“Poker Brat” Phil Hellmuth On Breinfuel, Being A Best-Selling Author, Family, Gratitude, Tony Robbins, Future Plans & More

The most decorated player in the history of the World Series oO Poker has done it again, in 2021, Phil Hellmuth won an unprecedented 16th World Series Of Poker gold bracelet. Per Hellmuth in a statement from 2021: “I’ve wanted a deuce-to-seven bracelet ever since the 1980s because it was the coolest bracelet to win. It was the one tournament that Chip [Reese] and Doyle [Brunson] showed up for. All of the big-name poker players… all the champions showed up for that one tournament. It was a $10K with rebuys, so they would be in for $50,000. I wanted this bracelet so badly.”

Yet poker is not the only major area of success for Phil Hellmuth. He is a book publisher, a best-selling author and in-demand party host around the world, for starters. One of the tools Hellmuth has credited for his high level of performance and ability to keep productive is Breinfuel. Developed by Dr. Gerald Horn, a Lasik surgeon with a background in pharmaceutical science and disruptive drug development, Breinfuel describes itself as a product which combines “highly researched ingredients with an extended release that is designed to support performance and wellbeing.” Hellmuth began endorsing the brand last year alongside Jonathan Little and Jeff Gross.

On September 14, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with Phil Hellmuth via Zoom, as embedded below. Beyond Breinfuel, we talked positivity, productivity, life away from the poker table, and future plans for him. More on Hellmuth and Breinfuel can be found online by clicking here, here and here.
