It’s a Super Sunday today, as we look back on some of the best tweets this week from the 2019 World Series of Poker. Find out who’s top of the WSOP Player of the Year race and who’s just having a blast in Las Vegas…and Peru.
BAKES MAKES A POINT
David ‘Bakes’ Baker knows how poker players think, and what they think of just before the end of the night. It’s just pure love.
Find someone who pays attention to you the way players pay attention to where the button ends at the end of the night

SILVER SWEAT IN THE MAIN?
Will Max Silver really put it all on the line in the first hand of the WSOP Main Event this year? Any bidding and we might find out.
What’s your price to jam 100% first hand of the wsop main event unopened?
You get to look at your cards so people don’t know you’re blind, your opponents don’t know about the bet.
I’d probably do it for $1500

JUNGLEMAN GONNA JUNGLE
Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates can’t help wind up his opponents. This week’s victim? WSOP Player of the Year Shaun Deeb.
This discussion just happened in the 50k

Jungle – ok i was just running the sims and that came up

MACHU PICCHU FOR POKER BRAT
If you’ve been wondering where the legend that is Phil Hellmuth has been the last little while, well, he took a mid-Series vacation. And why not?
W the Hollywood Legend @PeterGuber in Machu Picchu! Only slept 90 mins last night here in Peru, then hiked 8 hours over rugged mountain terrain w a great group of guys. So beautiful! So spiritual! #PHNiceLife #POSITIVITY pic.twitter.com/DWlhY2J5yD

DON’T BE THE WORST
What if you are the worst player at the poker table? Sometimes you’ve got to appeal to your opponents’ best instincts… or their senses of self-preservation.
The worst player at my table just said "you guys know you might wanna let me win a hand or two or you're likely to get a good player in this seat instead of me"

HUI HUNTING DOWN ZACK

Current Top Ten:
