    Jack Effel has quit Twitter

    Some of you might remember this Twitter debacle from 2015.

    In that situation, Matt Glantz was blocked by WSOP Tournament Director Jack Effel, simply for offering constructive criticism of the WSOP.

    Because Glantz is fairly high profile, this got a lot of attention, and tons of others came out with their own stories of Effel blocking them for flimsy/minor reasons. Indeed, at the time both myself and Brandon were blocked from the @WSOPTD Twitter account.

    Two days later, Jack unblocked Matt and agreed to unblock anyone else he had blocked in the past. I was unblocked shortly after that, which I requested from a different account so he would see it.

    However, check out the @WSOPTD account, and you'll see it hasn't tweeted since December 2017. In fact, it has only tweeted ONCE since July 22, 2017.

    Why?

    I got my answer on June 3 of this year.

    "I've quit Twitter," said Jack to one of the players at the $10k O8 event. "My life is so much less stressful. I just got off of it. It's been a great thing for me."

    So you can no longer tweet to the WSOP tournament director, because he has left Twitter.

    Good to know that his life isn't too busy or too serious for him and his wife to feel like they need to stop mercilessly posting upgrades to their Summerlin McMansion or their weekend jaunts to Paris - all over Facebook.

    Nobody should be bragging about living in Las Vegas. He is only 42? Looks like he is 50+.

    this guy is such a fucking moron...how the fuck does he still have a job?

    watching the one drop and after holz doubles up shoving QTo on the button, the very last hand before break he gets the button again without anybody noticing...

    this happened in the main event too, but cynn caught it before any action took place...

    that fucking moron effel was standing right fucking there and is supposed to be refereeing these things when the huge money is on the line and he fucking screws the pooch not once, but fucking TWICE!! if you are that fucking incompetent and can't do your job at the most crucial of times, maybe you should step down from your position...
