The Twitter Twenty: #11 @RealKidPoker

Week Two of the TwitTwent and 5 more "friends" that I just can't do with out on Twitter.   If you are curious about why exactly I'm doing this feel free to check out any of the posts from last week, where I mumbled something about McRibs and such.   Which, by the way, are back now mysteriously AFTER I posted about them.  It's like they can hear you.  There is something very disconcerting with that imitation meat.

I had some friends ask (and by friends I mean voices in my head) if they didn't show up in the Twitter 20 if that means I would unfollow them.  The short answer, no.  The long answer, no way Jose.  It just means I may be less likely to see your Tweets with lightning fast immediacy.  I've got plenty of friends that I will still check in with and are doing a great job keeping me tweeterifically entertained.  But I just have to simplify my daily Twitter fix to where my phone actually gets to rest in my pocket for a few minutes every once in a while.

Here's today's entry:


This ones just for me.  I'm a bit of a (read "extreme") poker nerd, and absolutely fascinated by Daniel Negreanu.   Some of the plays he makes at the table are incredible and he is living proof that there is much more to this game than chance.  Off the felt he is just as interesting; broaching topics like his veganism, love of hockey, and his faith.  Yes, he would likely identify himself as a hockey loving, vegan Christian.  Which I suppose means he will check you into the boards if you mess with his Tofu and then pray that you heal up nicely.  He just made a huge run in a tournament in Vienna last week and it was great to be able to keep up with him via Twitter.  If you don't dig poker there really is no need to follow him.  But if you do, he's an interesting dude for sure.

Tweet of the Week: Walking back to my hotel now and just wanted any muggers to know that I don't carry any money on me at all. Just sayin'
