Tweets of the Day
Kevin Mathers tweeted a picture of the vast hall filled with poker felts with the caption, “Needs more tables.”
Twitter also gave us our first look at one of the new chip sets in play at the WSOP. The new designs have an old-school simplicity to them, with chocolate-colored 100s and puce 500s.
Garry Gates tweeted a photo of a starting stack with the caption: “Credit where it’s due, the @WSOP Day 1 space is light years nicer than the old set up. It looks like they also have a brand new chip set in play!”
