Phil Hellmuth Lambasted on Twitter For Late Arrival, Donk Play at SHRB

May 4, 2018

If you've ever entertained the idea of having a piece of Phil Hellmuth in a Super High Roller, it might be a better idea to invest your money elsewhere - at least that's the conclusion that many have drawn from Day 1 of the Super High Roller Bowl.

Showing up a few hours late despite reportedly bedding down at the Aria nearby seemed to rub many players and fans the wrong way. Which is understandable considering the stakes involved - $300,000 buy-in and $14.4 million in prize money, with $5 million up top.

In addition to his extreme tardiness, the "Poker Brat" promptly lost a good chunk of his chip stack soon after taking his seat. He busted out on Day 1 of the 4-day tournament, causing poker fans and players to continue criticizing Hellmuth with regard to his late arrival, poor play, and the fact that a large percentage of his buy-in was covered by backers.

Leading the way were Scott Seiver and Shaun Deeb:
