Nick Name: Poker Brat

July 16, 1964
Playing at: Ultimate Bet

Phil Hellmuth

Phil Hellmuth, Jr. is a professional poker player who holds the record of 11 bracelets for the World Series of Poker. He has been the notorious whining player because people will always hear him complain, especially when he has bad beats. But is this the only trademark of Phil Hellmuth? I don’t think so. Here is a look at Phil Hellmuth, Jr.

Getting to Know Phil Hellmuth

Phil Hellmuth, Jr. is currently residing in Palo Alto, California. This American professional poker player was born in Madison, Wisconsin and attended college at the University of Wisconsin. He wasn’t able to finish his college course because he focused his attention in playing professional poker. He married Katherine, who is also a professional poker player, and has two children.

He is known to be good in playing Texas Hold’em. He is the best Texas Hold’em player of all time. Nothing compares to his excellent playing style. He mastered his strategies in Texas Hold’em and revolutionized the way this game is played. But a lot of people still recognize him for his poor personality, especially during tournaments. He used to make unnecessary comments whenever his opponents beat his hand. On one tournament, Phil Hellmuth stated that if luck was not a factor of poker, he would definitely have won every tournament. Because of these comments, Phil Hellmuth, Jr. was branded as the “Poker Brat.”

Accomplishments in Poker 

Even though, Phil Hellmuth, Jr. is considered as the “poker brat,” he is one of the best poker players in history. He is the youngest player who won the title in the 1989 World Series of Poker at the age of 24. After his first bracelet, Phil continued to hone his skills and entered in various tournaments. For 19 years, Phil Hellmuth has collected 11 bracelets from WSOP. He is the only professional poker player who holds the record of having had 11 bracelets, ranking first against the Legendary Doyle Brunson with 10 bracelets.

Today, Phil Hellmuth, Jr. is traveling from tournaments to tournaments all over the world. He is currently the spokesperson of Ultimate Bet. Phil Hellmuth has also written the book entitled “Playing Pokers like the Pros.”

A lot of people don’t really understand the personality of Phil Hellmuth, Jr. especially when he is playing. But outside the poker room, Phil is really a very nice and dedicated person. Maybe the reason why he always whines is because he doesn’t settle for less. He aims to become the best, and it’s evidenced by all the accomplishments he made in his poker career.
