Episode 31

Today I am going to be speaking with one of poker’s superstars. Anyone with even a passing interest in poker during the last 20 years will certainly know who he is. 
 
My guest today is the one and only “poker brat” himself, Phil Hellmuth. 
Phil’s list of accomplishments and accolades in Poker is so long that it’s difficult to put it all together without missing something.
 
To name just some of the things that have made him one of the best poker players to ever take a seat at the table: 
– He is a member of the WSOP Poker Hall of Fame 
– In 1989 he became the youngest player to win the WSOP main event. A record that stood until 2008 when Peter Eastgate won the event.
– He holds the record for most WSOP cashes – 108
– He holds the record for most WSOP final tables – 52
– He has won more than $14 million in at the WSOP alone .
– He holds a record obliterating 15 championship bracelets.
 
Aside from appearing on TV during broadcasts of some of the tournaments he’s played in, he’s also appeared in many other televised games such as Poker After Dark, Hight Stakes Poker, and Late Night Poker. 
 
Just slightly outside of poker, Phil has also written several books including his autobiography, “Poker Brat”, several poker strategy books, and “Positivity: 8 Tips For Success”.

During my conversation with Phil, you’ll hear some of his best stories about a life playing poker and the places the game has taken him. 

He talks about the days when the only people who knew who professional poker players were were other professional poker players. He talks about what it was like to go from obscurity to a poker celebrity recognized all over the world, and, of course, what it’s like to carry the reputation of being “the poker brat”.
 
There are very few players that have played as long as Phil Helmuth has and remain active and successful in the game … And he shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. 
 
This episode was originally aired live on YouTube. If you didn’t catch the live broadcast, you’ll be glad you didn’t miss this chance to get a candid peek inside the world of one of poker’s living legends. 
 
I thank you once again for listening. And now, without any further ado, this is Phil Hellmuth on Chasing Poker Greatness.
