Re: Can Phill Hellmuth really play?
You exagerate as usual, Phil Helmuth was too young to enter US Casinos 30 years ago. Let's say 25 or 26 years. 1 bracelet every 2 years.
Apparently it cost $238,500 to enter every US WSOP event this year (excluding One Drop) and Helmuth does not play them all. So over 4 years he has paid far less than he has won at the WSOP.
It seems that confidence/ego is an important factor in Poker success (as in most other competitivie endeavours). Not that I condone his behaviour. He has in the past sought help for his outbursts, but probably finds them profitable from a marketing point of view, I'm afraid.
