Phil Hellmuth Claims He Won $11 Million in Cash Games 17 Mar

Long time friends Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu have an ongoing feud that escalated even more this week on Twitter.

We are well used to the fact that Phil Hellmuth really likes to brag about his tournament winnings and especially his 15 WSOP bracelets (rightfully so). This time he took it a little step further with a tweet, where he also pointed out that he had won over $11 million in cash games across his career.

The latest exchanges on Twitter have added to the hype, with Negreanu not accepting some of Phil’s weighty claims.

Their feud has been growing ever since the Poker Brat publicly expressed disappointment in Negreanu’s play against Doug Polk in their Grudge Match.

DNegs wasn’t happy, hitting back by challenging Hellmuth to a heads-up battle, but stating: “I think he’s chicken, to be honest with you. I think he’s scared. I think he knows he’s going to look bad.”
Hellmuth didn’t back down, and the pair agreed on match that starts on March 31, after it was slighly postponed because of 'non-player COVID concern'.

Including the match, the pair made a bet that Hellmuth can’t show a profit across 50 of the Aria’s $25k SHR tournaments.
