An interesting Twitter Collaboration goes live by Poker's hottest celebs

Twitter has to be one of the most used and most useful social media platforms on the web and is a great way to get your message across to millions of Twitter users worldwide. Of course, not all ‘tweets’ are political or personal, and some of them are there to let you know something crazy or big is happening somewhere in the world.

This was precisely the case when an exciting and potentially very lucrative collaboration exploded all over Twitter just a few days ago. PokerGo (@OneDrop), one of the biggest and hottest online poker live streaming services on the web, together with pokercentral.com (@PokerCentral), are bringing live coverage of the current World Series of Poker (@WSOP ) Main Event which is being streamed simultaneously on ESPN and PokerGO.

The main event that poker fans from around the world are looking forward to the most has to be the incredible World Series of Poker Big One for One Drop final table live event. This ultimate world poker showdown is taking place tonight with six of the words very best poker players vying for the crown of world poker champion, along with one of the biggest championship prizes in poker.

With six of the best world poker heavy hitters and a buy-in of $1,000,000, expect to see some of the best Poker games ever streamed. Depending on where you happen to be in the world, you can catch the live stream either on PokerGo or via ESPN 2 and watch the likes of Justin Bonomo and Dan Smith take their seat at the table of contention. Other poker superstars making up the final six including Fedor Holz, Byron Kaverman, as well as outsiders like the always cool and calm David Einhorn and the often controversial Rick Salomon.

Super High Roller Bowl winner Justin Bonomo is the favourite and is pegged to walk away with the top end $10 million in prizes. However, it won’t be an easy battle for the cash as all six contenders are known for putting up a good fight. As some have reminded everyone on Twitter, both of the non – professional players, namely Salomon and Einhorn are no strangers to the Big One, and both have cashed in at previous events. In fact, Salomon has added not one, but two $1,000,000 buy-in’s on his sheet to date.

Here’s a quick look at the chip counts for the One Drop Final table:
