Hellmuth arrives at WSOP dressed as fighter

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Jul 08, 2010 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

Phil Hellmuth’s entrance –typically a couple hours late– is turning out to be a cringe-worthy moment every year at the World Series of Poker, and it was no different in 2010 as the 11-time WSOP bracelet winner showed up wearing a long satin fighter’s robe with the UB logo prominently displayed, along with MMA gloves. His entourage this time around included the usual scantily clad women, but also the voice of the UFC Bruce Buffer, who contributed to the spectacle by announcing Hellmuth’s arrival.

In the past Hellmuth has arrived dressed as a racecar driver –where he famously crashed the car the day before and also as Julius Caesar and Gen. George Patton.

Hellmuth’s WSOP garb, and shenanigans, has sparked a small Twitter war between himself and Doyle Brunson. Doyle started the mini-controversy with the following Tweet: “I’m glad I’m not playing today so I won’t see Hellmuth make a fool out of himself with his entrance. I can’t help thinking it’s terrible”. The Twitter comment apparently hurt Hellmuth’s feelings enough that he called Texas Dolly looking for an apology –which he says he received. However, Doyle was back on Twitter soon after, and even though there is a “sorry” in there he seemed anything but apologetic: “got scolded by PH for my last tweet. Sorry Phil, but I got 103 responses. 99 agreed with me, 4 didn’t. I love you anyway, gl in the WSOP.”
