re: Poker & Hellmuth crashes before crashing out
The media created Phil Hellmuth, not the other way around. Props to Hellmuth for using what the media has spun to his advantage. The guy has 11 bracelets and is one hell of a poker player, no doubt about it. You may luck your way into 1, maybe even 2... but not 11. As for his cry baby antics, it's all a table image and part of the persona the media has created for him. Yes, he get's frustrated just like any player but the guy knows what he's doing. He doesn't even seem like that bad of a guy when he is at the table and he usually gives his opponents credit when it is due. I mean how many guys do you know that flop top pair with AK and can lay it down knowing someone is holding AA? He can dodge bullets, but apparently not poles?
