The Phil Hellmuth of Las Vegas 2-5 No Limit Holdem Live Games

According to the Phil Hellmuth of Las Vegas 2-5 No Limit Holdem:

"In all of Las Vegas. I haven’t met a $2/$5 player better than me..."

"...they all suck. Sometimes when I tell them a bluff that goes awry, they’re quick to harp on how poorly I played the hand — which pisses me off because, in fact, I’m more aware of opponents’ ranges and tendencies than they are. They want to seem like they’re contributing to poker conversation with me because I’m a poker god. And they’re just poker minions."

Apparently whenever he gets to the river his opponents never have better than one pair. Pretty special ability that.

He's a good kid I'm personal friends with him. And he does better than all the other 2-5 players without a doubt.

Weird that no one else tried that.

Though he has a lot of talent upstairs, his main talent is below his waist. And i'm not talking about his kung fu kick
