The Suite Blog >> The Poker Brat Hellion Deserves a Timeout

July 21, 2008 - Phil Hellmuth Jr. the Poker Brat is as bratty as they come. And while Hellmuth's nickname is just that - a nickname - I vote that it should be changed to the "Poker Dick". If you follow the World Series of Poker, you will recall that prior to Hellmuth's elimination, the star poker player was penalized for berating another player. In true Hellmuth style, the brat threw out a number of insults, calling his opponent a stupid idiot among other things.

And while everybody knows that Hellmuth is just trying to jinx his opponents and get inside their heads, there should be a line as to where and how that psychological manipulation takes place. I personally agree with a recent article posted on the Poker Listing's blog (a popular online poker portal), that summarized Hellmuth should be playing with more class and begged the question whether or not the brat is doing more to help or hurt the game of poker.

What's even more of a shame, is the fact that WSOP Commissioner, Jeffrey Pollack, let Hellmuth off the hook for his recent tirade. If it had been any other player, that would not have happened. The fact that Hellmuth is a star name is the only reason the penalty was removed. What were you thinking Pollack? Do you have kids of your own? That's how spoiled brat's become even more bratty and spoiled.

Apparently, he is now a product of sorts. Showing up to the WSOP, Hellmuth was sporting something like three hot chicks on each arm as he waltzed into the casino in his leather duds, while showing off for the camera and relishing in his celebrity "power". Honestly, I think Hellmuth should cool it down. I understand why he is doing what he is doing, but is it really necessary? There's no doubt that Hellmuth is an amazing poker player. But there are many other amazing poker players who don't rely on abusing other players to win. It's simply childish and uncalled for. It's time to show your class Phil Hellmuth Jr. We know you got it.
