Phil Hellmuth is known for his outbursts at the table and elaborate entrances to events. It was yet another case of the latter at the World Poker Tour Venice Grand Prix on Tuesday.
Hellmuth made a grandiose entrance via one of the historic Venice gondolas. Hellmuth, dressed in festive Carnevale di Venezia garb, floated to the dock of the famed Casino di Venezia, stepped onto the walkway and strolled into the poker room. Along the way, the 13-time World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner was flanked by the WPT's Royal Flush Girls.
Upon taking his seat at the table in the tournament room, Hellmuth was served a sparkling glass of champagne from a stunning female before getting to work. His performance on the felt wasn't as memorable, though. Hellmuth busted before the end of the day and was off to take a few more gondola rides.
