The prestigious annual poker festival referred to as the World Series of Poker (WSOP) is full of surprises. The long hours and especially the consecutively long days can get to one's nerves, but it certainly isn't right if one player harasses another for no particular reason at all. For example, an intoxicated English poker player named Stuart ‘NutterRutter' Rutter tried to harass the 14-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth as well as the other players at the table, resulting to multiple penalties and the security behind his back.


Below are from Matt Smith's Twitter feed:



Event #60: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo or Better Championship attracted a total of 237 player entries, including the likes of notable poker pros namely Eli Elezra, Scott Bohlman, Ari Engel, Brian Rast, Daniel Negreanu and Mike Matusow. However, it appeared that Rutter only was focused on getting on Phil's nerves, and according to some witnesses, this resulted to the ‘PokerBrat' apparently asking for Rutter to be 86'd (banned) from the event.


Even though the inebriated Rutter wasn't permanently banned, the WSOP site updates said, "Stuart Rutter is back at his seat after an intermezzo when he was in a sin bin for one hour, following multiple verbal insults towards Phil Hellmuth."

At the end of Day 1 things somehow went smoothly, Rutter surviving with a short stack whilst the other big names all made it through with ease.

On Day 2, Phil Hellmuth got busted at 132nd place, taking home no money from this event. Same goes for his harasser Stuart Rutter, who settled in 88th place.

Like helmuth is a player that you can harass at the tables.
He has played so many live tournaments, that he has what it takes to ignore
all the comments.
Not easy to tilt that player.
He just tilt himself when he sees the other player's cards Smile

Honestly at this point in his life he probably no more cool than a half-heated oven. Youtube is full with his outburts from the last couple years, seems easy to make him go tilt though it has to be somebody who is not drunk cause this guy was just annoying...

This is not a problem because Phil Hellmuth receives the same punishment which he offered to other players in the past. When he hurt the players on the tables with idiot, and then he talked to his wife with ,,look honey'' no one was harassed but now when he is offended Phil H. is harassed. HAHA...

an intoxicated English poker player named Stuart "NutterRutter" Rutter certainly had fun .... and Helmut too .... an interesting event and the events on it are also very funny .... and the fact that Stuart "NutterRutter" Rutter was above Helmut in the result of not looking at intoxication is also cool

I was pretty shocked by this when i read it. I have watched Stuart Rutter a fair few time on Sky Poker TV over the years and he has always come across as a quietly spoken guy, i guess not looking at this

Yeah the best way to tilt phil hellmuth is to call his bets and get lucky. He can't stand it when players get lucky against him. Then once he's tilted you just have to add a little something, it doesn't need to be an insult, just something to keep the tilt going lol. Phil Hellmuth is pretty tight at poker and if he does a mistake it's going to be an agressive one, so I would just call a lot against him with good holdings. I would let him outplay himself Blink He isn't the most comfortable guy on the turn & river.
