FAMOUS QUOTES BY PHIL HELLMUTH
“Anyone that watched televised poker in ’04 and ’03 saw me take a lot of bad beats — key hands in key situations. Also, from 2002 to 2004, I didn’t play more than four or five events a year. And despite that, I made a couple of final tables in 2003. So I didn’t do too badly, all things considered.”
“The thing was, in high school I was a bit of a loser; I wasn’t very socially adept; I didn’t have a ton of friends and I wasn’t getting high grades. I had probably a B average, which was considered terrible in my family, and all my brothers and sisters were getting A’s. So I felt pretty down about that. I had no friends, I had bad acne, but I always clung to this deeply embedded belief that I had some kind of amazing talent and that I would do some amazing things. Rose Gladden’s prediction just fuelled that belief.”
“Well, even in college I wasn’t doing particularly well as far as grades go, but I was holding my own. I discovered a regular poker game and just started working hard on learning how to play. And the next thing you know, I guess I did achieve some amazing things.”
“Winning the WSOP in 1989 was a huge moment; that was a lifetime goal. Winning three bracelets in 1993 with a second-place finish, that was pretty big, too. And for some reason, winning the Poker EM in Vienna in 2000 was pretty special. It was my first 7-Card Stud victory. I just liked the pageantry and flair of the whole thing. And when my book, Play Poker Like the Pros, made the New York Times Best Seller List, I was on cloud nine.”
