[QUIZ] Phil Hellmuth Sees Poker Players as Animals. Which One Are You?

Phil Hellmuth Thinks You Are A…
Lion

You’re a lion — the tight-aggressive type. You bluff and make light plays sometimes, but you’re usually playing solid ranges, mainly showing aggression when you are betting for value.

Phil Hellmuth Thinks You Are A…
Eagle

Congrats, you’re an eagle — an advanced player. You have clearly put in the time away from the table to improve. Your strategy is tough, aggressive, and theoretically sound.

Phil Hellmuth Thinks You Are A…
Elephant

You’re an elephant — a player on the passive side. You play a reasonable amount of hands and aren’t afraid to call down versus big bets, but you bet, raise, and re-raise preflop a bit less often than you should.

Phil Hellmuth Thinks You Are A…
Jackal

You’re a jackal — a very loose and aggressive player. You play a lot of pots — probably too many — and are not afraid to make big bluffs and light plays. Tighten your strategy, hone your aggression, and soon enough you’ll be an eagle.

Mouse

You’re a mouse — a very conservative type of player (some might call you a nit). You’re pretty tight in most every preflop and postflop situation. Try loosening up!
