    Robert Sanchez at my charity poker tournament. Impressive guy!  He was one of the first six members of “Delta Force!”
    When I’m on the microphone I call Robert “Tony Stark” because he owns a defense contractor company called Hexadyne…

  • All in Magazine’s Hand of the Year

    Date: 2014.02.03 | Category: Poker | By: Phil Hellmuth   

    All In Magazine named my showdown with Mike “The Mouth” Matusow their Hand of the Year for 2013!  Check out the full article below, via All In.

    Matusow vs. Hellmuth, NBC Heads-Up Championship

    BY ERIC RASKIN

    NBC couldn’t have asked for anything more. On one side of the final table at the first post-Black-Friday edition of the National Heads-Up Poker Championship sat Phil Hellmuth, the number one ratings driver of the TV-poker era. On the other side sat Mike Matusow, Hellmuth’s greatest rival in the polarizing-personality race. These are two undisputed superstars of the game, guys you either love to hate or love to love, both of whom happen to love to talk.

    2013_Awards_MatusowThe best-of-three match between the old friends was guaranteed to entertain. What wasn’t guaranteed was that it would be a classic battle that would end with a suckout for the ages.

    Matusow held nearly a 3-to-1 chip lead when he was dealt 8-4 of diamonds and opened for a min-raise to 32K. Hellmuth called with K-10, then checked in the dark. The flop hit both men with blunt force: JsKd2d. Phil had top pair, Mikey a flush draw. Matusow fired 30K, and Hellmuth called. The turn was the six of spades, changing nothing. Hellmuth checked, and Matusow tried to take it down with a bet of 105K.

  • Wall Street Poker Showdown

    Date: 2014.01.30 | Category: Philanthropy, Poker | By: Phil Hellmuth   

    The 2014 Aces & Angels “Salute the Troops Wall Street Poker Showdown” was a huge success, and I was honored to MC such a great evening of poker.  The event raises money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, Wall Street Warfighters Foundation, and the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.  Hundreds of Wall Street traders, bankers and analysts gathered in the Prince George Ballroom in NYC’s Financial District to play for a great cause, and the top finisher won a seat at this year’s WSOP!

    Check out a few of my favorite photos from the event, courtesy of Business Insider:
