Prop bet or publicity stunt? Either way, the long tradition of poker pro Phil Hellmuth getting dressed up at the poker table has taken a new turn. No longer a brat, he’s come dressed as an adult baby.
Phil Hellmuth joins the set of the current taping for Poker Night In America at Maryland’s Live! Casino in a ratings-grabbing baby costume complete with a baby bottle and rattle. It turns out that he lost a bit of a prop bet, being the first to bust a recent sit-n-go.
So, the Poker Night team went to find Hellmuth a suitable suit to wear at the table.
and so, now he’s playing cash as The Poker Baby.
Amusing to be sure, even for poker legends.
“Honey, honey…they’ve dressed me like a baby!”
