There is no one better to watch lose a hand than the poker brat, Phil Hellmuth. I recently saw him on TV last night play a hand where he lost with top set to a flopped straight and of course he had to say something at the end Post your favorite Phil Hellmuth videos/moments in here.
I think the act, as turned into the person. The act got him famous, and he has done it so much, that he has become the Poker Brat he pretended to be for so long. I appreciate his analysis, but can't stand watching him play.
I don't think it's an act. He's a poor sport and very unprofessional. Being able to handle bad beats and losing a hand is important. If the random player verbally attacked someone like he has they certainly would receive a penalty. He loves the attention from his outbursts but I truly believe he's an immensely immature man. He is obviously a great player with plenty of success, which is even more reason for his behavior to be totally out of line.
I don't think it's an act....I think that's just his personality. He truly believes that he is better than everyone else. His recent results prove him wrong, but he still believes......and part of the shtick is to attract attention. "Let them love or hate you, but don't let them forget you."
