Hit and Run: Poker Twitter Explodes; Doug Polk Wins 1st Scoop Title; Is Caesars Selling the WSOP?

Steve Ruddock : May 22nd, 2016


Poker Twitter is on fire this weekend. Caesars bankruptcy could lead to WSOP sale. Doug Polk picks up his first PokerStars Scoop title. And more.

Poker Twitter is the best Twitter

If you need to kill a couple hours I highly recommend you start by reading the two Twitter debates/arguments/trollings I’ve listed below.

The first is Jason Mercier and Doug Polk deciding which person whose made millions playing poker is better at the game, and how they can go about betting outrageous sums of money on proving it. The second is Daniel Negreanu espousing the view that it’s easier to beat poker than it was in the 1990’s.

And for the lulz, there is always the salty WSOP Twitter account.

Quick Hitters

- Speaking of Doug Polk, the high stakes cash game legend just picked up his first PokerStars SCOOP title this week.

- PocketFives.com’s Dan Cypra takes a look at the growth the European Poker Tour has seen under the stewardship of Edgar Stuchley.

- Rumors of Caesars (in the throes of bankruptcy) spinning off its interactive division, which includes the World Series of Poker, has some wondering if the 2016 WSOP will be the last one held by Caesars, and in whose hands the brand could potentially end up.

- TI (Treasure Island) has apparently launched a subscription based online poker site. However, it appears the site is only open to players from 25 states at the moment.
