Poker Night in America | Season 4, Episode 25 | Face Up With Phil Hellmuth: Part 1

– From Choctaw Resort
in Durant, Oklahoma, this is “Poker
Night in America”! (upbeat music) – Welcome to “Poker
Night in America! Our two smiling faces
are Joe Stapleton and I’m Chris Hanson and
we’re at Choctaw Resort in Oklahoma. Coming up on today’s
show we’ve got Cate Hall, a local lady, a restaurant
tour, a multi-millionaire and more hillbillies than
you shake at Yosemite Sam Mud flap at. – [Chris] As we kick off
day three here in Choctaw, we welcome Gavin Smith
back to the table and Cate Hall as well. Roger Sippl has stuck around. Todd Brunson, Dany George,
all buying in as well. – [Joe] Jason Ettredge, ♪ Come to my payout window Okay, that was a stretch,
sorry about that guys. – [Chris] Ah, talking to Jason
before we got started today, Stapes, he seems like
your kind of guy. I have a feeling that you
– So do I tip you after I win this game too? – And the one seat are gonna
have a great day today. – [Joe] I have a feeling that
I’m gonna end up being really angry with you for
making that comment ‘cus he looks like
a slack jawed yokel. – Kate plus eight, right? Isn’t that a TV show?
– No, he’s a very slack jawed yokel (laughing) – I think so. – There’s not, it should be. – Drinking beer out of a glass, – [Chris] It’s like we’re
in Oklahoma or something – talking about
“Kate Plus Eight” and you’re a homo inspector. – Almost (crowd laughing) I like your style
sir, I like it. – [Joe] Sounds like
fog horn, leg horn, now pay attention
sir, pay attention. – All right Pick me dealer – So three players to the flop. Escamilla has pocket nines and just flop just set of nines. – [Joe] It’s a dicey board
for middle-set. – [Chris] Now Escamilla
got in this game through a hundred and fifty
dollar satellite. – Easy. – [ Chris] That eventually
turned into $10,000. – [Joe] Well that’s fun. Let’s hope it stays $10,000. I like it when the amateurs win. – [Chris] Me too. – [Joe] Gives hope
to the rest of us. – [Chris] Secretly I do. – [Joe] Not a secret anymore. – [Chris] $575, the bet from
Cate Hall. – I was shaving. And then, thing slipped
and my hand was right there. The blade hit it right there. I had my hand like this and
I’m shaving and it slipped and it just (swishing) (laughing) I know. – How many times a day
do you have to shave? – How many what? – How many times a day
do you have to shave? – [Joe] Dicey board for a
middle-set just got more dicier. And the strength
of her gut shot improved. – 14-50. – [Joe] She’s gonna
keep leaning on Nelda. – [Chris ]I think two-thirds of
the people in the arena watching “Poker Night in
America” are here to cheer for Nelda Escamilla. – [Joe] I thought they were
just early for a Nickelback concert. Nelda calls, I like it. I think she’s got a call
again there and wait for hopefully a good river. That’s a good river. – [Chris] Yeah, three of
spades doesn’t really do much of anything to the
hands that might of been out there developing. Hall checks. The correct thing to do here is
check behind, scoop the pot, and move on, correct? – Yeah. – [Joe] I don’t know, I think
some really good players are gonna value bet this. – [Chris] Well that’s why
I’m not a really good player. – [Joe] (laughing) The thing
is it all depends on who’s doing it. I’m fine with a check behind
obviously, but I think some players are so good,
they’re gonna know exactly where they’re at, they’re gonna be able to
value bbet that river. – Nice hand, nice hand! – Some chick-on-chick
violence there. – They said you’re
a billionaire. – No, I know billionaires. – Well, I’m not knocking you
in any way, I’m just saying. – [Speaker] And the
two o’ clock turbo. – I mean that’s awesome. – I know billionaires. – Well, (bleep). – I know you, you’re
a billionaire. – They say you beat – I beat the Hodgkin’s disease. I had stage three
Hodgkin’s disease. – Oh really, so you’re kind
of a billionaire anyways then. – (laughing) Yeah,
it’s all a free-roll. (men laughing) – Whole adult life’s
been one big free roll. – Just me and the winner. – Yes, sir. – King high flop. – As you wish. – Check. – (beep) Damn it, Gavin. – [Joe] This could get
real expensive for Jason. – Six hundred. – [Chris] Went 300 from
George, now 600 from Ettredge. – Raise to 1800. – 5,000 – Raised to 5,000 – Players all in. – You wanna run it twice. – No, you can’t do that. – You cannot do that. – It’s against the rules. I don’t like breaking rules. – Nice hand. – You got kings? – No. – Aces. – No.
– 3600. – Well, what the hell you got? – You’re good. – You’re drawing dead? – What’s that? – Okay. – (beep) Luck box. (beep) luck box. – [Chris] Dany
tells him he’s good and then flops over, set over set. – What the (beep)
you do there, Gavin? – Lose. (laughing) – Deuce. Deuce. (indistinct chatter) Deuce. It’s almost a deuce. Deuce. – Close. – Chop it up. – Good hand. – Chop it up, yeah, chop it up. – (beep) (beep) (beep) – [Joe] Woo! – [Chris] Wow! – [Joe] You kiss your mother
with that mouth? – [Chris] I told you you were
gonna like Jason Ettredge. (laughing) – (beep) What the
(beep) you do there? – You lose, that’s what you do. Then you say (beep) this and
(beep) that for a few hands. (upbeat music) – I think the best part of
that is that I’m happy to hear he’s maybe had a
little to drink. – Yeah I just thought
he was always like that. – [Speaker] For more
from poker night visit or find
us on Twitch, Facebook, Twitter, or Youtube. Where you can see
complete episodes and unedited livestreams. – Back at Choctaw in Oklahoma, I’m Chris Hanson along
with Joe Stapleton on “Poker Night in America.” – We’ve got a
table full of pro’s and a sprinkling of locals. Let’s see how they do. – You were naming
only the hands that he, that you could beat. So you said, do you have aces? Do you have kings? Like, (laughing) Forgive him for thinking that – (Beep) Brunson Them suck. I really wanna play a hand. I really wanna get a set
and get beat, you know. I really want bottom set. It’s really what I want. – Your on tilts, not very good. – I got you out tilted. Let’s drink a beer, (beep) it. – I don’t drink beer. – Let’s drink
vodka and whatever. – Well I got one going right now and I got another
one on the way. – Yeah, you know
grapefruit juice interferes with Lipitor, you know that? – With what? – With Lipitor. You’re on Lipitor, right? – Grapefruit juice, juicy fruit. – Statin. You know,
blocks cholesterol. They put it in the
water in mai thai. – I don’t even know
what the hell it is. – I won yesterday. Look at this (beep). I could put the other ones in. (men laughing) – Gavin’s only had
Viagra and Lamisil. – You can play the
whole eight hours? – I don’t know. Doesn’t look like it right now. I’m gonna need a
little change of something. – Let’s team up. Me and you versus the
rest of the table. Versus, especially
seat seven over there. – I’ll be honored. – [Chris] Escamilla raises
to 1200. – [Joe] I kind
of like her style. – My grapefruit juice? – [Chris] Quite and
unassuming, silent. – You probably have
high cholesterol. – [Joe] I meant
the style of playing. – If you have high cholesterol,
you should be on lipitor. – [Joe] She’s doing
everything by the book so far, it seems like. – And then your grapefruit
juice would interfere with your Lipitor. – Grapefruit, juicy fruit. – Just don’t go to the
doctor, and you’re okay. – Perfect. – [Joe] It’s so rare
that when you have jacks and you hit a flop, you
like with it, so why not? – Fifteen. – (Beep) two. Pocket sevens. – [Joe] Todd’s picked
up a flush draw there, this could get
real dirty for her. – I just wish that Dany would carry himself at a
little higher level than that. – I know, I mean, you’re supposed to be
the ambassador of poker. You carry yourself
like Phil Hellmuth. – I just said you were good. – Why are you supposed to
be an ambassador of poker? What is there about
you that I don’t know? – [Joe] Good
question, Roger Sippl! – What’s your name again? – Dany. – What’s your last name? – He could be a billionaire,
you wouldn’t know. – I said you are, I don’t
know if you are or not. – No, you don’t. But, he could be. How do you know? We don’t know. – Are you really a billionaire? Is this a joke? – I’m not a billionaire. – He’s got his own plane. that you didn’t make that
much money back then for doing that, now you make
a billion, right? All these kids,
they got a billion. – Well, I’m gonna
knock him either way. I mean, I just heard you
were a billionaire last night on my stream. – Oh I’m a stream. That’s nice. – Are you worth a million? – Yes, I am a millionaire. I will confess to that. – I’m worth about this. (crowd laughing) – Maybe that times two. But I’m having fun though
over here, no, right? – That’s the whole idea. – Nice to meet you. – And now you’re trying
to be nice to him after you did that slow roll. – Yeah (laughing) exactly. – No, it doesn’t
work like that, Dany. – Exactly.
– You chose to draw your line in the sand. – Yeah. – I rather be feared
than loved anyway. – Gavin’s missing really
early in the night. – [Joe] Nice call, Nelda. – [Chris] Woo! Take that, son of Doyle. – Oh dear. – Are you kidding me? (clapping) – Look, I think that
was an attempted bluff. – Look, I think that
– Very good hand.
was an attempted bluff. – Very good hand. – Oh my goodness. – (Beep) – Stood her ground. – I got set over (beep) (laughing) – Worried yoiu had a
bigger pair than mine. (laughing) I really was, Todd. – Dare somebody raise that. Tournament player. At least Brunson
ain’t on the button. Uh oh. Smith. Gavin Smith’s is in there. You wanna chop it? We just chopped it. We just run it down. – Chop it five ways? – (Beep) Check’s good. – [Joe] Five ways to the flop. Five person party. – [Chris] It’s a set of
fives for Gavin Smith, both Ettredge and Georges
have a flush draw, Sippl and Georges
both have top pair. It’s Gavin Smith who bets 400. Called in two spots. – The billionaires
are the money. – All in. – Players all in. – I’ll call. – [Joe] Roger
calls a top pair, drawing absolutely dead. – Good luck all in. – Thank you. – What a bad lay down. – Well that’s a
good hand, Gavin. – [Joe] Great bet by Gavin. Gets a hand with equity to fold at a hand
with zero equity to call. Beautiful. – We had the same hand. – [Joe] And Dany
would’ve missed anyway. – Three fives. – How’s your set hold up? – ‘Cus I didn’t get anything
against the bigger one. – Oh. True story. – [Joe] Gavin’s so cantankerous, I somewhat doubt he
was born in Canada. (indistinct chatter) – I would’ve slow-rolled
his (beep) too. – Keep making
lay-downs like that. – You’re never gonna be
a billionaire. (laughing) – [Chris] Georges raises to 150. – (laughing) You’ll
be there eventually. It takes too long that way. You gotta call to
make it there faster. – [Joe] Ettredge’s got the
perfect hand to get set over setted again. – If you hit your ace, you
should stand your ground. Top pair, don’t care. – Gavin, where’s your hat? Where is your cowboy? – [Chris] Oh my,
Cate Hall with aces. She makes it 650. – You guys match, watch. Put yours on, you guys match. See. Now you guys looks like Well, a brother and a sister. – A brother and a sister, now. – A brother and a little sister. – Okay Gavin, repeat after me, top-pair, don’t care.
– All in. – Top pair, don’t care.
– All in. – Top pair, don’t care. – [Chris] Ettredge
gets it all in. Gets a call obviously
from Cate Hall. – They called.
