Most of the poker world is in Los Angeles for the World Poker Tour L.A. Poker Classic (LAPC) right now. And even though Southern California is known for its fantastic sunny weather and amazing beaches, that is of no concern to poker players. They are indoor cats, preferring to be shielded by air conditioning and fake oxygen pumped through casino air vents.
Another major tournament series means another occasion for players to flock to Twitter to provide chip stack updates (ugh), moral support for their friends making final table runs (blech) and general, entertaining debauchery and degeneracy (now we're getting somewhere).
And if poker doesn't already have enough petty issues that nobody can agree on, the "shot clock" debate is sure to be one that will last a lifetime (or at least until Matt Glantz writes a blog post about it).
Anyway, that's where we kick things off in this week's top tweets.
