Best Tweets from 2016 WSOP ME Final Table

The 2016 WSOP Main Event took a sabbatical in July, after the starting field of 6,737 players was reduced to just nine hopefuls. The November Nine subsequently returned to the Rio in Las Vegas last night, and by the end of the day just five players remained. This group is led by Qui Nguyen (129bb), followed by Cliff Josephy (64bb), Vojtech Ružicka (62bb), Gordon Vayo (58bb), and Michael Ruane (24bb).
Falling by the wayside, however, were the following players; Fernando Pons in 9th ($1m); Jerry Wong in 8th ($1,100,076); Griffin Benger in 7th ($1,250,190); and Kenny Hallaert in 6th ($1,464,258).
In the meantime, the action was watched by poker fans everywhere, and here are some of the best comments posted by the pros via their twitter accounts:
2016 WSOP Final Table
Alec Torelli
“Ruzicka is easily playing the best #poker at the @WSOP – he’s clear favorite to win in my opinion. #WSOP #WSOP2016”
Brian Hastings 
“Ruane playing the best so far. @HumLun handcuffed by stack. Ruzicka has done some good but JJ checkback was ugly. Most others scared.. Has Benger played a hand since he had 18m?”
Justin Bonomo
“I’m rooting for @JohnnyBaxPoker tonight! I’ve known him for 12 years. He’s always been a great guy and has withstood poker’s test of time.”
Daniel Negreanu
“Want to take a moment to commend ALL the @WSOP final tables for playing at an acceptable pace. Helps the broadcast immensely”
Jaime Staples
“I think @RealKidPoker and @phil_hellmuth are the best for this commentary. They are speaking to the masses not to the online reg #whitemagic”
Allen Kessler
“Amazing that wsop ft player sponsors have 3 months to produce clear, readable patches for this final table, and some are impossible to read.”
Christian Harder
“@GregMerson called this the year of the check, in February #confirmed #2016poker”
Ondra Machálek
“If the Czech rail at the wsop ft doesnt have a ton of “Czech your privilege” t-shirts I will be very dissapointed.”
Bertrand Grospellier
+Happy #Halloween everyone!! Got so little sleep last few days that I don’t even need makeup to look like a #zombie #pgw again today”
Jimmy Fricke 
Vanessa Selbst
“Hers and hers costumes for Halloween, courtesy of @mm_selbst!”
Sam Trickett
“Fair play to people who go to the gym and diet in this weather. Bloody freeeezing! Tea & biscuits sounds a way better option… Heavy weekend! Time for a detox”
