On the night of Friday to Saturday, Phil Hellmuth paid for his carpet with in a $25,000 tournament. The worst hand ever played by the Poker Brat?
Some will say that “it’s won, it’s well done” and will say that the WSOP bracelet record holder took the opportunity to finish runner-up of an event won by Erik Seidel. Others will pillory Hellmuth and see justification for an atrocious level!
On the relevant hand, the blinds are 30,000 – 60,000 (60,000) and Alex Foxen min-raise to 125,000 with 3.2 million. Hellmuth 3-bet 350,000 chips with 600,000 behind…with . The former GPI No. 1 moved all-in…and Hellmuth called for 540,000 more chips. In gamble mode!
Something to shock PokerGO commentators and then poker enthusiasts on social networks.
There is the hand of Will Smith and that of Phil Hellmuth this weekend… Jason Koon therefore tried to justify the use of White Magic by Hellmuth. “Here are the reasons why the call with Q4o is not as bad as we think”, explained Jason Koon while dangling 6 technical tweets.
Jason Koon only did two since he followed up with a “I’m kidding”…
1/6 a thread. Here is why the @phil_hellmuth 3b and call off with Q4o wasn’t as bad as it looks.
“He said he wanted to play for the win…Buddy if you want to play for the win the best is to stay at home”, commented Lex Veldhuis.
‘Guess I better play to win’ he says hahaha. Mate, if you want to play to win you’d best just stay home. https://t.co/MVOcsVQU49
Kevin Martin updated his hand list to 3-bet call for value.
Hey guys I found @phil_hellmuth’s 3 bet call range for value. https://t.co/LJr0VCbO98
Ben “Spraggy” Spragg explains that he will start playing Q4o like everyone else. Skip the 72o!
Big buddy of Hellmuth, Jonathan Little did not dare to chamber his friend and it is to be satisfied with a version of “it’s won it’s well done”.
Multiple people have asked me to analyze this hand. It is simple. Trips > Two-Pair https://t.co/o3P7fbgpSr
In October 2010, Phil Galfond had eExplained at length that Hellmuth’s unconventional style didn’t mean he was bad or good, but that there was probably something to be learned from a player you don’t understand. His new 4-page text on why the call is good is sarcastic on a delicious level…
We’ve been here before. @phil_hellmuth makes a play that looks ridiculous, and all the poker fans at home – includi… https://t.co/ti2DmmmD0y
Other players have noted that Phil Helluth has the odds to pay if he puts his opponent on AK! More than the call, they explain that it is probably the 3-bet that is horrible…
@PokerGO Wasn’t too bad of a call. I know many pros would agree. He had to call 580k into 1.35 million. He put 380k… https://t.co/HDSt6Ky1wt
@PokerGO The call is actually kinda ok, it’s the 3 bet that’s terrible. He 3 bet WAY too much with the wrong kind o… https://t.co/MK8QlXpFdJ
On his side Jason Calacanis probably found a good reason for Philou’s call… Hellmuth is advertising his home game and recruiting players who think they are dealing with the partridge of the year!
Whitemagic!!! Go @phil_hellmuth go!!! This move just made him $1.7m in the home game ## https://t.co/KP1r4lTPhv
“Sometimes I feel rusty and wonder if I still have an edge in poker. Reading Twitter today I realize that this is not the day I’m going to feel that way,” he laughed. Justin Bonomo.

Landon Tice he “blessed those who use a range chart to justify such a neat way of burning money”.
People saying poker is dead while using an “equity chart” to justify a massively torching Q4o call.
Even Hellmuth ended up getting into the conversation…with “an official announcement.” Playfully, the Poker Brat has decided to add Q4o to its chart of its ten best hands.
Official announcement: after a lot of debate, reflection, and careful study, I have decided to add Q-4 off suit to… https://t.co/lvSk8oa6eq
Foxen played him the great professional. Poker Face after the bad move (he also finished 3rd anyway, editor’s note)… but a little less humor on the networks afterwards.
“I had turned off my Twitter for a long time (especially following its rather questionable and disputed positions on COVID-19, editor’s note) and I logged on to see people defending Q4o and 3-bet / call with 16 blinds without irony“, he posted with a GIF leaving no doubt about his activity on the networks in the coming weeks…
Had been on a twitter hiatus and then log on today to see people non ironically defending Q4o as a reasonable 3b/c… https://t.co/poW9oRzDZg
