Watching Phil’s face when he loses 3 out of 4 run outs when he’s an 85% chance to win is self care.
@Aidan ColePhil was being nice letting him run it 4 times. I am not anywhere near this level but I don’t like running it multiple times even when I am behind.
I was crying lol
@gertjan van der meij actually, statistically running it more times with the winning hand is good
Since statistically means you win that much of the pot (vs possibly getting unlucky on the one time shot and losing it all)
basically its insurance of 15% of the pot to gain 85% of it
The cannon didn't know this, running it 4 times actually was Phil trying to fuck over the cannon, and lady karma struck hard
@DoctorChained nobody lives THAT long however
I didn't think anything could ever make me feel sorry for Phil Hellmuth. Tony G proved me wrong.
@John Doe genius move yes, but being a douche afterwards was not cool.
PH is abusive to amateurs and dealers. Nothing that can happen on a poker table is gonna make me feel sorry for him 😅 Also, he called out of greed, believing he was ahead of most hands. So...
@Winston Smith Finally someone gets it.
@theMosen again, I like to believe that if it was anyone besides Phil, he wouldn't have lied.
Guys, it's simple: Tony had every right to lie about looking at his cards, and the rest of the world has every right to consider him a POS for executing that right. That's how etiquette works.
Tony G was absolutely brutal. Every word he said was destructive
@voteZDLR it wasnt about "getting in someones head" and if anyones a sheep its you. Its called dignity and morals. if you feel comfortable lying to win, you have neither. It shows your character as he said. Its a snake move and isnt about mind games. It shows your character for backing him too. its a shame slimey human beings exist. theyll do anything for an advantage because they know deep down THEY THEMSELVES arent good enough. Those of us that know what im saying, know.
@smokt I mean, it's part of the game though. If you are getting beaten by someone playing Poker using any strategy available to him, it's not as if it's outside of the rules and/or illegal to play that way. It's a skill issue at that point. It's very much part of the game. If you're trying to suggest that poker doesn't revolve around psychology to a certain extent, you fundamentally misunderstand poker. Tony G knows that with Phil in particular all he has to do is get inside of his head then he can pretty much influence the way the man plays. Poker as much as it is about anything else is noticing people's strengths, weaknesses, and patterns, then using it to your advantage to win hands you may not have otherwise just because you like to play "sheepish" and "safe". It's almost as if at its heart poker is gambling, or something? Go figure.
@voteZDLR Theyre not the same and arent supposed to be part of the game. Its like leveling the QB when you know hes an inch from out of bounds. Its slimy and a scum tactic. youre going to be looked at different and nobody is going to invite you back to the table.
That's poker. If you can't take it, leave. I think Tony G is absolutely hilarious!
Man that 3/4 is easily one of the best poker clips ever
@713anand not true...running it multiple times is actually beneficial to the person with the winning hand
lets say you run though the deck with 85%, you win 85% of the time
in the long run, that's basically putting an insurance of 15% of the pot to win 85% of it
The BEST! So happy for him esp against PH.
@713anand He was being nice, everyone was giving him shit for slow rolling.
@Tékozló fiú because your giving more chances for them to get lucky
"if your ahead why rerun?"
@713anand Let's say you are 99% ahead. The optimal strategy would be to rerun it a couple of million times. Your chances are literally the worst if you run it only once.
Folding Aces pre-flop must be the best play ever made.
@Davey Jones Correct
@Mr Beegle wtf are you even talking about here? If two people go all in before you, and you have bullets you go all in 8 days a week. The best hand they can have is the other two aces, and that would lead to a split pot barring flush. Any AK AQ hole is dominated by you. And KK or QQ is just a race
@Reaper 12Beven if he would have flopped a full house it makes sense. I don’t know why everyone is struggling with the very simple logic.
Folding everything gets him $100k and he doesn’t want to gamble. Most traditional game theory / statistics go completely out the window in his particular situation
@tym 001It is stupid. Worked out at the end, but It was a stupid move.
I’m thinking the same thing
I like how Phil, of all people, is preaching etiquette in the last one.
He's right though. It was poor etiquette. That's like lying about how many chips you have. Lying about cards is a bluff. Lying about anything else is just lying
@Hammerlane which means the strategy worked. Tony G did nothing wrong here.
Tony’s hand against Vanesa shows that he can take it just as good as he can give it
When Daniel said " Why is everyone so happy except Phil?!" I found the true inner peace 😂😂😂😂😂😂
Antonio's reaction to Harlow's cards at 1:05 is pure comedy, he knows exactly what's going to happen
@RPGManoWar HE showed him after he realized that he was peeking.
