Phil Hellmuth - a living legend

Tags: 2011 wsop, bio, gus hansen, history, Phil Hellmuth, the poker players championship
Posted on 06 July 2011 by "T".
What an incredible performance by Phil Hellmuth at this year's World Series of Poker. He has finished second in two events, cashed in another 3 events, and right now he's in 3th place in the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship with only 9 players left. There is no doubt whatsoever that he will miss out on the final table table (8 players) tomorrow and fight for his 12th gold bracelet. Yes, you hea[...]   Read more » Phil Hellmuth - a living legend

Outstanding player, the first one to play in modern way. I don't like him so much but must admit he's one of the best.

If he wins this $50k tourney, he can't play the Main Event. His ego wouldn't fit in the room. Smile

Phil Hellmuth's antics used to get under my skin, but now I can't wait for him to be matched up against somebody like Tony G or Tom Dwan. Seeing him explode and rant is rather entertaining! Still, he is a proven winner, and I love seeing the older guys working on their game and start winning again.

I must admit he is trually a great poker player, maybe a bit too tight sometimes, but overall is a great poker player. Smile

Still, you can dig his ego and scenes he makes at some tables, and for this reason many people contest his poker attitude, but no one said that he lacks on poker skills Blink

It would be cool if he could win this bracelet too considering the buy in requirments, i mean only wsop champions and afterall he has the most bracelets on his arm. Plus he really set a trend when he won his first bracelet, i mean a young guy beat a poker legend like Johnny Chan Smile

Look at Hellmuths record in the WSOP. Notice how every single one of his bracelets has been at HOLDEM.

No matter whether you like him or hate him, the one thing you cannot say is that he's an average player.... He is, without any doubt, the most succesful holdem player ever to grace the poker world. Theres no one comes remotely close to his record at Holdem....

lol yes he is a tit but for once i think i would like him to win this, i think your right shokaku playing the main event if he wins this is out the question his ego may just kill him Smile

Come on toxic you may hate him but to call him average is just a bit of a stupid statement, hes in with a good chance to win this and he has came 2nd in 2 events already im sure most great players would love to have done so average this year at the WSOP lmao

Go Phil.....................

I don't like him much either. I would like to see him win. If he does, we should all cheer him and say well done. He is sometimes what we all hate about celebrity, but he is a good poker none the less. His results in this years WSOP prove that.

Good luck Phil.

this guy is clearly overrated.. he could never compete with the top online players out there u played probably more hands in their short young lives than this oldschool fella in his whole career.. nevertheless hes still an icon for tournament poker and the sport itself good advertisment for any poker platform Dollar Dollar
