This week on PokerGO it was time for another epic clash of personalities, with Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth headlining “Whine and Cheese” on Poker After Dark. Hellmuth and Negreanu tangled in this $50/$100 cash game with a $200 ante along with a cast of characters that included Tom Marchese, Dan O’Brien, Justin Young and Jeremy Ausmus. You can rewatch that entire broadcast right here, but if you’re looking to dive into the past with us to dig up some of Hellmuth’s best moments on TV, you should bookmark this article and enjoy all the gems from the PokerGO library.
Is the personality at the table truly all that Phil Hellmuth is about? You won’t know until you check out some of the PokerGO Originals in which ‘The Poker Brat’ talks about his life story. Start your Phil Hellmuth binge with the Pokerography episode about his life that goes into his childhood in Wisconsin, the relationship with his parents, meeting his wife, and the first-hand account of winning the 1989 WSOP Main Event victory making him the youngest Main Event winner ever, a record that would stand for nearly 20 years until when Peter Eastgate won it all in 2008.
In the Super High Roller Club hosted by Ali Nejad, off-the-felt exploits of some of the biggest personalities in the game including Daniel Negreanu, Farah Galfond, Brandon Adams, and Antonio Esfandiari are explored. On the episode with Hellmuth, Nejad takes him to a specialty sunglasses store in New York City to dive into the champ’s obsession with wearing black and gold. Hellmuth not only tells the story of how those colors became almost synonymous with his appearance, but he also dives into some more personal stories.
As one of the biggest names in the game, Hellmuth also got the invite for Drea Renee’s massage chair and an episode of “Deep Issues.” As always, Drea brings a new angle and spicy dilemmas that bring even Hellmuth out of his comfort zone. Want to know what a night of partying with Hellmuth looks like? Or what him and his wife like to do in their spare time? You must watch this episode of Deep Issues.
Now that you know whether ‘The Poker Brat’ is an act or not, make sure to check out some actual acting from the man with $22 million in career tournament earnings. The PokerGO Original short form comedic series ‘Poker Nights’ brought Hollywood flair to the game of poker with Chris Parnell headlining.
Parnell, known from Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, and voices for Archer and Rick and Morty, hosts a home game on “Poker Nights” where all sort of shenanigans unfolds. On one of the nights, none other than Mister World Champion himself shows up, and hilarity ensues. Watch the episode featuring Hellmuth right here on PokerGO.
We’re closing out this week’s Binge with some more content on the light-hearted side, as one of Hellmuth’s good friends challenges him to a different kind of H.O.R.S.E. during the 2017 Super High Roller Bowl. Who’s got the upper hand? The 14-time bracelet winner of Uncle Ron?
