Phil Hellmuth Enjoys Some Online Action - Loses $20k
"FYI - because of the $22 million refund, the action at UB is INCREDIBLE right now!!!!"
Phil Hellmuth is primarily known as a live tournament player and not an online high-roller like Phil Ivey or Gus Hansen. He does, however, play at Ultimate Bet regularly, and on his blog he writes about two recent sessions which cost him $10,000 each.
"I guess that I forgot how to book a win online!!! I could have played better both times, and I played $50-$100 blinds, so that $10,000 isn't that much to lose," Hellmuth writes.
He talks about a crazy player who raised/re-raised practically every hand, and finally busted Hellmuth with a flopped set of 8's. According to Hellmuth, this type of player is abundant at Ultimate Bet at the moment.
"I really DID NOT want to quit that game! That $22 million refund has a lot of bad players playing high limit poker at UB right now!! The games are juicy."
