Phil Hellmuth praises MrBeast, Ninja, xQc after Ludwig’s $1M poker event

Poker legend Phil Hellmuth praised MrBeast, Ninja, xQc and more after having a blast at Ludwig’s $1M YouTube poker tournament and even claimed he made new friends.

On Sunday May 1st, Ludwig hosted a $1 million YouTube poker tournament. It featured some of the biggest content creators in the world, along with a handful of professional poker players including Phil Hellmuth.

Not only the spectators had a lot of fun watching the event, the participants also enjoyed it.

Hellmuth shared his thoughts on it now that it was complete, showering the other contestants with praise in a series of tweets.

Ludwig’s $1 million poker tournament was a resounding success.

First he praised Alexandra Botez, who dominated the tournament and won a whopping $456,900 for her efforts. It quickly became clear that she was not only the chess queen, but maybe also the poker queen.

“Alexandra Botez is a delight,” he said. “She’s smart, sociable, fun to be around and gets along well at the poker table. She won big and she handled my attacks with aplomb and clever replies. Well done Alex!”

He then turned his attention to MrBeast, who took second place with a solid $438,900. The two have hung out together before. However, that didn’t stop him from heaping praise on the beloved YouTuber.

“Jimmy is an amazing person! After spending time with him on and off the table, I can tell you that he is exactly who you see: caring, loving, fun AF, charismatic and he’s helping the world! What a great role model for our children.”

Eventually he got to Ludwig, who not only organized the event but also made a big win, taking home $404,700. “Ludwig was cool as the other side of the pillow!” he said. “He organized the game, he played great poker and won big.”

He also praised Ludwig for handling the “ups and downs” of a poker tournament like a “true pro” before poking fun at himself for not doing the same. At least he spat on the pacifiers a few times throughout the night.

Next, he praised the Juicer Warlord himself, who was one of the stars of the show despite losing over $100,000 throughout the night.

“xQc is a boss!” he said. “He’s firing off millions of dollars on his stream just playing and having fun. He behaved perfectly at the poker table and had the best sunglasses. Great personality!”

Finally, Hellmuth raved about Ninja, who finished fourth after winning $144,300 throughout the night. He praised his charm, smarts and work ethic and claimed they are now friends.

“I’ve found a new friend in Ninja!” he said. “Tyler is from the Midwest and married to a man from Wisconsin. His intelligence and charisma shine. You can see why he became the number one streamer in the world. He worked hard for that.”

Ludwig has proven once again that he is the king of innovation when it comes to pushing the boundaries of what streamers can do. He did it with Mogul Money, a game show inspired by Jeopardy. Now he’s done it again with poker.

It’s not the first time streamers have come together to play stream poker. However, it was arguably the largest and most professionally organized tournament they have ever hosted, and there were some real pros in there too.
