The WSOP wouldn’t be the same without seeing Phil Hellmuth completely lose it a time or three. Here are a few of our favorite WSOP (World Series of Phil) moments €¦
Phil Hellmuth vs. Christian Dragomir
Hellmuth €™s raise with Ace-King gets called by his less seasoned opponent, who holds a measly T-4. Hellmuth tries to get inside the kid €™s head but the flop has a Ten on it and the Poker Brat folds to a bet. Dragomir shows the T-4 €¦cue a verbal storm from Mr. Hellmuth.
Phil Hellmuth vs. Adam Levy
Hellmuth flops a set of Eights and thinks he is slow playing trips. With a possible straight on board, Hellmuth reasons, €˜I €™m not tricky enough to play Q-T this good am I? €™ He €™s not but, unfortunately for Phil, Levy is. The hand ends with Hellmuth getting bleeped and wondering how €˜these players even last this long €™. Then he turns against the dealer €¦
Phil Hellmuth vs. Everybody
In a classic, from before the days of the hole-card cam, Hellmuth goes easy on four other players preflop despite having Aces. He shoves against an all-in on the flop only to get outrun by a pair of lucky card-catchers. But, Phil, isn €™t this what happens when
you slow play bullets? No matter. A flip-out still ensues.
