For some reason I like him and generally find him pretty hilarious.

It's just amazing how someone can have THAT many issues and ALWAYS make sure to bring every single one of them to the table.

He is just an unreal character I guess who I find entertaining.

Does anyone else get the feeling all the players are just bored outa damn mind? I mean Hellmuth is taking a nap at the table and everyone else is just sitting there going through the motions while Gordon talks about some sports crap. You know what would liven this game up? a couple of rounds of Russian Roulet!!

Harman: Phil, if you wern't a poker player, what would you have become?

Lederer: In other words, what do you wanna be when you grow up?

I laughed my ass off.

Kind of disappointing that Chris Ferguson can't lighten up at all for this show. He's still in his full on "game mode", totally motionless and silent, and always taking his pre-alloted time to make an action.

At least Ivey was able to get a word out of him.

"I didn't see 'em".

Hellmuth's antics against donks are rather funny, as his criticism's are usually valid.

When made against non donks though they just come across so ignorant and make him look so stupid.

I think he thinks that his comments will somehow manipulate his opponents into playing differently. He clearly doesn't like people raising too much after he limps, so he makes a big production, accusing them of playing wild, hoping it will stop them from doing so? Or he claims to be limping with small pairs as an attempt to trap to scare them into not doing so?

I think he thinks he can manipulate them into playing a style he likes more... but I highly doubt that it works. Hell I'd want to reraise him even more after I realized he was doing this.

I think he just likes the sound of his own voice.

Hellmuth used to be entertaining. But then he just kept using the same schtick, over and over again. It's irritating because he always says the same stuff, acts the same way. He's always criticizing others, saying that he's the best hold 'em player in the world, yet somehow he's always on the shortstack.

I'm actually surprised he hasn't gotten sick of himself yet.
