Must Follow Poker Twitter and Instagram Accounts for WSOP

Poker twitter

Ok, let's be honest. The World Series of Poker is probably one of the greatest times of the year. Thank goodness for Twitter because where would poker be without it — it'll still be going strong but just a lot less fun. Twitter: Where you go for drama. Instagram: Where you go to see the glam lifestyles of a pro poker player.

There's so much content to consume that we've put together a must-follow list of the people to add to your following to make the 2018 WSOP that much better. Follow this bunch and you'll feel like you're right in the action.

Don't forget Nick Schulman. He recently joined the Twitter world in February of this year so we'll be looking forward to seeing what he has to post during WSOP and some of the bigger mixed-game events.

One more to add is Maria Konnikova, who recently stopped progress on her book to pursue poker a little further. This should be her first full WSOP schedule and after one year and a few promising results, we're interested to see how she performs.

Poker Pro Twitter List

Honestly, this list could be never ending. Instead, keep an eye on the Twitter List we made. It'll be updated constantly as the series progresses.

Poker Pro Instagram Accounts

In the meantime, here are some noteworthy Instagram accounts to follow. Patrik and Gus may be playing few to none WSOP events, but hopefully they will at least be in Vegas for the cash games.
