The Muck: A Call to Stop Slowrolling and the Final $25K Fantasy Ruling
The 50th annual World Series of Poker is nearing the halfway mark, and as always, there is no shortage of Twitter drama along the way. PokerNews continues to write about these nuggets from Twitter during week three of the WSOP for this week's Muck edition.
DNegs Calls for a Stop to Slowrolling

Final Ruling in the $25K Fantasy Draft Arbitration
Last week, the WSOP added a $50,000 Final Fifty High Roller to the schedule. Players involved in the $25,000 fantasy draft were debating on Twitter whether or not it should count for points. Some argued that it would have changed drafting strategy, but others pointed out that everyone was equally in the dark so it was all fair.
