Phil Hellmuth PokerStars

Prior to even leaving UB.com last week, the online poker room he has represented since its inception nearly 10 years ago, World Series of Poker bracelet record holder Phil Hellmuth was rumored to be joining PokerStars, the world’s largest online poker room.

Hellmuth was believed to be entering into a big money deal with that company.

While not offering any confirmation, Hellmuth tweeted just minutes before this article went to press the following:

AMAZING 24 hours for me! Multiple GREAT THINGS, but cannot Tweet about it yet...1 cool thing: going to week long VIP parties at Superbowl!

Hellmuth not able to speak or tweet about something?  That’s definitely a first.

But more interesting is that PokerStars did host one of the biggest VIP Super Bowl parties last year with singer Nelly last year.

Things that make you go “hmmmmmm”.

Stay tuned folks.
