Crash and Burn: Phil Hellmuth Flames Out Early on Day 1d of the 2007 WSOP
Phil Hellmuth arrived late in fashion and left early in shame on Day 1d of the 2007 World Series of Poker.
Showing up more than two and a half hours late by limo (in lieu of the race car he crashed) with a bevy of 11 girls by his side, Phil Hellmuth eventually made his way to his seat at the ESPN feature table looking more like Super Dave than a poker player in a ridiculously logo-covered NASCAR jumpsuit. Even more ridiculous, apparently, was the 11-time WSOP bracelet winner’s play at the table that left him shortstacked early on and eventually all-in with A-Q off against pocket tens. Hellmuth would pair his queen on the turn but his opponent rivered a flush to send the FORMER World Champion home to ice his stiff neck and swollen ego.
In related news, not many girls can pull of the ass-hanger jumpsuits the Hellmuth “Bracelettes” had on today and when we say “not many” we mean pretty much none of the girls we saw. Don’t get us wrong, we love the concept of the get-ups but only if the Bracelettes were built more like Keeley and Joanna and less like they were cramming 10 pounds of shit in a 5-pound bag. Sure that’s mean to say and they were more like 7 or 8 pounds of shit in a 5 pound bag, and really weren’t all that bad, if lumpy dumpies are your thing. Get a closer look after the jump along with more photos of Hellmuth’s grand entrance today at the 2007 WSOP.
