournaments at the WSOP ($1k, $1.5k) are lovingly called "donkaments" for a reason.

Fields are soft. Average poker players from all walks of life save their cash, or win a satellite, and go to Vegas to make their poker dreams come true.

You'll still run into a rash of pros if you get fairly deep, but for all intents and purposes they're the "everyman's shot" at the WSOP. And the play reflects it.

Some tournaments, however, aren't for the shallow-end swimmers. Today's $10k Pot Limit Hold'em Championship is one of those.

Our exclusive Bracelet Winners-only coverage has already eyeballed players with a total of 79 bracelets in the field. 79!

With just over 100 players registered, every table is a table of death. Check the tweet scene:
