Phil Hellmuth Releases TwitVid From His Time At WSOPE

Phil Hellmuth has posted a four-minute twitvid to his Twitter account giving viewers a tour of the WSOPE venue at the Empire casino in Leicester Square, London and mini interviews with some of his fellow poker players.
Phil’s video offering starts with him outside the casino providing some historical perspective on Leicester square with its statues and artists before moving into the Casino at the Empire proper.
A couple of minutes later Hellmuth reaches the poker designated area of the casino where he finds WSOP Media Director Nolan Dalla sitting with Men “The Master” Nguyen and Mike “The Mouth” Matusow. Nguyen explains that he has just endured an 11 hour flight to get there while Hellmuth calls him the “Vietnamese Godfather of Poker” and predicts that he will find himself in the Poker Hall of Fame “within the next two to three years, if not this year.”
Hellmuth’s attention then moves to Matusow who he claims is upset after being sidestepped by Team Americas captain Daniel Negreanu as a choice for the Caesars Cup team. Matusow retorts:
“I can’t get upset over a f*****g farce. When a 20 year-old is the captain of the European team and a 21 year-old Canadian is captain of an American team, why should I be upset?”
Hellmuth then recalls the Full Tilt Million Dollar Cash Game that Matusow had been involved in recently and which included Phil Ivey, Allen Cunningham, Chris Ferguson, Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Patrik Antonius and Andrew Feldman. He then reminds him that that he had walked away from game $105,000 in profit while Matusow explains:
“It was without a doubt the toughest lineup I have ever played.I definitely brought my A+ game, not only because of the difficult table, but because no one would talk to me!” Hellmuth then reveals he had been contacted by the producers to make an appearance on the show so as to provide a foil for Matusow, much to the amusement of Nguyen and Nolan Dalla.
