“If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.” – Jim Valvano

Hitting all those emotions through a given week might be difficult but the Twitterverse makes it a little bit easier. From the thought provoking, to the humorous, to the hilarious, ‘Poker Twitter’ had it all this week.

The rebranding of the PokerStars live event schedule has been making headlines since late last year but name aside, Joe Stapleton returned to make everything right again. The PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event live stream has been chugging along for a few days and ‘Stapes’, along with partner James Hartigan, is back doing what he does best.

Jennifer Tilly is usually bubbly and upbeat on social media but earlier this week she went a few shades darker when talking about poker player’s tournament lives. She wasn’t wrong though; poker tournaments are like life. Sometimes they aren’t fair, sometimes they drive you crazy, sometimes they – maybe Jennifer Tilly is onto something here…

Richard Seymour has been making waves on the poker circuit for the last few years, with his best career finish coming in December’s year ending WPT Five Diamond Poker Classic at the Bellagio. Seymour looks like he’s finally been convinced to give the fans what they want, a way to follow their favorite poker playing defensive lineman on Twitter. Seymour’s friend Jared Jaffee welcomed the three-time Super Bowl champion and wished him luck before Day 3 of the PCB Main Event.

Let the record state that we could probably do bi-weekly social media recaps that only involve Jamie Kerstetter tweets. For the sake of involving others though, we’ll limit her to one appearance this week. At the end of the year, Daniel “Jungleman” Cates went on a bit of a rampage, talking about other player’s “online set ups”. He then tweeted a picture of his own set up, which looked to be in a laundry room, or the set of SAW.

You thought you’d get through this without seeing some shameless self-promotion? Almost but not this week. Poker Central just launched a brand new website and in a few days, Senior Editor Remko Rinkema will launch two brand new podcasts. ‘The Poker Central Podcast’ and ‘Heads Up with Remko’ will feature interviews and conversations with the world’s biggest names. Be on the lookout for the official launch of both podcasts.