@Siddhant Ghildiyal well Russ showed him the hand so it wasn't really a peek
Etiquette aside this is a more relaxed game, and lets be honest if you see someone like Phil about to get in a car crash of bad luck you do want to watch.
kinda bad etiquette from Antonio.
You shouldnt peek at others cards.
Phil vs. Tony G is the greatest. It’s like an evil sadistic bond villain vs. a bratty comic book villain
26:56 "Why is everyone so happy, except Phil?" is comedy GOLD... 😂😂
What an amazing moment.
Phil’s face after the 3rd & 4th runs… I’m dead 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣
here, "sick" used appropriately
I swear of all the videos I’ve watched, he’s had the worst of luck lol
That first hand is never not gonna be funny. Tony G loves giving Hellmuth a hard time too. Just the perfect storm for poker hilarity. As evident by the last hand. "Of course I lied, it's poker Phil." Lol
Tony G woke up and chose violence haha.
"Why is everyone so happy except Phil?" LOL
I love how openly and enthusiastically Danial was rooting against and him.
He feels not lucky that day
literally the best clip here lmaooo
Negreanu laughing at Hellmuth is one of my favourite things to watch
Barry Greenstein going “she has live cards” and Phil Laak going “oh boy” simultaneously after Vanessa punts is one of the greatest needles ever.
Phil is a true player that could learn from the other person
I could definitely see Tony G yelling in someone’s back swing in a golf match for money haha
It's golf. What do you expect :) He thinks Happy Gilmore is real lol
@Pedro Lombardi 73 plenty of liars in amateur golf
@Wet Farts 32 that was the best comment.🤣
Yes also can see him taking a dump in your toilet and not flushing
Negreanu and Laak were as happy as they had put there money in. Absolutely loved the excitement from both.
This clip made me realize that these competitors are all good friends. The interactions we are watching move the sport of poker forward. These things happen in poker games all the time. In the end, they agree to disagree, and remain friends. Regarding the intermittent chatter of the other players, it's amazing to see these minds actually work together to produce a play, totally improvised... and very entertaining. It's also like watching a group of geniuses debate a very important subject.
I love Ernest and I love how the whole table stuck up for Ernest cause that was a ugly slow roll by Phil and he knows it
@The Sauce Yeah it's a tossup for me, since there are still two hands that beat him there, not really an actual slow roll. But for me A9 with that flop is a push for sure, I wouldn't have done much talking.
Wasn't a slow roll
@Noah Gragg it’s only slow rolling after the action is done and u know u have your opponent dominated and then u slowly show that you have him dominated
@McDino99 Knowing you have the best hand but playing it like you don't think you're in a winning position.
what is a slow roll?
19:01 The look of pure smug satisfaction on Perkins face for the situation that PH is in is absolutely hilarious!
According the Clip-Share algorithm, Hellmuth never wins.
Vanessa Selbst never wins at all on Clip-Share.
And look at him the last 4 years..he is destroying everyone heads up and won another bracelet..
Watching YT last 40 years, Hellmuth never won .
Just thinking same.
Love the commentators. Getting strong Norman Chad vibes from the one. The timing, the comments. Love it.
wiggins' table with Helmuth has to be the most entertaining poker table ever in the history of texas holdem poker. BY FAR!!!!! I love how Daniel goes "Why is everyone so happy?" I think we all know the answer to that. lmao. definitely the best!!!!!
"why is everyone so happy... EXCEPT Phil" gets me everytime
To an extent, Tony G is out of line in some of these spots, but in general he only gives a hard time to people who deserve it. Some of it is just cage-rattling that you get used to as a professional player, and some is over the line, but as a pro, you handle it. In multiple instances on this video, Phil Hellmuth not only didn't act like a pro, but also didn't play like one. His A9 call vs KQ and his A5 vs KQ in particular were exceptionally bad plays.
Last one with Phil and tony g is why I secretly love tony g. Such a villain and fully embraces it, I love it
@Dan Gerous fucking comment police over here..
You copied the other guys comment calling Tony a villain.
If Tony pulled that on anyone else I’d say that’s a lil shady BUT since it was Phil I died laughing 😂😂
@Jeremy Skibba Tony a legend for sure
The point is that he wouldn't. The only person he goes after that hard is Phil Hellmuth because of how cocky he is and he thinks he's the best so Tony goes after him. Outside of poker TonyG is a great guy. Really nice and donates a ton of money to charities.
