Polk: "Heads up is my thing"
Yeah, maybe. But here he will be the only one at the receiving end of all the whining from Hellmuth. This caught up with a lot of players over the last few decades.

I certainly like Helmut ... but he does not always play well and smoothly ..... so it seems to me that in this he can not win ..... although maybe I'm wrong .... Hellmuth is a very experienced player and in The right moment will be able to play well ... interesting will be a spectacle

I've watched a few videos in youtube from Doug Polk. Are poor movies with him. I do not know him so well, but I think his good movies asking for money or not showing them. I do not know what's going on but I'd rather watch another more exciting video about poker but made by other people who look better poker.

Now isnt this a gambling or what.
Entering a tournament with 50k, trying to win 200k Smile
I mean, you want to quadruple. thats fine. But doing this with 50k?
On the other hand when you have won millions out of it, not much of a thought for them Smile

According to my point of view the maximum favorite to win this mini challenge for 200,000 dollars to the winner, it is clearly Doug Polk since he has a clear advantage over the rest because the HU is his specialty, he handles this mode perfectly, that is why he takes advantage -

This should be a fascinating watch and it will be really interesting to see who comes out on top. Doug Polk is the undoubted favourite but i would love to see Phil Hellmuth win

Doug Polk is using his celebrity to earn some money on youtube. His videos are very helpful to all who follow him in twitch. Doug Polk is the undisputed favorite, but I would love to see Phil Hellmuth win as he is a very particular character and I really like that, haha ​​if I lose I think he would get very angry.-

well clearly this is not just an ordinary tournament, since you really not expecting to have a tournament with only 4 entrants do you? this is more like a promotional event to make a statement of some sorts which we will see once the tournament kicks in.

I had always enjoyed watching the $25,000 buy-in “National Heads-Up Poker Championship” produced by the NBC television network until NBC cancelled the show in 2014. I look forward to watching the live streaming of the “King of the Hill” heads-up tournament.

You mean THAT guy, where one better turns off the chat, if he got beaten. And heaven forbid, maybe even by an inferior starting hand. Yep, the tables seem to be full of those guys.

Sooner or later there won't be a poker pro who does not owned Hellmuth once or twice already.

He is getting pissed in the moment, but he really cares in general?
I doubt.
With all that money he has made so far, and still making every single year,
he is far from worrying who will beat him at a point.

hello my friends

Well everybody knows phil Helmuth so they can a some time be on the up side and cashing with him but he bounces back lots of times that is why he shows up on the top of all earnings lists
Something right he got to be doing not always losing to the others pros don`t you think?

Stay cool and enjoy life
