Andddddd flash forward real quick….
And boom went the dynamite.
Love him or hate him, Phil puts up results year in and year out. He almost didn’t even play the bird at all, and then he went out and won the dang thing. And that’s no small task- wining the 5k Turbo is no easy feat, nor is winning 15 total bracelets with the spotlight always on you.
He gets a lot of shit from the poker community for his antics at the table, which he fucked up so badly this year to the point he bought a player into next year’s Main Event to make up for it
But credit where credit is due, he manned up, showed up, made no excuses, and realized he was lucky to be there, and took down the tournament for a fun $485,082. He seems happy about it.
And just to wrap up Poker Day at Barstool, make sure you listen to yesterday’s Pardon My Take with my pal Daniel Negreanu. He tells what is the most ridiculous prop bet story I’ve ever heard, and some other good gambling nuggets.
