Poker Tweets: Best Comebacks!

Poker Tweets: Best Comebacks!For this week’s poker tweets, we have compiled a short list of some of the best messages posted over the past few days by your favorite pros, and an accompanying best response picked out from one of their many responders.
The inspiration for doing so came courtesy of none other than the 14-times WSOP winner Phil Hellmuth, who recently posted a photo of Mike Wattel, Antonio Esfandiari and himself playing a friendly game of poker at the Bellagio, and the following challenge:
“Caption contest: $20 to the answer that makes me laugh the most! @MagicAntonio and I chatting (Mike in the middle) today in Bellagio @WPT #POSITIVITY”
While there were many excellent responses to choose from, the winner, in my opinion, goes to the ever scathing Shaun Deeb, who suggested:
“Why am I not playing cash with this two clowns” mike wattel
Someone else who was also playing at the Bellagio, in this case at a high stakes game in Bobby’s Room, was Daniel Negreanu who was enjoying himself so much that he had to share the following tweet:
“I forgot how fun it was to sit in Bobby’s Room with the gang playing $1500-$3000 mixed. The stories are top notch and everything is even funnier when you win every pot.”
The tweet made a nice change from Negreanu’s politically leaning messages he has become renowned for on twitter, and as one of his followers responded:
“I forgot how fun it was to read something from you about poker and NOT politics”
Mind you, this one from Doug Polk‏ was pretty good, too:
“It’s more fun making news video in crypto becuase there is actually news. Poker news is basically just checking for what outrageous things @RealKidPoker tweeted recently and then seeing if Stars raised rake again.”
In the meantime, here are a couple more tweets and their rather amusing retorts to enjoy:
“Professional Fart Smeller is a real job in China that pays around $50k a year.”
Doyle Brunson
“Sitting next to some of these poker players, I do it for nothing.#Asparagus”
and finally…
Jimmy Fricke
“Every time I get called “big guy” or “big man” I immediately want to call them by their least attractive quality too.
“Hey big man.”
“Hey acne dude.”
.. The worst is when they attach it to my name. “Big Jim.” I don’t call them “Asshole Steve.”
“Hey big man” or “Big man” is a term of endearment from a Scotsman to some1 who is relatively short in stature. But I totally agree if som1 prefixes with “Big” *based* on real stature and it’s not a nickname u have endorsed then it is offensive.”
