Phil Hellmuth Channels Julius Caesar for his Grand Entrance to the WSOP’s Main Event

by Lou on July 9, 2009

“Kiss my ring!” said Phil Hellmuth, dressed as Julius Caesar for his arrival at the WSOP’s main event. He was escorted by a dozen models dressed as female gladiators and heralded by trumpeters.
He arrived as expected, two hours late, to make his entrance into the Rio’s Amazon Room. “When you dress as Caesar you actually feel more powerful,” Hellmuth told The Associated Press.
It’s theater. It’s publicity—and no one does it better than Phil. But Julius Caesar? Hellmuth looked more like he was decked out for an appearance at the White Party than the WSOP. Hail Caesar … errrrr, Phil? Call me silly, but I’ll pass on that opportunity!
