P.H. has started a clothing company: http://pokerbrat.com/apparel

Scroll down and view what the ball cap looks like. It has a stylized PH
on it. I've fantasized what I might say to the gigantic tool who would
actually show up wearing one to play at my table but then I realized: It
might be very, very +EV to look like the biggest tool at the table when
I'm playing away from home. It's a tough trade-off though: Look like the
biggest tool ever, profit, look like the biggest tool ever, profit. I
dunno. Before I try it I want to know if I at least would look like the
biggest tool ever and not just a dope.

ps: Does P.H. REALLY think that people love him so much that they'll want
to wear 'Poker Brat' clothing and, btw, how freakin old can you get and
still be called a brat?

If you believe wearing a PH hat will win you money --for ANY reason--
then you're already a tool.

Please tell me you're kidding.

If you have that little confidence in your poker skills that you're
considering harebrained "table image" ploys, then there's little hope
for you.

Just about every player that I see w/ a poker tattoo has been horrible.
Wearing a PH hat is sort of the same thing, sort of, kind of. So if
there're ppl in the game who've noticed what I have then it might make
some money for me, maybe.

btw: Here's a pic of my murse:
[IMG]http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u133/AzRounder/DSCN0359.jpg[/IMG]
I hope this link works. At any rate you can all see that it's a first
class murse, not some cheap piece of garbage. It's a lot nicer looking
than some backpack or duffel bag. It is chic, hip and 'with-it' and many
of you are just envious that I can pull off the 'I'm tough enough to carry
a murse'.

There's a reason for that: the reason they have a tattoo is that they
lost a bet!

No bigger a tool then if you carried a purse. ;)

PH is just doing anything he can to make a buck while people will buy it.
I think it is smart of him. Do i like his antics? No but they get people
talking and that gets him on TV.

I say good for him for turning his giant douhcery into a money making
marketable name.

I hope they're selling the 7 star general costume. Now, that would be

This qualifies as heretofore unknown levels of douchebaggery. I think
if you were trying to piss everyone off, combining it with quotes, or
even better, blatant misquotes of famous Hellmuth phrases, "staring
into your soul," tantrums at every bad beat, etc. would get the
maximum effect.

Of course you'd also have to wake up and look at yourself in the
mirror in the morning. Is it worth it?

But if it is, I'd also suggest investing in a high quality pair of
running shoes because you're likely to need it. Me, I'm too out of
shape to escape fast enough to make this tactic worthwhile.

What, no PH poker man purse?

Phil plays golf at the country club now and again as a guest. Nobody I
know likes him. Brat =3D Asshole on the golf course.

I promise you I would never wear a piece of Phil Helmuth logo clothing and
can't imagine why any one else would either. Have you seen the cheap,
tacky, home-made looking crap Helmuth wears? He looks like he was dressed
in a dark room by a committee of color blind pimps. And, he acts like the
biggest out-of-control, on tilt cry baby in professional poker. Seriously,
why would you pay this guy to wear his God-awful cloths?

No argument here. It's terrible. But entertaining - I have to admit I

No, I don't enjoy it. I will enjoy it when one of the people he belittles
finally cracks him in the head. If they put that on pay-per-view I'd buy
it.
