Poker Central brings you a plethora of very serious poker content on a daily basis, ranging from your Contender Countdown for the U.S. Poker Open to the exciting lineup announcements for Poker After Dark and Dolly’s Game. Five of a Kind, however, is not too be taken too seriously, as we take a light-hearted look at all that’s been good, bad, funny, and weird on #PokerTwitter!
Andrew’s Alien Encounter
High stakes pro, yoga enthusiast and apparent extraterrestrial explorer Andrew ‘LuckyChewy’ Lichtenberger had the following encounter to share. What more is there to add then, “We want to hear more!”
Confirmed, I have once seen an alien. Our interaction was short and I can't say I caught a name or anything but there was an unforgettable encounter.

His mustache was heavily featured on Dolly’s Game this week and it’s worthy of more praise as Mike Gorodinsky rocked the 70s stache with lots of pride. In addition to the mustache banter, Gorodinsky clashed with his friend and rival Doyle Brunson, and we caught up with him to talk about this ongoing Twitter feud.
Had originally planned to rock the street sweeper for just one day of Dolly’s Game but couldn’t get in with a barber this morning, so y’all are stuck with the pornstache for another day 🤷♂️

Vegan For a Year
Wait, what? Jamie Kerstetter just agreed to be vegan for a year for $10,000, or $27 per day, and if she fails she’ll volunteer for 100 hours! I’m having a hard time seeing the value in this bet, as a dramatic lifestyle change of this nature is not something to take lightly! I wish Jamie all the best from the comfort of remote location where they serve organic free range grass fed steak with fries fried in duck fat. I’m sorry, but I couldn’t see myself ever committing to this.
I’ve gotten myself into a vegan prop bet 🌱

Poker’s favorite high stakes Twitter darling had a rough week! She booked an Airbnb in Auckland, New Zealand without air conditioning and the early-morning spin classes weren’t kind on her either especially after a night of drinking. If only men were nicer, taking her working routine into consideration!
Hangover is always the worst, why men always too nice to buy me free drink? Woke up so early and ready for spin class, the word “give up “is not on kitty’s book, not going to be a lazy girl, today 5k 6max is my last event, wish me luck 🙂 pic.twitter.com/zyZ7rlQgQ8

Bob Bites Back
In-between trading half the Dallas Mavericks roster, Haralabos Voulgaris had time to chime into Daniel Negreanu’s ongoing Twitter quests. Bob suggested Daniel might be better off toning it down a bit, but what fun would that be? Either way, it’s great having Bob keep an eye on the poker world while making great strides in his new role as wizard for the Mavs.
You could also just try not saying anything. You can have thoughts and opinions without the need to share them with the world. That’s a pretty valuable lesson too.