– We turn them up? – You have to, I guess. – Red, pretty red aces. – How about a deuce? – Deuces. – There’s an ace and
a deuce on the board, this table is getting tipped. – That looks like it stuck
out waiting to happen. I’m afraid to tell you. – [Joe] Looks like deuce’s
do sometimes loses. – Nice hand.
– Wee! – So sometimes you got good
hands when you raise too? – One out of ten
times, I try to. – On the button, (beep) (upbeat music) – You know, it is
what it is, man. Goin’ and we play tomorrow. We keep going. – No nickname will stick with
someone if they don’t want it. Well they had a nickname for me,
I forget what it was. Speedball or something like
that. Finally I came up with the idea
of Poker Brat. We thought it was very happy. – [Chris] Welcome back to
“Poker Night in America.” – Mr. Cantu. – [Chris] Brandon Cantu is gonna
take the one seat. – Nothing really
all that great yet. – Could you send
back the other guy? – [Joe] Brandon I would
not drink out of that cup to your left. – What do you mean this
guy’s minus 25% EV, right? – That’s what Alec says. Well it was in that game. – That was in the other game. – It might be more in this one. – Yeah. – Somebody needs to
text Alec and see where I would stand
in this before I play. I don’t wanna make
any bad decisions. – Or text him and see if he
wants to take you to the game. – That’s true. – Or book you, I mean. – Yeah, maybe I should call
for a cross-book. Or to your book I
guess you’re right. – Yeah, all that
jargon confuses me, you guys are gonna have to
explain that to me in a minute. I’ve got a huge hand right now, so just hang onto that. – [Chris] We’re
around to Roger Sippl, and he calls. – [Joe] Any relation to
Doyle Brunson? – [Chris] I don’t think so. – Just a coincidence. – Yeah. – [Joe] Aw man, this is dirty. Cold deck city. Two flop flushes. Nice fold, Dany. – I took three companies public
but I did it so long ago, – [Chris] Sippl calls. – [Joe] Todd just drawing dead
with the second nut flush. – And her daughter keeps
telling us that she’s kicking all of our (beep) and (beep) (beep) happens and all sorts of
stuff like that. (laughing) – Oh she’s like really
rubbing it into you guys? – Oh yeah. – Her daughter’s – She’s stabbing
him and doing this – From the rail. – Which one’s the daughter? – [Joe] Oh, hi. – [Chris] 650 from Brunson – It’s not really very fair. – Do you have any family
here to root you on? – No! – No? Me either. – Oh yeah, there’s my family! – Yeah, see. – T J. – [Joe] T J Cludey? – [Chris] T J Cludey is in the
house, playing the main event here at Choctaw this week. – He’s a good one too. – All in. – Uh oh. – [Chris] Uh oh is right. – That sucks. – [Joe] I haven’t seen
a deck that cold since “Poker Night in
America” Anchorage. – You got a queen nine of
spades. – Yeah. – Wow, I had 8-6 of spades too. – I feel like Todd would
slow down a lot of wars. I don’t think he’s that quick. – I’d love being at war. It’s one of my favorite
things actually. – I think you guys could’ve
done a $1000 war hand right there. It’s quick. It’s just like one card
unless there’s a tie. At least that’s
the war I remember. – War, are we at war? – Just a mini war. – Okay, a scrimmage. – A scrimmage. A border scrimmage. – This is no mini war here. – [Joe] This is no war. This is a massacre. – [Chris] We’ve got three
countries involved in this war. – [Joe] Cate has 73% favorite
before the flop, 92% after the flop. – I’ve got the button so really think before you bet. – He’d already finished
betting before you could say think before you bet. – Yeah, it’s too late then. – [Joe] Cantu
does catch a pair so he is not dead just yet. – [Chris] All right, both
players check. Here comes a river. – [Joe] Cate Hall shall not
be checking the river. I don’t really see a
reason for Brandon to hero with third pair, fourth pair, excuse me. – I don’t know. I’m lost. – [Joe] You are lost
and you have lost. – That would’ve been
perfect opening level at war. – I was sure I was good
until you said you were good until that card. (upbeat music) – [Chris] All right, we’re
gonna wrap it up there for the night and look at the
four seat Nelda Escamilla. Look at this! She is up $11,000, off of basically a free roll. After the break, we’re going to go deeper
with Phil Hellmuth than anyone has ever before. – The horror. Face-up with Phil
Hellmuth after this. – No nickname will stick with
someone if they don’t want it because it’s easy to, if someone
starts calling you something you dont’ want.