"WHy is everyone so happy!?! except Phil?!" That will never not make me laugh out loud
Phil is so funny when he loses, I love his tilt, I'd rather sit with a personality like him than a tony g or other annoying players imo.
antonio’s face when the LC shows his hand is priceless
“I think you should take your coach, get a tandem bike, and get the hell out of here!” what a villain 😂
Greatest line ever lmao its close with the Ralph Perry king jack
@KROGAN loves kittens and puppies with that logic, pro athletes coaches should be playing instead of the pros themselves. That goes for every sport imaginable assuming that the pro players are generally better than the coaches.
@Anonymous Raw overdosed on teeth whitener
Haha that was hard
F**king menace 😂😂
I love the commentary throughout the whole Tony G Rousso battle
"Why is everyone so happy except Phil" stays gold no matter how many times you watch it
I love Tony G says “heart and commitment to tha game” 😂
Make a new season please, it was so entartaining to watch
Tony g always has me crying laughing 😂😂😂😂😂
I always watch the Wiggins clip when I'm having a really bad day. Cheers me up instantly
As much as I love the old-school players and for as much hate as the newer crop of players gets, there are some solid players out there with good personalities
They were so unfair on Phil in that Wiggins hand. He was right the guy seemed so confident pocket 10s were a distinct possibility. Then look at Phil's face after the 2nd run. He's so happy the guy stayed in. He even took the 3 bad beats well.
The dealers had such a great time. The show was all about big personalities colliding and they had the front row seat.
Phil -- "It's not fair! I'm not winning!!!"
And Tony pedaling Phil out the door was the best.
I have such conflicting views on Tony G. He is insanely rough on pros (Especially Helmuth, but he is asking for it.) but all the loose canons he is rooting for, even if they beat him.
Tony G is the man. He only goes after people who deserve it and he's always very kind to the amateurs and friendly to other players in general so long as they aren't too up themselves. And he's hilarious and actually good at poker so there's that. I think he makes the show better.
@Yeah_Sounds Good. general etiquette and poker etiquette are very different. Being a bitch after a hand doesn’t cost your opponent any money, so who cares. Lying about your cards, angle shooting, etc. is very different.
He’s a POS for lying to Phil
Tony G is like a batman villain. You know he's evil, but you still like to see him win
That Doyle/Barry/Daniel hand was awesome.... those 3 generally had no idea what the other 2 had... 😄
Fishmen folding pocket aces might be one of the greatest lay downs of all time lol
I love when Tony G is on the same table as Hellmuth.
Gotto love the vanessa vs tony, great playing from both of them!
Tony G had such a good point telling Phil that he’s a professional poker player and should be paying attention to people, bad etiquette or not tony g plays to win
That Hellmuth fellow isn’t too bad. I hope he wins a hand one day
Wiggins run out is like the first 4 minute mile...classic! I watch it weekly...lol
Why I like Phill - he is just so emotion - love it...
People rarely make a 5 bet bluff. Very very rare. What in the world was Venessa even thinking putting in a 6 bet with J7 suited. What the hell.
I think my favorite moment in all of poker is this reveal by Vanessa because I love Tony G so much! Look at his face!
My favourite part was when Tony G had to tell Phil, "This is poker!" 🤣
Tony G and Phil are straight comedy
Phil has got to be the funnest player of all time to piss off and watch sulk. Everybody loves Phill. God, what an unlucky bastard. They all made him feel guilty for stealing the amateur's money, so he ran it four instead of three times, and even though Phil had him, he still lost. Utterly insane.
We can run it 10 times!
Love Tony G
You got a love it when Poker has a Buncha real personalities in it, this is gold ! ! ! Tony g, "Of course I looked", Then phil talking about etiquette.... oh I love it lol
I think Tony G is right. He has no obligation to tell Phil he hadn't looked. Phil was looking for an advantage by calling with ace jack thinking Tony went in blind, so he has no room to talk. You can try to talk another player into calling when you're strong so what's the difference?
Then asking someone if they looked at their hand should be bad etiquette because that's also influencing play. If Tony G is wrong, so is Phil.
@Jeramy Jay They kept their mouth shut coz they r not supposed to talk anything that can influence the hand if they r not in the hand.
& it was actually bad etiquitte from Tony G. But as we all know that he always tilt Phil anyhow he can so I guess it's excusable between them.
You dont play and it shows. You don't tell the table you raised blind, keep saying you're blind then admit you lied. It's just bad etiquette.
I always enjoy watching Doyle's face when Phil lays an egg.
Despite his reputation, I really don’t think Tony G is that bad. He chirps and needles but it always (to me) seems like he’s just acting fun, it never seems mean spirited
Say what you want about Phil but his call of his opponent's hand at 19:13 was pretty wild, man's poker knowledge is off the charts. Still love watching him tilt though. Trash talking is his kryptonite.
