It may come as no surprise to anyone that Phil Hellmuth, also known as "The poker brat likes to praise himself when he wins hands, but also likes to shout at his opponents when he think they played a hand incorrect.
In Phil Hellmuth's latest blog entry one can read about an amazing call he made in the Premier League Poker last November when he played heads-up against JC Tran and made a crazy, but good call.
This is how the hand was played out:
JC has the big blind and Phil the small blind on the button.
Phil calls the big blind and JC check
FLOP: 8 A 4
JC checks and Phil Bets 15,000 straight away. JC thinks for a few seconds and then decides to re-raise to 30,000 and Phil calls
TURN K (Pot is now 90,000)
JC bets 35, 000 and Phil calls him in less than a second.
RIVER 2 (Pot is now 160,000)
JC thinks for a moment and then decides to move all-in. Pot is now 292,000 and Phil needs put another 132,000 to call JC's all-in. Phil looks at JC and then at his chips. And after going through all possible hands JC can have he decide to call with 5 8, a pair of 8's and JC shows 5 2 for a bluff and only a pair of 2's.
One can only imagine the great feeling Phil must have had when he called down J.C. Tran, a world class poker player with only a pair of 8's with a weak kicker when millions of TV viewers all around the globe.
