We here at Gambling911.com thought it would be fun to offer up odds on the first poker player to get in trouble for using Twitter at this year's World Series of Poker (WSOP). 

An interesting rule that truly stands out at this year's WSOP is the banning of Twitter usage, yet you'd never know it from reading some of the poker players Twitter pages.

Phil Hellmuth (1/2 odds): "Bad beet!! 8k pot, i limp w Q-Q under the gun, Bill Gazes Big Blind w J-9 off. Flop J-7-4, Bill check, i bet 700, he moved in, i call 9-A!"

Vanessa Rousso (4 to 1 odds): "Blowing off steam in the 1500 HORSE event, strted w 4500...I have 8200..."

Daniel Negreanu (1/7 odds) "Sitting on about 8400 above avg. Game is just way too easy they all miss bets etc Two more levels."

Doyle Brunson (10/1 odds) "One of the things I'm saying to my doctor during my colonoscopy.."God, now I know why I'm not gay!!"

David Williams (2/1 odds) "Playing the NL 2-7 10k tourney. Tough table but aren't they all. Still got my starting stack."

Annie Duke (3/1 odds) "Just got moved to a new table in Brasillia. My first table was tough with Jennifer Harman and Erick Lindgren. Hoping this one is easier."

Shannon Elizabeth:  "Playing Horse-THREE big pros directly to my left including Mike Matusow-oh boy-rough but fun table!"

Cyndy Violet (8/1 odds) "In the 2,500 hilow mix event - I am sitting next to Layne Flack and Marcele , so for sure I will b entertaiinrd!"

Field (even odds)

 

The use of Twitter has become a popular form of keeping fans in the loop on an interactive basis.  Several poker pros - most notably Doyle Brunson, Annie Duke, David Williams and Vanessa Rousso - utilize Twitter almost on a daily basis.

It was not immediately known as to why organizers would halt the use of Twitter at the tables.
