The Bleacher Report has listed poker pro Phil Hellmuth (aka “The Poker Brat”) among its list of “Most Punchable” Athletes. 

What does it mean?

Unfortunately, Hellmuth, known as the “poker brat,” would rather speak for himself and does so in the most obnoxious and condescending way possible. His childish temper tantrums are legendary, and he’s become the poster child for how not to behave after a loss. 

Regrets? Absolutely not. Imagine you just won a poker tournament and knocked out a legend in the process. Now imagine that legend publicly berates you by insisting your win was nothing more than an inexplicable fluke: a product of your vast ignorance as an amateur.

Hellmuth managed to just beat out Real Madrid bad boy Cristiano Ronaldo and Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

Alex Rodriguez, who this week made headlines for his own activities in the poker world, ranked 2nd on the list while Lebron James topped it.
