As the Stars Tweet: Throwback tweets and WCOOP

teampro-thumb.JPGYou probably already know that most of this piece is going to be dripping with tweets about the World Championship of Online Poker, but the members of Team PokerStars Pro have had a little bit of free time to tweet about other things - a little bit.

First up are the throwback tweets. Liv Boeree and Daniel Negreanu got on the throwback bandwagon, Boeree showing us she didn't always have long, flowing locks and Negreanu showing us that well, he's always been a jokester.

Boeree: "Going through some old family photos and found this little gem... Yes, that was my haircut."

Negreanu: "Proof that I've been photo bombing since junior high!"



Another Pro did some reflecting of his own, just not as far back.

Jason Mercier: "I am very fortunate to be where I am today in poker.... This I know. However, this year has been unbearable. Almost any pro poker player...Would be completely broke if they ran like I have run this year."

But Mercier is on the road playing tournaments and trying to make the best of it.

"Gotta make do sometimes when u on the road ... Cereal+bananas in a coffee pot :)"


Speaking of the road, Daniel Negreanu made us jealous with his "go-to, road" designer kicks - not so much the kicks as the designer part though.

"The Fab 5 road collection: Prada Deiselx2 Creative Rec and Christian Louboutin my go to road kicks"


And Liv Boeree reminded us that there is such a thing as too much pink, even if it's fit for a princess.

"In Cannes for Partouche tomorrow! My hotel room is pink. Very pink. And lime green. With some more shades of pink."


And of course, the WCOOP tweets.

Negreanu: "On my way to Toronto today to get settled in for the #wcoop grind. I plan on taking zero days off and going for the Player of the Series."

But it's not all work and no play for Negreanu, "If anyone else is grinding in Toronto for #wcoop hit me up if you do anything fun. I'll be in the heart of downtown for the duration."

But it's mostly work: "Since its #WCOOP time I don't plan on leaving my room for 3 weeks and the over/under on showers + getting dressed is 5.5 days out of 21."

We're taking the over because we like good hygiene.

Boeree: "Gym, sauna, massage, WCOOP. Yum yum."

Lex Veldhuis: "Went to bed at 11. Woke up at 7:30 am. Ridiculously normal schedule. Laptop being fixed now hope I don't miss too much of 6max #WCOOP2012."

Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier is ready: "My grinding setup for incoming #WCOOP2012 on @PokerStars . Time to make history once again !!!"
