With just a week of World Series of Poker action to go, players have let a little bit of their crazy out on the poker community, courtesy of the world wide web. We round up some of the best to hit social media in the last 24 hours.
KESSLER GETS SWAPPED IN THE MAIN
He may have run up a big stack, but that hasn’t stopped Allen ‘Chainsaw’ Kessler getting the face-swap treatment in the World Series of Poker Main Event.
Chainsaw just got moved to my table in the Main Event. If you guys want, we can see how he looks in all the Snapchat filters? Lmk. pic.twitter.com/v8dZIOghD3

MCDONALD GETTING THE EYES
Mike ‘Timex’ McDonald seems to have noticed an upswing in the attention he’s received since his ‘crossbooking’ of his chances in the Main Event.
Got more likes/follows on IG from seemingly real accounts of good looking girls than I've seen in quite some time. Did someone on ESPN mention that I'm rich?

ODB WILL BRB, HE’S GTG AGAIN
David ‘ODB’ Baker has bagged 466,000 in the Main Event, which is great….it’s just that he’s also bagged a big stack in the Little One for One Drop. Tomorrow could see him post some serious miles around the Rio.
466k in the bag for day 4 of the main and on the day off i bagged 187k in the one drop. Tomorrow should be a fun day……

WHAT A WAY TO BUBBLE
Bubble Boy Ryan Pochedly got an autographed WSOP commemorative board and a buy-in for next year’s $10,000 Main Event. Get that on a certain auction site Ryan and you’ve made more than the min-cash!
$80 AND A DREAM
This man won an $80 flip on the WSOP site to qualify for the Main Event. He started Day 1 clean-shaven, but he’s having the time of his life.

MAKING THE MONEY
This was a common way of qualifying for Day 4. It’s going to be an awfully busy first level when play resumes.
A guy at my table made the money with one big blind
