Hello,

In the build-up the the 100 Billionth Hand been dealt at PokerStars they have released a series of 'Greatest Hands' on their You Tube channel.

This one features Phil Hellmuth and is one of the strangest ever, what do you think of the hand? But is it one of the greatest ever? You can vote above just for fun or check out the 'ZOOM & BOOM' promotion.

Already voted for this one.

I dont hate or love Phil but I think he got what he deserved here for the slow roll.

I didn't vote for this one but it still cracks me up... the look of disgust on phils face is just so funny even though he brought it on himself.

I have mixed feelings about that one. It is very funny and I can feel Phil's pain. Judging by interviews I have seen Phil is not a bad guy away from the felt, he just plays with a lot of passion and tilts easily. For some reason he shows a certain amount of immaturity when playing poker. That is why TV producers love him.

Haha awesome clip. I think Hellmuth didn't understand why everyone was rooting for the loose cannon. At least not during the hand. Looked like he was taking it personally LOL.

Serious question: Where is the slow roll? His all-in was called and 1 second later he says trip nines then flips??? Was the issue that he didn't instantly shove all-in? Might as well hand his cards over to the loose cannon for inspection. Hellmuth doesn't have the nuts so he is allowed a few moments to think over an all-in move before he makes it in my opinion. What am I missing here?

I think the general consensus was just that the cannon was committed and Phil took unnecessarily long, he knew he had the best hand and the cannon was obviously snapping (which he did). Epic hand, I love Hellmuth but he def got some just desserts here

Great entertainment, but not greatest TV hand in my opinion.
Wiggins is the kind of cocky but awful player you would welcome to any game, yet because of classic Helmuthian behaviour the poker gods still favour the fish.

Given it is in the top 3 I wouldn't be surprised if this is the one picked for Zoom and Boom.

Didn't notice the cannon was committed to the point that neither player is ever folding. I see the problem with his play now.

Very Generous of Phil to allow Wiggins to run it 4 times. ( The good side of Phil showing )

It's a nice hand but not really "the greatest"

Personally I don't like Phil at all because of his way of acting. He seem's like a nice guy away from the table but at the table.... He's not emotional, he's simply mean.

While it was nice of Phil to suggest to run it four times he didn't look particular nice or filled with compassion when he made the suggestion. Paranoid me is thinking he did it to gloat, being clearly ahead.

He's an exceptional player, when he doesn't implode, which makes it even sadder. He should be someone you cheered for, someone you wanted to win but but

I even watched him try and take back his All-In after he lost (on youtube).... enough said

Oh man... couldn't even watch the whole thing. Can't take the constant babbling noises of Hellmuth and Tony G. It's like some sort of hideous and bizarre mating song.

People lie all the time about their hands. Sad how Tony G. can't understand the distinction between that and what he did. Just because you don't technically break any rules does not make it OK. It's television so I don't really want to judge people for how they act, but wow...

Phil can only blame himself though. Tony G. did make one good point, Phil is a pro and he should have known if Tony had looked at his cards or not. I can understand why Phil believed Tony. It is hard for normal/mentally healthy people to understand how someone could stoop that low.

ugh Tony G might be right about the pro thing but i also agree this is bad etiquette,
Tony G became a big old hypocrite in my eyes, and used to hate Phil but i wonder why people think he is mean dont confuse mean with arrogance.


don't beg for things do it yourself or else you won't get anything
