Did you choose the over or under on three weeks for when poker players start to complain about the little things in (poker) life? If you chose the under, then congratulations! It really did only take 20 days. Now tuck those elbows in and enjoy our round-up of what the great and good are discussing at the WSOP felt… and away from it.
NEGREANU WANTS HIS SPACE
Any Tweet that starts with irrationally and angry in the same sentence is clearly going to be good. Check out the replies for who fesses up to this heinous crime.
It makes me irrationally angry when playing 6 or 8 handed when the guy in the 1 or 6, or 1 or 8 seat sit at an angle and infringe on space instead of straight in the spot they are supposed to sit.

SUPER SENIORS DON’T NEED A SHOT CLOCK
There’s a very good reason that the Super Seniors don’t need a shot clock, and will never be caught tanking. Over to WSOP legend Mike Sexton.
While playing the Super Seniors @wsop one guy said, “It’s so nice to play a tournament where no one tanks.” Another guy then said, “We’re not gonna live that much longer. We can’t waste our time tanking!” #superseniors #wsop

CAUGHT IN A TRAP
Ever wondered what to do in early position when the under the gun player limps? Hot from the WSOP felt comes the answer.
If a player limps utg: the correct play is to squint suspiciously and then move your arm *as slowly as possible* to limp behind, signaling to the other players that you are savvy enough to know this might be a trap.

CAMPBELL IS STATING DECLARATIONS
When you’re in elite sports, you know that the route to a WSOP bracelet starts with a single cash. Can Calais Campbell run all the way to grab gold this year?
Made my first WSOP cash! Only my 10th event or so. Getting better. One day I will get a bracelet
