As the Stars Tweet: WCOOP and theme parks

teampro-thumb.JPGWe're well into the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker schedule and the members of Team PokerStars Pro are working hard on the virtual felts.

Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier had a "so sick" had he tweeted about and you can check it out on the BOOM Player.

"#sosick hand on @PokerStars ! 3bet bluff river turned in value #BOOMPlayer "

Daniel Negreanu booked his first cash last week, "Ladies and gentlemen can I have your attention please. I, KidPoker, have just cashed in WCOOP18 for my first cash of the series. @PokerStars" and then a day later, notched his second cash, "Ladies and Gentleman, just register my 2nd cash in #WCOOP21 and still in all three events today. Time for some run good."

Negreanu has also been listening in on WCOOP Radio. "I must be getting delirious. Everything on WCOOP radio is making me laugh. Brick a do brick a dow!!! @stapes" Are you guys getting your daily dose of WCOOP radio?

Other pros have decided to bond together. Jason Mercier, Liv Boeree, Vanessa Selbst, and Jonathan Duhamel all grabbed lunch together while in London.

"Had a pretty awesome sushi lunch in London today with @eholla4 @VanessaSelbst @Liv_Boeree @jonathanduhamel @jonathanroy70 #TNJ"

Maybe it wasn't in Mercier's best interests though, because he got locked in a phone booth. "We shut @JasonMercier in a phonebox today:," tweeted Liv Boeree.


They ladies were definitely picking on Mercier during their time together, as evidenced by Jason Mercier's tweet, "It's kind of fun to play like a nit! It's very energizing... Now I see why u do it!" -----@VanessaSelbst playing online poker next to me."

But Mercier got his revenge. "Playing @VanessaSelbst in battleship heads up badugi sit and gos. So far I'm 4-0 and shes tilted rly bad. I have to show my hand every hand"
Not everyone is hitting the online felts for fun and games. Andre Akkari is gallivanting around Sea World and Disney World. We can't understand his tweets, but the photos are making us jealous.

"Matando uma cerveja de mantega no Harry Potter!"


"Sea World!!! Sente o clima desta tal de Manta!!!"


And if all the WCOOP tweets you've been reading are also making you jealous and kind of down, Negreanu offers up his condolences.

"My sincere condolences to all those that are unable to play online poker. It's simply SO much more enjoyable than live poker. Not even close"
