25 thoughts on “Poker Jerks: Tony G angle shooting Phil Hellmuth

  1. I would have decked him in the face after he mocked him off the set. Phil
    Hellmuth (although I am not a huge fan of) could easily afford the law suit
    Tony G might put on him for assault. Well worth it, and would give good
    poker publicity. 

  2. What I find the most interesting here is how none of the other Poker pros
    has ever needed to do that stunt that Tony G did here, in order to stay on
    top of things. You don’t need to sacrifice the respect people have of you,
    just so that you can win a hand of poker. Tony G is technically right about
    poker being a game of deception, but the etiquette that Phil’s talking
    about has to do with the fact that Poker is still a sport and not a matter
    of bringing everyone else down in order to glorify yourself. Although
    people should be accustomed to Tony G doing exactly that, by now.

    Tony G is and will always be a douchebag, and Phil’s big mistake was to
    assume otherwise and take anything Tony G ever says as serious.

  3. if phil could just learn to laugh at himself and not take things so
    seriously, everybody wouldn’t be out to get him all the time. but he squats
    down in the fetal position every time somebody jabs him really hard and
    never recovers.

  4. Although poker is about lying, still not a cool move by Tony G. PH may rant
    after loosing, usually complain too much about luck and all that, but I
    still believe he is right this time. When you claim you haven’t seen your
    cards and even involve other players in the table to support you, I just
    find it wrong. The way I see it, it’s like Phil said, there are some
    unwritten rules in poker that everyone should follow, especially in a
    televised poker show.

  5. PH is so stupid, never believe a guy at the poker table… yesterday
    someone putted half my stack in the pot while i had KJ on a A K 7 6 3
    board, and this guy was telling me “i have to pair` i have 2 pair“, then
    i called the guy, and he instant mucked his hand :)

  6. I’m guessing Joe was just very uncomfortable, knowing that Tony had lied,
    and not knowing what he should do about it. But it’s not really his
    responsibility to try to have a good poker face. You’re right, the way Joe
    acted after looking was odd, and I think Phil should’ve been able to read
    something off that.

  7. Hellmuth seriously just cries about everything. The entire premise of poker
    is lying about what you have. He’s just a big baby, who should have known
    better.

  8. joe needs to shut up whether or not tony is lying.. but the way joe acted
    after looking was very odd to me.

  9. I agree it’s horrible ettiquette, but Phil… COME ON, it’s TONY! That’s
    like a politician telling you he never lies… You’re an idiot believing
    his words.

  10. When Phil Hellmuth tells someone his behaviour is bad, it should make
    everyone wonder, if this person is the devil or worse.

  11. Gotta give Phil credit. If that was me and he was walking behind me saying
    that I would have knocked the taste out of his mouth after angling me like
    that.

  12. Taking a poll: At 1:10, should Joe have said anything? Tony was obviously
    using him to validate his claim that he hadn’t looked, and everybody seemed
    to agree that Tony was wrong to lie. So could/should Joe have at least said
    “it’s a strong hand”? Sub-question, if you were Phil, would you have read
    into the fact that Joe didn’t say anything? If Tony’s hand was crap, Joe
    would’ve been likely to say “he definitely didn’t look.”

  13. Tony G is just awesome. Uses his bullshit artist skills in poker. Thats
    what makes a good poker player.

  14. No one is arguing that Phil does not have his faults and may not be
    breaking etiquette when he does his rants. That is a separate argument from
    what Tony G did, however. Phil’s bad manners are not the equivalent to
    someone (playing at these high stakes) who is a professional blatantly
    lying. That would be like saying even though I was drunk driving and killed
    a guy, you have no right to bad mouth me because you have had a number of
    jay walking tickets.

  15. That’s why it’s funny! 🙂 In other videos, when Tony’s a jerk to anyone
    else, it makes me cringe. But this is hilarious, because Phil’s getting a
    taste of his own medicine. And he’s trying to take the high road and not
    blow up so he looks like the victim, but anyone who has seen him play knows
    otherwise.

  16. no one else thinks Phil is a hypocrite talking about etiquette? when he has
    all these blow ups, swearing and bad mouthing others plays, them getting
    lucky etc… (the blow ups are hilarious and awesome though)

  17. 3:46 I love how Tony has trouble pronouncing “etiquette,” like it’s a word
    he hasn’t heard before 🙂

  18. hahahaaaa….tony is the only one who can piss phil off without any
    backfire… it’s poker baby…hahaaa…

  19. Wow ok so like most youtuber’s, we all have seen phill call players idiots
    for beating him. I even have a dream about going to the wsop and beating
    phill with 2, 7 just to see the look on his face losing, but now that ive
    seen him trolled to death by this guy, i almost feel bad for him and i
    don’t know why?!
