IamA Phil Hellmuth Jr. aka the Poker Brat and I've won $18 million playing poker AMA!
(My first post was shut down for starting too early. Let’s try this again!)
Hi everyone, I’m Phil Hellmuth Jr. Some say that I’m the best live tournament poker player of all time, with more than $18 million in winnings. With a record 14 WSOP bracelets and 52 WSOP final tables, I was inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in 2007. I was nicknamed “Poker Brat” for my tableside antics, and I’m also a bestselling author with my own clothing line, poker app and multiple television and movie gigs. I enjoy giving to charity, especially on behalf of fallen policeman and fireman, and I often donate my WSOP bracelets.
One interesting thing about me that most people don’t know is that I was friends with Chris Farley, when we were growing up in Wisconsin. And, when I started out in poker, I did so badly that I had to go back to Wisconsin to do farm work to earn a new bankroll.
I’m also now a partner with Poker Central, the world's only 24/7 poker TV channel that’s going live on October 1st. So now’s your chance to Ask Me Anything!
I will begin answering questions here now through September 20th.
EDIT: I'm all done for the night. Thanks for all the questions everyone! I'll be stopping by periodically between now and Sunday to answer more, so keep them coming.
