Because, honestly, for Christmas, we give you the good stuff.
Here are the many faces associated with Phil Hellmuth. Don’t be surprised. He’s the best. OBVI. And his FOMO must be off the charts.
*The first time he’s ever been left outside.*

Poker players are sports fans, too!
It's fitting that he's on the set of Billions because it seems that's how many celebs Hellmuth knows.

Ha. Hellmuth: ‘I’m so cool that I just happened upon Jay Z at this game and I didn’t even take this photo personally. How crazy is that?’
‘I mean, he’s so cool. What can I say? We’re both awesome.’ Damian Lewis: Uh.
Another unsure participant.

One of the first times Hellmuth potentially authentically got excited about a celebrity.
Just kidding. Hellmuth kicked off fanboying at a young age.
