Surrounded by dozens of women, trumpeters and cheered on by his fans, Phil Hellmuth arrived dressed up as Julius Ceasar at the 2009 WSOP Main Event.
The WSOP legend who won the main event 20 years ago arrived to his table 2 hours after the play had begun, with him at the table he had body-painted female gladiators and muses carrying rose petals in tote bags.
"When you dress as Caesar you actually feel more powerful," Hellmuth said.
"Kiss my ring!" the 11-time gold bracelet winner shouted. "Hail Caesar!"
He greeted World Series of Poker Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack and his table mates in front of the TV cameras. after the first level of play he went off to change into something more comfy.
Hellmuth, who last year entered the series dressed as Gen. George S. Patton, said his entrances have become a personal tradition at the series that he has looked to top each year.
"It's kind of a fun spectacle," Hellmuth said. "I think it's great for poker."

| This guys can do everything they want. If i tryed to enter in a casino dressed up like that, security people would call the guards from the psiquiatric hospital. This is pure entertainment, and Phil Helmuth, like others, are the best on it. They just aply others ideas, but only good ideas. Everything for fun!|

| I think Phil is pretty cool. I just don't like how he thinks he's better than everyone. On that Poker Challenge between him and Annie Duke, she blasts him for that. He always thinks he's right and doesn't much listen to anyone else. But he's a great player, and a pretty entertaining character.|

| Many people hate Phil for his bragging and ''ass'' attitude.|
He is not the best player, but he definitly got great skills and his ''act'' being an ass is just part off the show.
Its not my favourate player but definitly a great player.

| Yeah he is a great player and one of the best calls i seen him make http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMI10JPC6V4|
I get the impression though that he thinks he's Super Cool or something but, everytime I see him he just reminds me of one of those really annoying kids at school I used to bully

| Ive never been Hellmuth's biggest fan with all that wimpering n wineing like a 'Bratt' , but u can't fault his game play and its characters like him that make the game special and makes those late nights at ring games more then just about making money.|

In this tourney he bluffed off half his stack. So one CAN fault his game play.
