In case you missed it, Tony G and Phil Hellmuth have not only been taking part in World Poker Tour Malta main event in the past few days, but they have also been competing in basketball and swimming as a part of an ongoing triathlon. Tony G won the first leg (basketball) and Phil Hellmuth won the swimming event - just like expected. However, Tony G had a better time when he won and will therefore get a 1 minute and 6 seconds advantage in the last competition of three, running.
Here you can check out videos from the swimming and the basketball events:
One minute is a lot of time in a running race, and i don't know if Phil Helmut has what it takes to beat Tony G racing (both seem slow on this), but maybe i am wrong and things can still turnaround for Helmuth's side, who knows? Just watching. These guys always have to give something more to what is already great. Portugal doesn't have it and i don't know if exists, but if a poker tv channel would apply to follow all of this side crazyness, along with the most spectacular moments from the poker events, it would be guaranteed share!
Oh boy, i still haven't seen the seconf movie, it's such a laugh, you have to ear at minute 1:10 when the reporter says Phil Helmut "looks like a dolphin"! Ok, he is ahead of Tony G, but he looks more like a sea lion to me