Idk if it was that crazy. He’s basically just guessed that fishman had a flush draw on the flop and then made a straight on the river which is why he went all in. There weren’t that many hands where fishman would play the way he did
That lay down of the aces was the most insane play I've ever seen, wow!
@mobeck sounds about right, yeah
I think there are structural reasons he did that -- I don't know the exact rules of this show, but I think he was ahead and only a few hands were probably left to play, and as the amateur player he needed to maintain his chip stack in order to leave with a profit, and he didn't want to risk his winnings and leave the show empty handed.
@Joshua Bowen for sure. besides, I think he was the blind anyway. It just happened to work out for him, but it’s objectively a bad play.
It was a horrible play. Laying down bullets is just insane
Never see it again.
Man i love to see phil having a bad time 🤣
Watching Phil sit back and arrogantly offer 4 times, before losing 3/4 of the pot...
Still my favourite moment in the big game.
The ego of this man.
@Jorge Yip Zhong The deeds of a man far outweigh his facial expressions.
@Alexander French I wasn't saying he was arrogant for thinking he had a good hand.
I was saying in all aspects of life he is arrogant and this hand shows what karma can cook up and serve, if you think you're the chef.
@Raukura Waihaha I saw it the same way too.
Oh man, seeing Tony G's face when Rousso out lucked his luck on the turn and had a knife go through him on the river was just... *chef's kiss and then watching Vanessa Selbst donk out against a real player lol.
OMFG Phil losing 3 out of 4 was the best thing I've watched all week. Feel bad for him, but damn..... LOL. He was so smug when he offered to run it 4 times..... HAH.
Folding the AA pre-flop is sick, even when you assume he did it because his smiling gave too much info of his strength.
To then flop Quad 6. Kill me.
Actually he folded the pocket AA because he told himself that he was folding every hand because of the big pot he took the previous hand which funny enough is the hand at 17:22 against Phil lol
I dont think that's why he folded. Think he was just trying to stay out of a big pot to book a win
I never tire of seeing Polk punt off stacks vs AA
I think I've seen phil win like 2 hands in my life
Last clip- my 2 favs... Tony when he wins, Phil when he loses. Love em both. That was jackpot!
Bring this show back I wanna be on it lol
Hellmuth just always distributing wealth. How can you not like the guy.
Tony g is hilarious. The bike speech is fantastic!
Phil gets the business during the big game
I think they need to start up The Big Game again. You can only watch Tony G tell Phil Hellmuth to get on his tandem bike with his coach so many times.
Tony g lying about seeing his hand is one of the greatest moments in poker history
Tony is GREAT so hilarious.
Phil : why did you lie ?
Tony : it’s poker
Me : 😂😂😂
I don’t care what any one says but I love Tony G he’s the man lol
Tony G is that villain we all want to be but don’t have the balls to.
@Dan Gerous You know, believe it or not, two or more people can have the same thought without "copying".
You copied the other guys comment that called him a villain.
@Anonymous Raw you must be fun at parties...
Honestly, Vanessa took that L with such grace
Tony G is the best. Period.
"Of course I lied! It's poker!" probably the greatest line I've ever heard considering being good at poker includes lying
Laughing at Phil one minute and then feeling sorry for him the next. I remember watching this live all those years ago. And I still think Tony G deserved a smack for his conduct. Lying is one thing but he didn’t need to be a total dick about it in the end!!!
Just the punishment Phil puts himself for its incredible lol
Phill had AJ himself. Not like it would make any difference in him calling pre flop if Tony actually hadn't looked at his cards. Good plays
I didn't think I could feel sorry for Hellmuth but that hand against Tony G made me do that..
Tony G- "it's over Phil. I think it's time to retire." 😂😂💀
Phil got what he deserved with that slow roll
Tony is the only player in poker allowed to have bad etiquette. 😂
20:23 This Hand is simply Insane
Phil always seems to lose or not play well when i watch him on the internet
love when hellmuth gets pissed and starts talking to the dealer about it
@Anonymous Raw thanks man!
@Kody Diduch he says that because if a club hit the river their would be 3 out their making a potential flush and it would have been easier for Phil to lay down his hand rather then an offsuit ten, regardless Phil said the exact hand he had which is brilliant but still called
doesn’t he still lose to a flush on that hand? why did he said he wouldn’t lose a nickle if a club got flipped?
27:00 Tony G just needling phil even more with double high fives around the table
That “of course I lied” absolutely cracked me up
TonyG was acting like a gentleman with Venessa.
This is the first time I've ever seen this show but it seems like Phil is like the villian character
Poor old Phil, loves to dish it, but not recieve it. His arrogance was his weakness in that last hand. Well played Tony....
