We’re just past the halfway point of the 2011 WSOP and we’ve already had some exceptionally memorable moments with huge fields, Jason Mercier and John Juanda bracelets and the complete absence of Phil Ivey.
As always the players have been providing some great commentary on the various happenings at the WSOP and we thought we’d catch you up with five of the best Tweets we’ve seen regarding this summer’s WSOP.
Grab some popcorn and prepare to be entertained!
It would be an understatement to say Phil Ivey’s statement regarding Full Tilt caused some controversy.
Mike Matusow, who prior to Black Friday was Ivey’s Full Tilt teammate, was one of the most vocal players on Ivey’s decision.

just read this ivey lawsuit what a big bunch of bullshit from a person that cares only about himself not any players!
Fan-favorite Daniel Negreanu is always known for his calm, bubbly personality at the poker table but after a particularly rough start to the WSOP, something snapped in the Canadian.
Negreanu took a pair of Dr. Dre Beats headphones and destroyed them after taking a bad beat. First riots in Vancouver and now an angry Negreanu? Maybe Canadians aren’t all that peaceful.
@RealKidPoker Daniel Negreanu
just broke my headphones for real. He beat me two more hands in a row. Last one we both made flushes on river. Down to 27k
Andrew Robl has had an issue with Tony G ever since the Lithuanian called the clock twice on Robl in the PokerStars Big Game cash game.
Tony G has been strangely absent from the 2011 WSOP and Robl decided to chirp at the PartyPoker Pro.

Haven't sene you in any cash games/tournaments at the WSOP @TonyGuoga. But you certainly win the loudest railbird award. Congrats buddy.
The trash-talking Allen Bari quieted a number of his critics when he finally broke through this summer and won his first WSOP bracelet.
One such critic was the person behind the @fakeallenbari Twitter account, who has been mocking Bari’s talkative style for months.

We’re not sure if Doyle Brunson had a problem with the auto-correct on his phone or just forget Tom Dwan’s nickname but “Dirt” is a great fill in for “durrrr.”
@TexDolly Doyle Brunson
Dirt is leading horse people are frantic
