K9o as a starting hand? Really? I don`t even want to imagine the drama that would unfold, if someone should beat Hellmuth with such a weakish starting hand, and he was in the right mood for one of his usual meltdowns.

No matter what they are saying about this player and his temper, no doubt he is one of the best poker players, with the most WSOP bracelets on top of it. And the one that follows, not even close, since he is five bracelets ahead. Nice to see him back in wins

Phil Hellmuth is a very good player, we can not deny this and he will earn more money from poker in future. I did not watch his latest games and i do not know about his temper now. I think he's calm and when he had some escapes probably was in bad times. Anyway, he remains a reputable player.

Huge congratulations to Phil Hellmuth on winning the Borgata Winter Poker Open heads-up tournament! Heads-up poker is the purest form of the poker game and is one of my favorite game types. I prefer heads-up no-limit hold'em cash games over heads-up no-limit hold'em tournaments because there is always (unless you are extremely short-stacked) plenty of room for post-flop play.
