Hellmuth On WSJ & CNBC

Hellmuth was recently covered by the Wall Street Journal and also appeared on CNBC’s ‘PowerLunch’ to discuss his 25 plus years as a top professional poker player and to share insights of what readers can expect from ‘The Poker Brat’. The Hendon Mob lists his total career prize money to be above $21 million and ranks him in 8th place on the all time money list.

The Poker Brat not only takes a look at his professional poker career but also gets very candid about his personal life. Hellmuth stated that he wanted to open up to his readers and show them the highs and lows that he has gone through in life. He also opens up about the issues he has faced in his marriage and how he and his wife managed to work through them and build a successful marriage.

Promotional Campaign

The Poker Brat will make a great read for amateur poker players as well professional poker players as Hellmuth discusses quite a few mental conditioning strategies that are important in building a successful mindset. One of those is ‘the power of words’ and making sure that one’s vocabulary does not contract negative words as they have a strong impact on a player’s performance and final outcome. Hellmuth also says in his book that the top poker pros can also make a ton of money in other areas outside of playing poker and discusses a few of them.

Hellmuth also went on Doug Polk’s podcast and spent close to two hours discussing his life and promoting the book. The hall of famer is also schedule to deliver a speech at SXSW 2018, which is a global event that brings together the top professional and creative minds in the IT, music and media industry.
