Phil Hellmuth to appear at ME WSOP in new suit


'The Greatest Showman' and 'The Lion King': Helmut...

The appearance of the “White Wizard of Poker” in the WSOP Main Event has been eagerly awaited by the community. Every year, Phil Helmut tries out an unusual approach-to-the-table look.

In general, Phil’s future outfits are unknown. The poker player emerged from the tournament area sympathetically, played his way through a few levels, and then carefully donned his everyday clothes to continue his search for a third title.

This year, however, Phil chose to announce his early appearance. Tomorrow, Helmut will play Phineas Taylor Barnum, or rather, his prototype, from Hugh Jackman’s The Greatest Showman.

Phil will be out alone for the second time in his acting history. But with Dan Cates, he opted for an equally interesting costume – the fabled “Lion King.” It’s not known exactly what it is: Beastmaster makeup or a full costume.

Phil expressed hope that it was just a painted face, but Cates couldn’t keep the costume and put on a real show. Especially according to the announcement, the poker player will be accompanied by 17 models.

In various years, Phil has appeared in the most bizarre costumes: the most apt image as a racing driver was at WSOP-2021, played by PokerBrat Gandalf the Wizard of Light in Tolkien’s trilogy, alongside the same Cates, but disguised as Saruman. The two even found time to engage in a sword fight.

Last year’s thrilling outing didn’t pan out. Phil dressed up as Darth Vader from Star Wars. However, it’s not high-quality armor, but ordinary painted tights, which don’t look very good. That’s why Helmut didn’t get any applause – most of the audience just booed him.
