So, I received an email from Ultimate Bet. Phil Hellmuth is acting as sponsor for a Hurricane Katrina Relief Tournament.
Now while this is a serious event and really a good cause... I have to take a moment here.
Phil Hellmuth is known as the Bad Boy of Poker. Last year (2004) in the World Series of Poker he was quoted as saying, "Well, I guess if luck wasn't involved, I'd win every one."
So... while I salute Ultimate Bet's desire to raise money for the relief efforts... You have to understand there is something fundamentally wrong with the phrase:
"From the goodness of the heart of Phil Hellmuth..."
