I don't dislike many poker players, but Hellmuth is by FAR my least favorite. The only other people that bother me are the people that scream at the top of their lungs when they win a pot. I can't wait to watch Hellmuth crash & burn this year.


Big Hands and Storylines:

Phil Hellmuth Eliminated in 45th Place

It’s official: This year’s World Series of Poker main event winner will not be a former champion.

After watching his stack slowly chip away, Phil Hellmuth finally made his stand by moving all in for 405,000 from under the gun. Hellmuth’s shove marked the first time today that Hellmuth was at risk for all of his chips. The action folded to Andrew Rosskamm who called. As the spectators rose to their feet, Hellmuth turned over AQ to Rosskamm’s JJ. As the shouts of encouragement came, the flop fell K43, failing to give Hellmuth a pair. As the dealer prepared to deal the turn card, several shouts of turn card requests from audience members filled the ESPN featured table area. Just as someone had requested, the 10 fell on the turn. This card gave Hellmuth several ways of winning the pot on the river. The chips would go his way if the river card was any ace, jack, queen, or heart. The crowd silenced as the 2 fell on the river.

Hellmuth earned $154,400 for his 45th place finish, bringing his WSOP career total earnings to $6,008,145, including 11 bracelet victories. After politely shaking the hands of his tablemates, Hellmuth exited the tournament area with a storm of obscenities, cursing his inability to “catch a break.”

What bothers me about Hellmuth is that, despite his tremendous success, he has yet to release a poker book/video/article that is worth two shits.

Based on this statement, I would classify you as either a Lion or a Jackal...Oh wait, or is it a mouse? Or an elephant? :-?

LOL, that book was such a self-aggrandizing crock...

I'm a Hellmuth fan. I got to meet him once and what a cordial guy, at least I thought so. I play a lot of poker and I have friends that are in the poker scene. They all have said that outside the table Hellmuth is one of the classiest guys. He is known to be a whiny bitch, but he always plays straight up. Maybe some of you know more than I do about him, but outside of poker I think he is a stand up guy.

The guy that annoys me the most is Sheik.

Agreed, I got one of his books and I don't think I'll finish it. :-t

There are a ton of classics on youtube of Phil getting pissed. I can't stand the guy unless he is pissed. Then he is funny.

Here is a good one.

I've heard pretty much the same. I know a professional poker player who is actually a pretty big name in the game, he told me that Hellmuth's whole act is just that. He has basically created a love-him-or-hate-him character that the TV networks love and the audience either love, or love to hate, but you can't deny his popularity and success. He's not exactly humble away from the table, but he's not the condescending prick that he comes across as.
