    Why would someone pay $430,000 for a house that zillow says is only worth $325,000?

    It's a con. Phil Hellmuth Jr. thinks he can find a stupid poker fan boy who will buy it because he believes that Phil is the greatest poker player in the world.

    The home is in the Las Vegas country club.

    However it's not very desirable to live in that neighborhood anymore.

    If Phil Hellmuth had any integrity left, he would've retired from poker nine years ago on April 15th 2011 black friday.

    The fact that he has expensive wine just standing up in his basement...not even on their sides shows hes a bit of a dipshit.

    I mean the guy never really played higher cash games that much. He just does everything he can to get attention at the table and presumably his name out there for more stakes. Plays tournaments because of all the free equity he gets from being backed. We just assume he is some smart guy that did well with all the money he made. The only reason we think that is because he's played so many tourneys. The only reason he's played so many tourneys are his antics and chasing sponsorship money.

    We just assume he made good decisions elsewhere, but who know? Seems like a guy who could lose his ass in the stock market.

    He knows that if he does cheat there's a very good chance, because of his name, that the chick will blackmail him
    It is in my bones which sucks so can make it hard to move sometimes. Trying to spend as much time with friends and family.

    Because it's not 1975.

    Zillow estimates are highly inacurate but, given how this place has never been updated the estimate is probably accurate here. 0.0 chance somebody pays 430k or anything close to that.

    Could be drumming up business for Karina Jett in a way?

    in many cases zillow can't be used as an accurate price point

    given that his audience are primarily poker players, he would be an absolute fucking idiot not to set the price at 30%+ estimated value.

    Was that really shot in that neighborhood?

    Also why not just build newer, better houses there? Is there something wrong with the neighborhood itself? I mean it's a country club.

    In the '60s through '80s, it was a big deal to live in either a country club or one of those higher-end apartment complexes with a doorman. That showed you were somebody.

    These symbols of status started to fade in importance in the '90s and beyond.

    If you visit Dodger Stadium, which was built in the early 60s, you'll notice that there's a weird but small "club level" across the entire stadium, complete with a "stadium club" in the corner of it. That was all part of that same school of thought. They later converted a lot of that to suites, but some of those fail club seats still remain.

    I get that, but is there anything wrong with the place?

    I'm asking because I'd like to get a small place in a safe neighborhood fairly close to the strip that I can use when I'm there and also let friends or business associates use it when they're there. It doesn't have to be a house but I don't want one of those managed places where you pay huge fees to the management company. Someone advised me that was a good area to look.

    I'm not buying that place from Hellmuth because it looks like crap. But I'm happy to take anyone's suggestions.
