I recently told my opponent who took me out that he made a bad play and it got me thinking, what is your "Phil Hellmuth moment"?

I had one last night with my first experience on CAKE. I kept getting my pocket cards cracked due to suckouts and stupidity on the players part.

yesterday i had a bit of hellmuth moment, I shoved with QJ trying to steal blinds and one limper, guy had 3 times my stack and called with A4 I didnt really snap but was like T_T how can you call a shove with that? He won lol, but its all good :D... honestly there are few really really bad moves in poker... they're usually so obvious that everyone knows not to do them...

I think I could be Phil if I played pro, I was going to tell a story but whats the point! I have been beaten with every junk hand, every one out wonder, by every Northern European, by every suck out artist, whoops, having a moment!

I usually restrain myself, but have had a couple. They often happen after I've been playing too many hours in a row. The latest was someone I called a "dumbazz". He called my pocket aces three bet with Q-4....and of course flopped two pair.

Kings full broken by quad 3. When the villain flopped a set from a 33K board, he almost bet his life with them.

I cant have a Phil Helmuth moment because I have a lifetime chat ban.

Hahaha. Do you really?

When you have a Phil Hellmuth moment:
In live poker, instead of yelling like Phil you should print out a life size copy of your avatar, and when someone makes a stupid moves or sucks out at you, just hold that up to them for like 3 minutes.

LOL that poster would be like "WTF man?" "What's your deal bro?" "Pathetic" all without saying a word. That would be so freakin funny.

Dude, I have no idea why I'm so obsessed with your avatar. Every time I see it, it makes me chuckle!

If you ever remove it, then it's </3 between me and you.

I can take a couple of bad beats in a row without having a "Phil". But after two or three bad beats when someone is playing stupid and keeps sucking out on you and finally you get kings or aces and you slow play them a bit and he bluffs all in with 9,Q off and hits the straight. That's enough to do it for me, although I don't berate the player, I just start talking to myself: "This just can't happen"!!! :eek:

Trouble is, it happens a lot! :(

I go Phil Hellmuth when my friends have a poker game. We play stupid rules where its a sit n go 1/2 blinds and 20 chips (same value, I know, really dumb) so I get AK and shove and my friend calls me on QT and draws out on me. I just went on about that for like 10 minutes.

Later that night I had to point out a full house when the entire table missed it and I was a little bitter from getting knocked out by QT so I said "If I'm not here the whole game goes to shit." Seriously, one guy had trips and hit a full house on the river when the board paired and everyone thought the guy who had three of that card won. I have a lot of Phil Hellmuth moments with my friends.

I use the possibility that I'm in a Hellmuth moment to realize that I'm currently steaming and to walk away. Anytime I start talking through the screen at my opponents, (with the purpose of explaining to them why they are wrong to play the way they did,) I think, "This could be a Phil like reaction"

Fortunately those moments are fewer and fewer between.

i used to get pissed after losses but now i just kind of suck it up, sometimes i still complain about it on forums though lol

less emotion i put into the game the more detached from the money i will get, it works i know but its hard to apply sometimes... especially when you dont exactly have a huge roll.

Don't feel bad I had the same thing happen with Aces. In my situation I went on a bad run with AA to the point where I was counting how many in a row got cracked. That was number 13 in a row and thankfully the last.

I've had one Phil Helmuth moment of my own.

And I also had a moment with Phil Hellmuth.

-------------

My Hellmuth Moment:

Late in an MTT and I am table chip leader. I am going for the win, this is at Pechanga Casino in So Cal. I have AKo, i 3bet and the guy tanks and calls instead of just shoving in the rest of his chips which seemed automatic. Flop came, he checks i shove all in , he tanks and calls, he has q high and i am in the lead. River = Q. I'm crippled as it turns out, next hand aipf with 66 and i get called by 77 and i am out. I flip out, call the entire casino a bunch of shithead amateurs that "dont even know how to spell poker AND can't even spell ESPN". Got a good laugh on the way out.

---------------

My moment WITH Phil Hellmuth

I'm at the Commerce Casino with a friend and I show him the top table and all the big guys are there. Ivey, Hanson, Brunson, Hellmuth and more. Suddenly Phil stands up and begins a ridiculous tirade just like you see on TV. Sits down, stands up again, all the time whining and pointing at Ivey. Finally he gets up and storms off ... and heads DIRECTLY for me and a friend. He brushes by my friend's shoulder (keep in mind Phil is a HUGE dude) and my friend just says "guess I shouldn't ask for his autograph" and we just burst into laughter. We hear Phil says "Pfft whatever PAL!" as he storms off.
