Phil Hellmuth Will Make His Latest Entrance Yet -- Tomorrow
Level 2: 100-200, ante
Phil Hellmuth is famous (infamous?) for several reasons, but people have come to expect his late arrivals to major tournaments. For the WSOP Main Event, his entrance has gotten bigger, more elaborate, and dare we say, more obnoxious year after year.
For WPT events, he usually shows up late, but without that level fanfare -- he just takes his seat a few hours after everyone else. But with super-deep chip stacks and late registration open until 5:00 pm tomorrow, Phil Hellmuth plans to skip Day 1 of this event.
We've received word that he will register tomorrow, and on his personal Twitter feed he says he isn't even boarding a plane for Vegas until later today. (A private jet, natch.)
Hellmuth might not be the only Day 2 arrival, as we have heard the possibility of a few others, including Andy Bloch and Howard Lederer.
