Phil Hellmiuth, Professional Poker Player
Phil Hellmuth, Jr. is the greatest
poker player in the world.  And if you
don’t believe it, just ask him.  
Hellmuth reached a new milestone
today when he became the first
player in World Series of Poker
history to reach “50” in-the-money
finishes.  With his 67th-place finish
in an colossal field of 2,776 entries
in the $1,500 buy-in no-limit hold’
em event, Hellmuth eclipsed two
longtime poker rivals – Berry
Johnston and Men “the Master”
Nguyen, each currently with “49”
Phil Hellmuth has clearly become an icon in a game full of icons.  The 1989
World Series of Poker Champion has won a total of nine gold bracelets in his
illustrious 17-year poker career.  Incredibly, all of his WSOP wins are in the
game of hold’em – the most of any player.  Through Event #3 at the WSOP,
rankings are as follows:

Phil Hellmuth, Jr.                        
Berry Johnston                                
Men “the Master” Nguyen        
T.J. Cloutier

I did three or four interviews, went by the UltimateBet lounge and signed
autographs and took pictures for what seemed like an hour.  Then I rushed
over to the Caesars Palace gym, and worked out for a hard hour.  I joined
both of my agents (Brian and Jim) for dinner at "Fix" at the Bellagio.  Fix is
really hot—the food is great--and you will always catch poker players eating
there.  An agent from "Light" nightclub came by and told me he would hold a
VIP table for me, "Just in case I showed up."  I told him that they wouldn't let
me wear my hat and sunglasses in there in the past year when I wore them
religiously; and that I might not ever go back there again.  Especially
considering that U2's Bono was looking to meet me, and I knew he would be
there one night.  I did talk to the owner for awhile that day and he is nice,
but other clubs like "Pure" and "Tao" let me wear my stuff, even if it is
against policy (they like me, or they like my money!).  In any case, I won
$2,000 at the high limit slots.
