The Ultimate Rock Stars

30 May 2008, By:

The heavy metal guitar player Scott Ian got serious about poker after winning the VH1 tournament "Rock Stars of Poker". He is the latest addition the Ultimate Bet Poker team. Ian took part in an Ultimate Bet poker tournament in Aruba, where he met the poker brat Phil Hellmuth, who has been his mentor since.

As a member of the team, Ian takes part in the Ultimate Bet's $200,000 Guaranteed poker tournament every Sunday. There is an exclusive bounty on Ian's head. The online poker player that knocks the heavy metal guitarist out of the tourney will receive the $215 buy-in back.

"We're thrilled to add Scott Ian to our roster of online poker professionals. Scott represents a new breed of poker player that both Texas Hold'em and music fans can relate to." said George MacLean, spokesperson.

But the real star and bad boy in Team Ultimate Bet is Phil Hellmuth himself. Few players are as controversial as Hellmuth. Some think he is the best poker player in the world and others that he's mostly ego. He is unarguably one of the best tournament poker players on the planet with his 10+ WSOP bracelets. On the other hand it's also said that he is a pretty bad cash game player.

Hellmuth is famous for his blowups at the table calling other players names when they beat him in a hand and he also likes to point out how great a player he is. But whatever you think of Phil Hellmuth one thing is for sure - the world of poker would be more boring without him.
