Bad Beat Billy was drawing dead and finished in 12th place for a $896, 730 payday.

    What in the world does WSOP have to do with ANYTHING WebProNews writes about?

    Is this a joke?

      Sorry you are not interested. It is not something we usually cover, but I follow many poker players on Twitter and was monitoring the live Internet reporting of the event and thought I would make a post about it. WebProNews has covered poker twittering in the past when Phil Helmuth lost thousands of dollars while tweeting drunk and we will probably cover it very occasionally again — basically because it is an interest of mine and I am the Publisher of the site.