Then you start calling something they don’t want and you say
“Hey, if you wanna do this I’m gonna do this to you.”
So they had a nickname for me, I forget what it was, Speedball
or something like that. But I didn’t like it, didn’t
stick long. So finally I came up with the
idea, Poker Brat, and I told Andy Glazer that’s what I’m
going to be called from now on, Poker Brat.
And we thought it was very apt. – [Chris] Closed-captioning
is brought to you as a public service by “Poker
Night in America.” – Welcome back to “Poker
Night in America,” and you know Stapes, one of
the best parts about our job, is that we get to meet
some of the biggest names in poker. – And also Phil Hellmuth. (laughing) – Well, gird your loins, Stapes, because we’re going in deep. We are face up
with Phil Hellmuth. (upbeat music) – One night in like 1987,
I remember I was drinking but it was like three
in the afternoon. I’m watching guys play
pool for $20 a game. I’m thinking, what the hell
are you doing with your life? Is this what you want?
And I’ll never forget, I went to the door
and I opened it up, and this light just smashed me. You’re in a dark, dingy
bar and there was snow on the ground, it was melting, and the sun’s hitting the snow, and just lights
bouncing everywhere, and I thought, wow, this is symbolic of
what I’m thinking. This bright path is the
path I’m going to choose. I remember I immediately left, went back to my house. I wrote down the
pyramid of success. First you have to conquer not
being a compulsive gambler. Then, you have to conquer not being an alcoholic or being a drug-addict. Then the next level
up, maybe exercise, eating well. And the next level
up, maybe meditation. I also wrote that very
same day another pyramid, and which I believe
is true to this day, the poker pyramid. The bottom of the pyramid
exists around the world. The top is right here. So, and that’s
people playing poker at the smallest stakes, and the winners bring
it to the next stake, and then the next stake, and the next stake, and so some people are
able to climb all the way to the top of the pyramid. When you’re at the
top of the pyramid, you’re making all the money. It’s very rare to see
someone caught in the middle, that’s just making $150,000
a year that never tries to jump up. They all try to jump
up to get to the top. And so they all bring
their winnings with them, and most of them lose
it on the way up. But to make all the money,
I had to hit the top of the pyramid. And I had to conquer
all these other elements and this other pyramid, and I saw it very clearly,
this is my life path. (upbeat music) – Well, that was more than
you ever wanted to know about Phil Hellmuth but
that’s not all, part two continues next episode. Does he cry? C’mon. – I don’t think so. This ain’t Oprah. More “Poker Night in
America” can be found at Find us on Facebook, Twitter,
Youtube, and Twitch as well, for up to date information, full episodes and
unedited livestreams. For Joe Stapleton,
I’m Chris Hanson. We’ll see you next
time, right here, on “Poker Night in America.” – You know, and then he rolls over, middel set and I got two’s,
he’s got seven’s, and then I think it was
a king, after a queen, whatever it was. – I thought he took
it like a gentleman. I thought that was cool. I expected him to get a little
hyped up and get crazier, but he was pretty
gentle about it and just sat there. (upbeat music)

  1. Stop crying, Ettredge. It's not becoming to be a little crybaby bitch in actual poker. Step back down to 2-5 or lower with your own kind. Here's another tip: don't be a facetious twat towards wealthy elder fun-player opponents and browbeat them about their personal wealth. It just makes you look more like the bitch that you are.
