The Poker Brat
Hellmuth is also known as the Poker Brat for his fiery temper and outspoken and quite frankly, often pretty bad behaviour at the tables. He has been known to storm out of televised tournaments, and is no stranger to having his opinions heard. He is however well liked on the scene and is invited regularly to appear in poker TV shows. He’s written several books including Phil Hellmuth’s Texas Holdem, Bad Beats and Lucky Draws and Play Poker Like the Pros with his autobiography called Poker Brat. With 100 cashes, 49 final tables and 13 bracelets Phil Hellmuth is up there with the biggest and the best players that have ever graced the tables and there’s sure to be much more to come from the Poker Brat!
