Yeah, him and Colman doing that reminds me of all the idiots who can't help themselves and slap bumper stickers or window stickers on the back of their car to "share" their views.

Not that Hellmuth isn't a shameless self-promoter, but F Busquet and his stupid eyebrows

I'm not sure when the poker world decided when this ass hat says something it matters, The worse poker commentary is when this results oriented idiot bumps his gums.

The comments and reaction on Twitter are worth a look.

Add Norman Chad to the list as well. He was very ungracious about Phil's latest WSOP braclet on twitter. When I responded and told Chad he was a dipstick, always has been and always will be, he promptly black listed me from his twitter account. As I said Chad, once a dipstick, always a dipstick.

Re: Olivier busquet calls out Phil hellmuth on Twitter

So much hate for Ph.. Smh. If he didn't thank his sponsors I feel like that would be an -EV move. For some many ppl who "hate" this guy people surely follow his every move veeeeeeery closely. If I won my 14 wsop bracelet I would be thanking everyone. Including the valet guy at the rio!

Crazy that he would choose to opt out of the insights of some rando instead of engaging with him.

Has anyone reminded him of the Free palestine shirt he and Coleman wore on twitter yet...this guy is beyond DB to insult PH thanking his sponsor at a bracelet ceremony.

I think he believes that by wearing that shirt he is beyond criticism for anything he says.

Aria pays Phil money for representing their brand. Said money supports Phil and his family. Why shouldn't he thank them? Of all the things Olivier can ***** about he chooses this? Pretty funny in my opinion.

Re: Olivier busquet calls out Phil hellmuth on Twitter

What tilts me most about this situation is not that he is upset about PH thanking a sponsor, but that he is aggressive and douchey towards anyone who doesn't agree with him. He comes off like a really big ass-hat.

And for the record, PH was completely ok to thank a sponsor. Not even a question. I almost feel like PH would come off worse if he didn't thank his sponsor when a mic moment presents itself after a win.

Re: Olivier busquet calls out Phil hellmuth on Twitter

Politics, abortion and religion are some of the topics best left out of poker discussions. Oliver's political views may be shared by some, not me. by wearing that shirt, I lost respect for him. Why, because I don't share his opinion on that. I still think he's a great poker player. Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods avoided comments on politics, and I'm sure their agents advised them to.

Oliver is probably a world class poker player. does he have any sponsors? if not, he might google his name the way a sponsor would before signing him. When a sponsor see's his tee shirt choices, or twitter jabber, it's not going to help. He probably wins enough from poker that he doesn't care though.

100% agree that phil should plug his sponsor. I'll never get a sponsor because I suck at poker.

What strikes me about Oliver is that he's a world-class thinker and commentator about the game but that he's unable to apply his abilities while actually playing. It might be the pressure of the moment, emotional IQ, etc... Being a thoughtful person I imagine Oliver knows this all too well and it tilts him to see players of lesser ability consistently perform much better than him, thus he lashes out at those players any chance he gets.

Thanking sponsors on your acceptance speech can only benefit the game.
But wearing political shirt on televised final table can only bring harm to the game.

Re: Olivier busquet calls out Phil hellmuth on Twitter

He says its "inappropriate and disrespectful" to thank sponsors after a tourney win, but has no issue when MrGreen walks away from an interview after winning the biggest tourney ever,,,not to mention the whole free palestine farce. Seems he is more concerned about his personal interests, than poker.

Not to mention

FWIW, Dan Colman has entered the debate. He's allowed to express an opinion, y'know.

Re: Olivier busquet calls out Phil hellmuth on Twitter

If you consider he thought there was no need for Colman to thank Ceasars or ESPN for putting on the One Drop, then it figures he couldnt understand how anyone would want to thank another casino. The PR firm of Busquet and Colman sure know how to make people totally unlikeable to the public.

Re: Olivier busquet calls out Phil hellmuth on Twitter

Let's be honest with ourselves. Olivier makes millions of dollars at the poker tables. The majority of people playing poker are losing players. There's more people losing money that probably shouldn't be risking it. Not everyone are hobbyist with 6 figure incomes. Funnel vision.

Come on.

Re: Olivier busquet calls out Phil hellmuth on Twitter

Olivier has to be a very big douche to be able to get so much sympathy and support for PH on NVG.

How is thanking people that give you money to represent them when playing poker wrong/inappropriate when you win a poker tournament?

Oliver and DC appear to be smart guys that think they are actually far smarter than they are. You're good at poker boys, but your judgment in other areas is very poor. Stop smelling your own farts.

Re: Olivier busquet calls out Phil hellmuth on Twitter

olivier and colman . their day will come when intellectual banter and all the $$$ in the world will be voided. Only then shall both have to come to terms with issues that will make them forget their foolish youth. Humbleness is awaiting some with a black jack ,lurking around a corner. Being a moronic genius ,unable to learn the simplest lessons of LIFE ,is I assure you a ticket for a journey you do not want to partake. Take heed, for the smarter you are, the haughtier you are, the harder the lessons shall be,alas, long after you forget the bill is due ,no less. good luck. today, tell a dealer he done good if he did, help a old lady across the street, stop a man from beating his dog. change your tune o haughty one.
