Phil Hellmuth has spoken about his poker career and many other things in the recent interview that he gave on his website. On Phil Hellmuth’s website was this tweet from iconic actor/comedian Steve Martin who said, “I came to the poker tournament at the Golden Nugget because of Phil. He made my day.”

It was a grand occasion in a wave of TV appearances for poker’s charismatic “bad boy,” who has become the face of a sport that exploded on the national scene two decades ago with ESPN’s coverage of the World Series of Poker and shows no sign of slowing down.
