2016 WSOP Main Event Tweets: Ivey Back in Action, Tanking

Here are a selection of some of the top tweets coming from the 2016 WSOP currently underway in Las Vegas:
Phil Hellmuth
“The @WSOP just didn’t feel like the WSOP w/out @PhilIvey. Nice to have him back in the house: welcome home Phil!”
Allen Kessler
“Outrageous hadn’t opened in hours. Finally get aces utg. Tilted player with only 10k calls with 68. Of course the flop is 79T. On fumes.”
Daniel Negreanu 
“Solid commentary from @MagicAntonio on #PNPod discussing young pros tanking and staring and destroying the game of poker.. At 9 handed table if all took 15 seconds to act preflop it would take 2:15 just to see flop. Would be impossible to play 20 hands per hour.”
Andy Frankenberger
“I invented a couple new terms today — folding your btn is a balk. Folding your cutoff is a Calk. @NormanChad feel free to use.”
Dan Smith 
“It’s amazing how much more fun playing poker for life changing money is when you don’t have someone endlessly berating the table.”
Erik Seidel
“Never thought I’d see another streak to match Dan Colman ‘2014 but @CrownUpGuy has probably surpassed it. Congrats also to @DanSmithHolla”
Isaac Haxton
“Conspiracy theory: the company that provides massages bribes the WSOP to make us sit in the world’s most uncomfortable chairs.”
JP Kelly
“Busted last 20 mins of day 77 v TT . Got some kind of eye infection too so will be awake til 9am. Could not be over Vegas anymore right now!”
Daniel Cates
“bobbys room is cold as hell atm. Luckily, for reasons unknown to anyone, a sweater with biggie on it was available.”
John Juanda
“Trying to sign up for $111,111 One Drop and it’s more challenging than I thought! Hope to get in b4 dinner break!:)”
Mike McDonald
“My table is sharing stories from pre World War 2 and saying I look identical to Paul Newman. An ageist person might call this table soft.”
Tim Ward
“@MikeMcDonald89 gotta respect the Vets… even if they are flush chasers!”
Phil Galfond 
I always enjoy playing the #WSOPMainEvent. Had lots of really nice/cool people at all my tables and poker is fun!
Shaun Deeb 
“Bagged a shade under 200 had a really tough table all day 5 online grinders and some live guys who didn’t suck here’s to better draws”
