Phil Hellumth left the 2017 WSOP Main Event in typical ‘poker brat’ style on Day 2. Shortly before his final hand, he was on the receiving end of a bluff by Alan Cutler and the poker brat did not hold back.

Phil Hellmuth

Hellmuth had about 30,000 invested in the pot when the flop opened . Cutler shoved, forcing Hellmuth to either similarly commit his entire stack or fold. Hellmuth did fold to which Cutler showed him !

Unable to hold himself, Hellmuth did as only Phil Hellmuth can and let loose. “Oh my f***ing god!” he ranted. “Are you f***ing kidding me? This is the f***ing Main Event bro!”

Hellmuth, who holds the record for WSOP bracelets, was sent packing soon after and he took to Twitter to let out his dissapointment.

Many other notable names and former Main Event winners were also sent railing including Chris Ferguson, Ryan Riess, Daniel Negreanu, and Gus Hansen.

Chris Ferguson Gets Some Stick

Chris Ferguson too lucked out of the Main Event on Day 2, but not before getting some anger thrown his way. He was on the receiving end of a few choice words from a player at his table. The player’s post was picked up later in the day and it made the rounds on other social media platforms. The anger, of-course, dates back to Ferguson’s involvement and subsequent refusal to apologize in the Full Tilt Poker scandal.

Indians drop out of the Main Event

Consequently, as the Main Event progressed, a lot of Team India dropped out. Of the 1080 players to trump Day 3, Rahul Byrraju is the highest placed Indian at 163rd with 467,000 in chips. Sumit Asrani also made Day 4 with 421,000 chips. Among the other players to qualify are Aditya Agarwal and Nikita Luther.
