All kinds of explosive conflicts can occur at a poker table, but when it's two of the most notorious bad boys of poker - well, things can go nuclear.
Most recently, there's a big buzz around the growing Hellmuth/Devilfish feud that is developing into a beast of a conflict.
It all started when Hellmuth got his trip tens cracked by Devilfish's big draw in the $5k PLO/8 event.
Hellmuth wasn't amused as PL.com's Jason Phillips reported in our live coverage.
"What the f*** are you doing, Fish?" - A furious Phil Hellmuth asked Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott after being eliminated in a whirlwind pot.
"This mother f***er just called 80k with that?"
Devilfish just laughed at Hellmuth's childish reaction to the beat - but later on he wasn't laughing.
Hellmuth apparently turned up at the PLO/8 final table where he continued to harangue Devilfish as he played out for the bracelet.
Devilfish was not impressed by this lack of professionalism and Hellmuth's weak attempts to reconcile the pair have fallen on stony ground.
This was their exchange earlier in the $5k PLO event, as reported by PokerListings reporter Jackie Witt.
Hellmuth continues to chide Devilfish for the bad beat he suffered in Saturday night's PLO/8 tournament. Devilfish, meanwhile, doesn't seem to be in the mood for reconciling.
"I'm just saying you owe me a bottle or two of Cristal after the beat you put on me, Fishy," Hellmuth said.
"I might stick a bottle up your ass," Devilfish said, causing the entire table to erupt into laughter.
This feud looks like it might be set to run and run.
