As Phil Hellmuth prepares to challenge for a record 17th WSOP bracelet, we found this interesting clip from just after he extended his record haul to 16 wins at poker’s most prestigious festival.

The poker legend talks about his career, including his infamous tantrums, and also how he lost a whopping $536,000 in a single night on GGPoker when running pocket kings in aces twice.

He mentions how he has played poker with US presidents and Hollywood stars, and that Elon Musk even asked him for a poker lesson while hanging out.

You’ve got to hand it to Hellmuth, he’s been there and done it all in a poker sense, reminding us of his goal to be “remembered as the greatest poker player of all time.” Time will tell on that score!
