Phil Hellmuth Harrah's

11 time World Series of Poker bracelet winner and UltimateBet.com spokesperson, Phil Hellmuth, was thrown out of the Harrah's Hotel this past weekend.

On his Twitter page, Hellmuth revealed the following:

"Nice casino Harrah's! i Played blackjack for 500 a hand for 3 hours, took 30 pics, signed 30 autographs last night.. Today kicked me out of suite! one night and out! Harrahs Hotel...will never stay there again.  Now time to get positive!! In limit holdem!"

It was not immediately known why Harrah's kicked Mr. Hellmuth out of his suite, though he later posted on his Twitter page that a VIP host had held onto the suite for him.

The World Series of Poker record holder apparently had a bad night leading into Saturday afternoon, when the Twitter posts were made.

Here were his Tweets late that night:

Lying down on my back over 3 chairs in Rio WSOP Amazon poker room for 25 mins! feeling sorry for myself...i deserve to be in tourney!12:29 AM Jun 12th from txt

Hellmuth's Twitter activity has led to discussion in the past, most recently after he made several entries on the site in a self-proclaimed "drunken state".

Harrah's owns the World Series of Poker.
