Phil Hellmuth Not the Only One Missing in Action at 2011 WSOP

As we reported the other day, Phil Hellmuth just narrowly missed Sunday’s scheduled play at the 2011 World Series of Poker after he reportedly overslept (or whatever he may have been doing).  Hellmuth had all his phones shut off and poker buddy Mike Matusow had to come rescue the self-proclaimed “Poker Brat” via hotel security.

But there were other notable poker players missing from the WSOP this week for reasons “less innocent” than the one Hellmuth used.

Carter Gill, who has nearly $500,000 in live tournament play and cashed out at two of this year’s events, was thrown out of a Rio-affiliated property for getting into an altercation with a woman and throwing all her clothes out his hotel room window. 

Tournament organizers refused him entry into the WSOP after that incident. 

Gill was once asked, if he could change anything in the world, what would it be?

“Get rid of cows. Seriously. Biggest problem in the world.”

Don’t get rid of poverty…get rid of the cows!

Poker player Tommy Le, meanwhile, showed up at the wrong place, while Peter Hotaling was late picking up his complimentary pair of slippers.
