    Phil calling someone else a narcissist is absolutely priceless!!!

      Likewise, Doyle is possibly the most humble and sleepy/dead/boring player. but he still shows up at these games. because, the players want to beat him/dont mind losing to him. how many people do you both want to beat and dont mind losing too?

      In poker it is how you do in the long run that determines your skill level. Due to the luck factor in poker, it is possible for amateur players to occasionally beat professional players in single games. But again, it is the long run that matters. Whether you like or hate Phil Hellmuth, you can not deny he is one of the best players with all he has accomplished in the long run with how much money and championship tournaments he has won.

      @Sylthaya terribly wrong, just like OP Joe. Dude outdrew him every hand he won. If someone calls a preflop all in raise with 2 7 off suit, and the flop is 2-2-7 , that doesn't make the idiot who called a better player. It means the better player got screwed over simply because the other guy was low IQ

    Phil is the quintessential bully. He's dished it out for years without pushback from anyone (that I've seen) and when punched back, he cowers like a little b and is asking for help. Loved this!

      Legendary poker player Sam Grizzle gave it to Phil so much that they took it outside. And Sam busted Phil's nose. There are some great poker interactions between the 2 from the WSOP here on youtube.

      First thing I was thinking was Tony G as well. But sad before as well ;) Phil loved it to be spanked. He was mostly the person starting the talk just being outspoken by Persson. Mr 0% change to win won... great job. Negreanu is not having it from his big mouth he let the cards speak.

When Phil wins he is the greatest, when he loses he got unlucky and is the biggest cry baby of them all and when someone bluffs h8m or gets lucky or just plays better Phil tells them how bad they are and just talks down to everyone. What’s there not to get?

    It’s hilarious when Eric says “oh no, Phil’s gonna bring his C game” and laughs. It’s hilarious because Phil just gave away his top game plan for guys like him but he can do his top plan because it’s basically “Arena” rules. Eric says “oh know he’s gonna bring his C game” because he knows Phil just indirectly admitted how he would handle the situation his way if he could but he can’t because we’re not doing it his way. Phil immediately shuts down after realizing he fell for Perssons trap. Absolutely amazing table talk from Eric

    I have watched Phil bully, insult, demean and erase the humanity from lesser players. Actually surprised he was able to get away with it this long and that no one really fought back. He has earned the right to be arrogant because of his poker skills but not the right to treat other players like he does. Wouldn't mind seeing a beat down to teach him a little respect.

      ​@DirtyBird760 Nah, he could've folded. Should've.
      Phil played poorly. Angry decreases IQ, that's a fact.
      I've watched a few other videos of him, even when he had a perfect read of the opponent, he would still defy his own judgment and lose money.
      IDK if it's biased or not, but pretty much every video I watched from Phil, he lost. Most of them, playing poorly. A few with decent explanation.
      Here, completely stupid skill display. Amateurs do play better. Can't handle, don't play.

  • DipsticksOfficial

    When Phil started talking about how Persson is a narcissist, that was pure irony. Phil was either trying to play Persson at his own game (but worse), or he was somehow unaware of the fact that Persson has been straight up outplaying him AND getting under his skin. If Phil couldn't see that, then he's clearly the narcissist.
    And now that I've finished the video, it seems Phil had to force someone to come up and warn Persson, even though he was perfectly fine with it until he was losing very badly, but he had to create an illusion of power after being embarrassed so badly, and then he starts to verbally bash Persson? Phil is almost definitely a narcissist, but he might be insane too.

    I played poker professionally for a living a few years and I can tell you there is some skill involved and in the long run if you grind enough games you can make money by probably raising you're chance to win by probably 8 percent... But there isn't skill to the point where these so called professional narcissist's will have you believe

    Phil has some deep and serious character flaws. I’m surprised more people don’t take advantage of this.

  • Λουκάς Λουκίδης

    Persson did a great game he absolutely deserved the win and if you ask me too he is really comfy sitting and hearing the disrespectful comments of Phil on him . Calling him "Amateur" ? So bad of him when he is trapped in Perssons game . That was a game where i can say i like Persson as a type of personality and player . Well done dude

      @1kdise Stupid commenters dont realize when they've made a stupid comment.
      Even if Phil had won only ONE bracelet during the era when "real" poker players showed up, that would still put him among the ranks of "legitimate real players."
      And since he is top 20 of all time earners, that also shows that he is a legit champion since the pots werent nearly as large in the 80s-90s.
      Phils is also always contending at a final 4 and final 2 table, to this very day.
      So there goes your "Phil is a rookie" theory.
      And the fact that you keep whining and insist on being in complete denial over Phil being a top all-time player while ignoring his vast achievements past and current, shows that it's you, who's the female.

    • 1kdise

      @stephencarlsbad nope. Look at all of phils bracelets , most of em were in late 80s - 90s. Poker really started getting popular in the early 2000s. By then when real pros got to really playing phil had already won most of them bracelets 🤣🤣 i use to to root for Phil but he might as well be a female with all that whining n complaining

    Hellmuth seems like the kind of guy that needs the last word, always. He gets maddest here when Persson calls the judge on him and the judge gives him a warning. You'd think that the warning given to Persson would have been enough, but no. Hellmuth requires full verbal control of the situation or he is fuming

      @jeff d top g Helmuth isnt the greatest by a long shot, he just has the most rings because of beating noobs and playing low turnout tournaments in the era where competitive poker wasnt played by many. Head to head against the top 100 players he would lose 80% of the time. Which greats has he beaten for a ring? None. Which greats has he beaten for a cash game? Only Negreanu.
