Phil Hellmuth, George Bush and Condi Rice at the opening of the presidential libraryOn Saturday, Phil Hellmuth announced via his Twitter account that he would soon be meeting the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush:

"Early bird gets the worm! Up at 8:10 am (sigh); heading out to say hi to Garth Brooks and @reggie_bush Then off to meet President GW Bush"

Later in the day, Hellmuth had this to say about his meeting with Bush:

"WOW! Gave George Bush a signed book + signed beer can at his library at SMU + we hit it off really well! Found him to be witty + engaging..."

Hellmuth also posted a picture of himself talking to Bush and Condoleezza Rice, which you can see by clicking here.

The picture inspired Tony G to take to his blog to write a post titled "Phil Hellmuth and George W. Bush best friends?" In the post, Tony G offered $100 to the person who could come up with the best caption to the photo.

It's a bit funny that Hellmuth chose to wear a hat to the opening of the Presidential Library when everybody else in the picture seems to be dressed to the nines..
