WSOP Tweet Relief: Tears of a Hellmuth
There are so very many reasons to appreciate the level of entertainment Phil Hellmuth brings to the poker world.
The epic blowups. The 12 bracelets. The passionate fan base. The emo interviews. The celebrity name-dropping. His childlike exuberance. The odd-length leather jackets.
So, so many reasons.
Hard to top the tweets about crying in the parking lot, though.
You also have to love a guy who can push through the pain and thumb out a promo for his poker app.
God bless Phil Hellmuth, everyone:

Reading that Hellmuth tweet about him crying that he's virtually out of the $50k event has to be the most tilting tweet ever.— DJ MacKinnon (@djmacjr) June 27, 2012
