I've always been the first to get in line and slap Phil for his attitude and antics and poor cash play. But he has absolutely ruled tournament poker for the past 2 years, and he showed everyone in this tournament that he can change up and stay relevant.
#2 in POY last year and almost a lock to win it this year, 13 WSOP
bracelets, 2 ME wins, all time high in WSOP cashes and #3 in all time earnings, with 3 $1M+ scores in 2 years.
Hate his actions all you want and I'll join you, but you can't argue with his career. So yeah, I was stoked to see him take it down. Nobody gave it to him, he earned it.
