This week, the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event swallowed up social media. So naturally, PokerNews decided to make the most of it. Here are the behind-the-scenes heroes of the WSOP, those who kept us up into the wee hours of night watching through to the final hand.
*Because you have to start from the beginning*

Party fouls and even deeper frowns.

We all had high hopes for Vayo.
Finally Vayo taking a stand #wsop https://t.co/wHEEFiZSUy— Darius Studdard (@IDontLookLikeTO)
But maybe this was closer to reality:
Rooting for Gordon, but # RT @casekeefer: Here's Gordon Vayo, down to 54 million chips. https://t.co/b80qOXdLlf— Tyler Patterson (@TylerPoker)
And maybe he did too.
This is what Vayo looks like every time Qui shoves on the river. #poker #wsop https://t.co/YCuFx9en1T— MicrostakesHero (@MicrostakesHero)
Vayo doubled up with a runner-runner flush and this is what he gets.

Some even get entrepreneurial.
Some had an entirely different focus from the get-go.
