Phil Hellmuth: “Everyday People Tell Me How Great I Am”

Doug Polk catches up with Phil Hellmuth after their recent high stakes Poker Night in America outing to talk on a whole host of topics including his thoughts on Tom Dwan, William Kassouf and what he attributes to his success.

Noetics Hoodies asks its customers, “Are you a high-stakes cash game player? Noetics products are designed together with the best grinders in the world” — with hoddies costing around $200, you definitely need to be a high-stakes cash game player to afford one.

Here’s Patrik Antonius in action modelling the Noëtics Long Sleeve in their latest advert.
