15-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth is selling his Las Vegas home and took to social media to help facilitate the sale.

Hellmuth tweeted Monday that he was using friend and poker pro turned realtor Karina Jett to sell the house, but that he would “give social media a shot” as well. The tweet included four photos of the Las Vegas Country Club home.

According to the real estate website Zillow, the house was built in 1974. World Poker Tour Season XI Player of the Year and Hollywood writer Matt Salsberg commented that the house was still sporting all of its original furnishings.

The needles only got sharper as commenters began asking if that was the home featured in a somewhat infamous ESPN segment during the WSOP main event where he was seen meditating in his home and shirtless on the balcony.

The segment was centered around Hellmuth’s pre-tournament mental game preparation. Hellmuth confirmed that it was the house where the segment was shot.

Eventually, a few of Hellmuth’s Twitter followers looked up the estimated price of the house on real estate websites and saw that Hellmuth was asking between $70,000 and $105,000 more than the estimated price, depending on which website they used.

Zillow has the property listed as pre-foreclosure. If that is indeed the case, a bank will own the house unless Hellmuth sells it soon.

Hellmuth has $23.4 million in lifetime earnings and is 22nd on poker’s all-time money list. The Wisconsin native sold a two-hour coaching session in April for $17,000 to raise money for a COVID-19 charity.
