Helmuth said "see if you're around in 2 years." And you know what? I side with Helmuth.....Dwan said it was a standard play......lol......shoving an additional 20 BB heads up is standard.......sometimes I wonder how certain internet up and comers are so successful.
I Think P Helmuth is the best Tourney player on the planet , but I have to take durrrr's side . He won ... went to shake hands and the brat went off on his play .. winning play I might add. Then Durrr tossed a huge wad of of CASH on thge table and said play again phil?
He then went on to challenge Phil to a series of cash games (HU$ROLLZZZ)... any time any , where , any amount. So he getsd a ton of points for putting his money where his mout is. Phil Helmuth is a poor sport IMHO .
I watch PAD , High Stakes poker and am always reading . Plus I am an amatuer forum whore . If I could only find a way to make some cash for the hours I spend reading forums.
