Posted on 20 September 2019 by "T".

Phil Hellmuth criticized for "going south" as he demanded money from Mike Matusow during a televised cash game at the Bicycle Casino in Los Angeles.

At the end of August, big poker stars gathered for a high stakes cash game at Live At the Bike! with JJ De La Garza as the episode's commentator.

The players were Phil Hellmuth, Mike "The Mouth" Matusow, Antonio Esfandiari, Daniel ‘Jungleman' Cates, Brandon Cantu, Bill Klein, Garrett Adelstein, Nick Vertucci and Randall Emmett. Blinds were set at $50/$100/$200 but since they are not your ordinary poker pros who like to play it safe, stakes are expected to increase quickly.

This story is about law enforcement called to come to a poker tournament due to a complaint lodged by a poker player, but things turned awry instead for the one who called the cops.

He was at the Golden Gates Casino in Blackhawk, Colorado on Monday, August 19, when he witnessed this somewhat normal scenario that ended up pretty strange yet funny.

Posted on 03 February 2010 by "T".

Phil Hellmuth is known for many, many things. However, we're going to make it brief. Phil is one the world's best and most successful tournament poker players. He's the ambassador for a very successful poker site, Ultimate Bet. However, he has a big problem, and that is that he has a very bad temper which makes him go on tilt for almost nothing.

There are plenty of clips on youtube and other sites where one can watch Phil Hellmuth get angry and frustrated after that another player has played a hand in a way he find stupid. Phil Hellmuth knows that this have costed him a lot of money, and therefore he has decided to do something about it. Sam Chauhan, a mindset coach, has been hired by Phil Hellmuth to help him cope with the difficulties being he. Chauhan has helped pros like Antonio Esfandiari and Gavin Smith before - with great results! 

We will probably have to wait at least until 2010 WSOP before we'll get to see if Chauhan's expertise coaching has helped Phil.

Last week one could read on Ilari Sahamies blog that things are not going his way at the moment. For example he complained a lot about himself being unlucky, but also that he played very bad. All this because he lost 1.4 million dollars (400k of them coin flips) in two hours against Phil Ivey. After this huge loss he wrote the following in the poker chat about his scheduled trip to London to play EPT and WSOPE.

"Ziigmund: no london"
"Ziigmund: jumping from balkony"
"Phil Ivey: lol"

However, according to what he wrote in his blog, it seems like he's still planning on going to London.

"I hate that fcking poker still and havent had good feeling playing that bullshit game like in 4 months....Whatever...Im going to fcking London next week where I play fcking EWSOP,fcking EPT and F Cesar cup and those fcki"
