What sort of World Series are you having? If it’s like any of the stars at the felt, then it’s been entertaining, win or lose! We caught up on the last 24 hours at the felt and away from it, as the great and good share their World Series of Poker with us via social media.
SEXTON SALUTES WARRIORS IN WSOP EVENT
As as a proud former member of the Airborne, Mike Sexton knows exactly what it’s like to take a leap into the unknown with only a parachute between him and the ground. He paid tribute to service men and women by playing the ‘Salute to Warriors’ WSOP event.
Playing in the ‘Salute to Warriors’ tourney @WSOP today. Gotta do it for the troops (& former troops). Thanks to all those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces! 👍 #airborne #wsop50 pic.twitter.com/32mOyAppKy

MISCOUNT? NO DICE
David Williams might think he’s found a spot where he has a decent edge on the field. Call it a hunch…
Damn I must have miscounted because he just shoved 35k at 500bb in the cutoff and said "I gotta get on a plane tonight so I wanna go shoot dice and drink whiskey so please call me". They all fold and he shows KTcc. Now the button claims they folded QQ 🤔

LEAH DOESN’T REGRET LEAVING RIO SCHEDULE OUT
There’s a great reason why Mike Leah doesn’t regret missing the World Series of Poker grind this year. Aww…
It certainly has been quite the adventure; much different to the @Wsop grind where I usually spend June. Wouldn’t have missed it for anything! 🥰

THAT REACTION SHOT
We’ve all been there, possibly even this World Series. We know someone who has, anyway.
When you reluctantly call river shove with top two and he says “ace high” then turns over the nut flush. pic.twitter.com/NZy2rJgZ0Y
