When Tim Ferriss the author of The New York Times & Wall Street Journal bestseller The 4-Hour Workweek put out a tweet asking for interview questions for Phil Hellmuth — who will appear on his podcast Fear (less) — I doubt he thought it would bring together the long since polarised poker community as one united front.
With an out pouring of comments from the likes of, Dan Smith, Jason Mo, Terrence Chan, Issac Haxton, Ryan Fee, Fedor Holz, Oliver Busquet, Dan O’Brien, Daniel Cates — it was a veritable who’s who of the poker community all agreeing on one thing: that Ferriss should probably just interview someone else.
The comments ranged from suggesting interviews with other prominent poker players such as Liv Boeree or just anyone else to suggesting Ferriss grill Hellmuth about his dealings with Ultimate Bet.
We are guessing that although this means the poker community can finally agree on something neither Ferriss or Hellmuth were probably expecting such a reaction. Let’s just say, shit got nasty.
