Trump is the ‘Ultimate’ LAG, says Phil Hellmuth

The World Series of Poker main event 2006 champion Jamie Gold already pressed on the presidential debate on Fox News, and now the 1989 champ is offering his thoughts on this situation as November comes in.
In a chat show with TheStreet, the fourteen time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth stated that Donald Trump, who is an ex casino owner in the Atlantic City, is the ultimate “loose-aggressive player.”
Hellmuth told that when someone plays against a loose aggressive player, you think of a harpoon. You nail them with a harpoon, on one big pot for all their chips. They are a big target, and Trump is a big target.
