Phil Hellmuth, the self-proclaimed “poker brat” had to shoot layup, free throw, three pointer + 1/2 court shot during the halftime of the UNLV college basketball game Saturday night.  The fans were not impressed.

Hellmuth Tweeted:

“They introduced me for promo, then the crowd gave me a resounding chorus of "BOOS!" Standard...sigh...”

No word on how well he shot, although we’d probably be reading about it if he got the ball in the basket.
