Diagnosing Animals - Phil Hellmuth

Poker Strategy works differently on different types of players. Phil has given each player type a corresponding animal.

  • Eagle - The 50 top players in the world are eagles.
  • Lion - Best player in the game. Timing is impeccable. Knows when to play weird hands. Knows when to bluff. Plays tight (patient) in general. Knows when to mix it up. Gets it in good.
  • Mouse - Plays tight strategy. Never bluffs. Waits for best hands.
  • Elephant - Calling station. Calls way too many bets. Rarely raises. Plays too many hands. Worst players.
  • Jackal - Crazy player. Plays way too many hands. Puts in way too much action. Will bust you when gets hot but mostly loses.
