Some bracelet celebrations last until that player registers into the next WSOP event, which can often be almost instantly at the World Series of Poker. Other parties go on all night, and with Luke Schwartz winning his first bracelet, the latter was being touted as the friendly Londoner celebrated in the Rio, and on Poker Twitter. It was a busy day on social media, with some big names putting it all out there.
FULL FLUSH GETS THE GOLD

…but also paid tribute to his compatriot Stephen Chidwick, who also won his first-ever WSOP bracelet. So too did Rick Trigg, who couldn’t wait to pat Chidwick on the back.
Amazing picture wd to probably the best online/live tourney player ever? pic.twitter.com/5cWphqB93H

Dan Smith was just as affectionate about his friend and fellow poker player.
Sure, this guy might have a loving wife, a beautiful healthy baby and now an extra $1.6 million in his pocket… but jokes on him! He’s no longer the best player without a bracelet 🤠 pic.twitter.com/zKzKFVYhMq

BREAKING TABLES AND FORMING A DISORDERLY LINE
Victor Figueroa thinks he’s hit on a way the World Series could organize things a little better when it comes to their poker chips.
WSOP: We’re breaking your table. Put your chips in this bag, do not hide or conceal chips, if you put them in your pocket you’ll be DQ’d. Follow me to your new table.
WSOP Late Reg: Here’s a 25k chip and some 5k’s for you to palm & walk by yourself to a table 100 yards away. 🕵🏻♂️

CHAD BETTING BIG
Norman Chad can’t be accused of playing poker like a TV commentator, even if he is one of the best in the business. Recent 2019 WSOP bracelet winner Eli Elezra highlights the poker TV legend’s ‘go big or go home’ mentality.
