What Phil Hellmuth is Up To

By: Antenor Contois

Captain of Team Americas in the upcoming World Series of Poker Europe, Phil Hellmuth, gave an interview this past week in which he reviled the other activities that keep him busy as well as some of his feelings about the World Series of Poker event that recently happened.

Phil Hellmuth is a comunicator. This quality of him is shown being the he captain of this year's WSOPE but also a being a writer and producing instructional videos. He his currently writing a biography call Poker Brat and another book that is a sort of self help on how to achieve great things. Putting his knowledge and experience of the poker world and his achievements in it on paper so that others can inspire and learn.

Besides the books he his also a businessman with a line of clothing and a recent application for the iPhone. The line of clothing includes Poker Zen shirts and hats. The app is called the Phil Hellmuth Poker Odds Calculator. It is used to, just as it's name implies, to calculate your odds of winning a hand while playing poker. He says that the unique thing about the app is that you can run your hand against a range of hands at any time during the game. The way you can use it to run against ranges is really appealing, it will give you all the basic math you need like other decision support software already existent on the market, but the ability to run it against other ranges of hands makes it unique. This Poker Odds Calculator app also has videos with tips on odds in general and with tips on how to make a decision on calling or not that includes the consideration of the size of the pot. Basic stuff but that can really give insight into the game.

Talking about the World Series of Poker he said he plans to win 24 bracelets eventually. Recently he narrowly lost his twelfth WSOP bracelet. He came in second in the deuce - to - seven event where he finished just behind John Juanda. He also came in second at the 7 - stud/8 event when he made it to the final table with too few chips due to a lousy previous night. So his twelfth bracelet still awaits him, half way to his chosen destination of twenty four. He says he wants to keep playing into his seventies, so we will being seeing him on the tables for some time still.
