Phil Hellmuth is simply the best Texas Hold 'em poker player in the world. Just ask him. Known for his charisma and theatrics – think John McEnroe with cards – he is well on his way to becoming the best all-around poker player of all time.
At his first championship win in 1989, earning a cool $775,000, he became the youngest World Series of Poker (WSOP) champ ever at age 24. His reputation as a wunderkind hasn’t lost its edge even as he stares down the barrel of turning 40.
What other poker star can top this?
