Wow, it's been a while since I've written a Poker Player Tweets of the Week column! My last piece came on Dec. 13, or a whopping six weeks ago.
Where have I been? Or a better question: Does anyone care? I'll preserve the multitude of excuses I could make for not having written one of these since before Christmas and just come up with one, all-encompassing reason.
I've been busy.
Well, sort of. First, I went on vacation to the tropical paradise that is the American Midwest in December. That was followed up with a series of snow storms here in Boston, which kept me knee-deep (literally) in snow shoveling. And January is also a bustling time here at Casino City.
But forget my lame excuses; I'm back and ready to entertain! Well, actually, it's not me who's doing the entertaining. Poker players have been up to their usual shenanigans and firing up the Twittersphere with their amusing repartee. I'm just here to curate it.

If I was a great man like Frank Lloyd Wright or Jackie Robinson and my estate pimped me out to sell Mazdas I’d be rolling over in my grave.— Haralabos Voulgaris (@haralabob) January 24, 2014
Rewatched one of the best comedies of all time last night. The 2006 main event final table. Masterful on many levels. #GodBlessYouTube— matt salsberg (@msalsberg) January 22, 2014
I like to people watch. Quick way to getting put in the friend zone --- excessive high-fiving. #friendzonesodeep— Kristy Arnett (@KristyArnett) January 22, 2014
My word for 2014 is CONNECTION. Deeper, more meaningful relationships with people. If you had to pick a word, what would it be and why?— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) January 21, 2014
