Eleven-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, Phil Hellmuth, has made a habit of allowing himself to get blinded off early in a major tournament. Ever the attention whore, Hellmuth tends to arrive up to a couple hours late, especially at the WSOP, so that he can make a grand entrance. Because the chip stacks are so large compared to the blinds at the beginning of the tournament, he does not care about the loss of the chips.
