While a tweet or two may let fans into their favorite poker player’s heads, it’s usually just for a brief moment thanks to a 140-character limit. Instagram has no such boundaries though and this week brought some pictures across our timeline that were all worth more than a thousand words.
After mankind was subjected to weeks of torture at the hands of Carnegie Mellon’s poker playing computer, Libratus, Doug Polk had his own Heads Up Challenge on the other side of the country. This time, there were no computers involved and Polk played three heads up matches at the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles. Polk finished up on the session and gave away another decent percentage of action. Here’s to hoping I can re-tweet my way to 10% of his 2017 Super High Roller Bowl buy-in!
Earlier this month, Adam Schefter tweeted that Richard Seymour was on his shortlist for players that would be eligible for the NFL Hall of Fame in 2018. Earlier this week, Seymour went back to his University of Georgia roots to hang with his Dawgs. At the U of G, Seymour was a first team All-American and as a professional, he was a seven-time Pro Bowler and three-time Super Bowl champion. It might not happen right away but Seymour should get enshrined in Canton, Ohio when it is all said and done.
While Richard Seymour is likely poker’s expert on anything and everything football, Daniel Negreanu may be trying to be poker’s futbol expert. Negreanu regularly posts pictures on Twitter and Instagram of him on the pitch but last night, “Kid Poker” used lemons and limes, perhaps the Canadian version of X’s and O’s, to give his followers a tactical soccer lesson.
Could we really do an Instagram Insiders post without any Valentine’s Day love? The answer is no and thankfully, our very own Uncle Ron made his services available to the women of Kansas earlier this week. If you are ever feeling lonely and need a nice, young, caring, mustached man to take care of you, Cupid Ron is just a phone call away.
You and me both Fedor.
