Poker T-Shirts

by , Jul 4, 2009 | 11:18 am

Big ups to the WSOP for much better T-shirts for sale this year. Though shockingly they didn’t bring back the Phil Hellmuth camisa that listed all his bracelet wins on the back — I kinda wish I had one for the irony now that they’re gone — they do have this one, which is pretty funny to poker people and even funnier for the non-:

BTW, while we’re still thinking about and workshopping new names for the $1,500 Super Mega-Awesome-WSOP-Initiation No-Limit Hold’em Pokerthons, so long as the official WSOP store is selling the above shirts (and they should, because they’re funny), just sayin’ that some people might have a hard time letting go of the phrase “Donkaments”.

Meanwhile, this shirt is not for sale in the WSOP store, but is still pretty awesome, and doesn’t technically violate Rule #36, though I’m sure it insults somebody!

Thanks, Ed, for the link!

Phil Hellmuth Sells!

With help of PokerBrat romance script

Speaking of Thrillist … my other, non-poker gig … one thing we’ve learned over there is that Thrillist readers care way more about night clubs, booze, restaurants, race cars, and tiddy bars than they ever do about poker.

So I was a little surprised to get the numbers back from last week’s edition, where an item about Phil Hellmuth’s new website for his clothing line was the highest performer. Really? Yep … A decidedly non-pokery readership found the PokerBrat’s T-shirts and Pep Pills more intriguing than an MGM bar, a new gambling-themed wine, casino decor, and a corner of P-Ho where blackjack dealers wear lingerie:

From Thrillist:

Thrillist - PokerBratWear: PokerBrat Clothing
These surprisingly subtle tees come from the John McEnroe of poker, 11-time WSOP champ Phil Hellmuth, with highlights including “Poker Tree” (“grow that chip pile from a toothpick to a lumberyard”), and “Poker Skater”, harkening back to his U of Wisconsin transpo from barroom games back to his dorm. Less tastefully, Hellmuth also hawks books, DVDs, and “Go Heads-Up” energy pills, guaranteed to keep you at the table long enough to lose your subtle tee.

They really are some pretty cool shirts. But perhaps the scary thing is clicking through the site, where Hellmuth tries his hand at pokery grocery-store romance. Click below to read about a poker-bratty encounter with the woman who would later become his wife:
