    Maybe next time you’re at a table with him you ask him what’s the roll of toilet paper by his bed for?

    Since he takes these trips without his wife, I think we know.

    With that said, I will give Hellmuth credit in that it's believed he's always been faithful to his wife, and there are not any rumors about him seeing hookers or messing around with poker groupies.

    He finished it off. Helmuth is a god amongst men.
    It's hilarious that we as a society think everyone can be a dr, a lawyer, an engineer. Some people are just fucking stupid. Why can't we just accept that?

    If you're in Vegas, drop by the Bellagio or Aria, and you're sure to run into him. He likes to do laps around casinos with poker rooms after winning a bracelet, so people passing by can congratulate him.

    I wish I were joking.

    I love how all the young geniuses like to talk shit about how terrible he plays. The dude obviously has a feel for the game unlike many others ever. Narrative has always been he can only beat bad players in holdem tourneys. However, his tourney record in mixed games over the last ten years in almost unmatched.

    It’s amazing how much the young geniuses KNOW, but don’t DO. Not only in poker.

    I remember back in 2006 on Two Plus Two, on one of the many threads where people argued about whether Hellmuth was any good or not, Gobbo declared that Sam Stein was a much better player than Hellmuth. Where are they now? Stein hasn't cashed at the WSOP in 3 years.

    Phil Hellmuth is going to take a break today so he can send out press releases that he is "The Greatest Poker Player in the World" today because he has 16 WSOP bracelets. Now instead of only making $100K to host your private poker tournament for rich assholes, he will charge $150K.

    Phil Hellmuth is just too humble and does not want to cause a disturbance.

    BULLSHIT!

    Phil was the one who gave himself the name "poker brat".

    The players never call him that. They call him instead asshole, cock sucker and motherfucker.

    As much as I've criticized Hellmuth's table behavior and UB association, I was never on the "Hellmuth sucks" train. The only exception was when talking about his limit holdem play, which at least in 2008, was inferior to the good online players at the time. However, there was never any doubt that he had tremendous tournament talent, and in recent years, he's also proven himself in heads up NL cash.

    I also think he's improved his mix game skills since the 2000s.

    He's clearly the best overall WSOP player presently. I don't mean cumulatively. I mean right now -- he's the best player at the WSOP. That's pretty amazing considering that he's 56 years old, and is going up against all of these younger guys who learned via solvers through hundreds of thousands (or millions) of hands, plus have a lot more energy than he does.

    Phil's game is often misjudged as weak because his strength comes more from inducing opponents into mistakes, rather than relentless aggression or fancy moves. That's also how his game has remained timeless, whereas others who rely on poker trends du jour tend to find themselves obsolete soon enough, when the game changes around them.

    Maybe Im wrong but he never degrades established pros, except that one minor thing with Dwan and that was heads up i think

    His latest tirade target was Anthony Zinno, who has won 2 bracelets already this World Series and who I may put up against Hellmuth in Druff’s “best World Series player right now” argument.

    Phil Hellmuth is the Greatest Poker Player of All Time

    Nicky Pipes has always known this, it is obvious.

    Brothers back in the poker boom I remember seeing the Nerds and Virgins crying the PH was not “gto” and didn’t play according to “math equations”

    Guess what?

    When Hellmuth was a child a psychic came to his families home and told his entire family that he was going to be very special.

    Do you understand?
