oh...my bad. sorry. I can respect final tables and other non-1st place finishes, but not when I see that type of personality every time he's on tv (except for heads up tournies of course). A horrible player that's a nice guy trumps a horrible guy/personality that's a "good" player any day in my respect book. Gordon and Kaplan are prime examples, not that they're actually horrible players... The reason Hellmuth gets away with it is because you know he goes home and is generally a nice/decent guy and hopefully doesn't be a crybaby except in the sack.
Just because you have never heard of the player dosent mean the player isn't a great player. No one had ever heard of Shawn so everyone considered him lucky or a one hit wonder when he made 11th in wsop.
I've heard of him, and seen him play several times. I definitely thought his play was Very shotty during that week of Poker After Dark, but I think Hellmuth should have got more respect from Sheiky since he is the worlds greatest hold'em player and Phil was courteous, probably deserved it even if he wasn't, but Sheiky couldn't hold himself back. I guess it comes down to, I can't respect a guy with no bracelets and a bad attitude, and especially someone who doesn't respect Hellmuth, even if he is outrageous and a cry baby sometimes.
