UB’s Phil Hellmuth made another special arrival at a World Series of Poker main event.On day 1A of the WSOP Europe main event on Thursday, the 11-time bracelet winner was accompanied by 11 Lady Gaga impersonators — one for each of his bracelets — and a British brass marching band.The arrival, which occurred at the Casino at the Empire in Leicester Square, featured a rendition of Lady Gaga’s hit song Poker Face .“I was pumped to see such a huge crowd gathered at the Empire like never before when I arrived to take my seat at the WSOPE . Quite the arrival I’d say. The London double-decker, the brass band and 11 Lady Gagas all add up to the most unique media event in poker so far,” Hellmuth said in a press release. “My crazy themed grand entrances to the WSOP in Vegas are an institution, and now London’s WSOPE seems to have embraced a whole new tradition too.”The UB pro paraded out of a red double-decker bus, and into the thick of the dancing group of Lady Gaga look-alikes.Unfortunately for Hellmuth, his elimination came later in the day. Check out the elimination hand as featured in Card Player’s ongoing live updates from the 2010 WSOPE main event.At the WSOPE last year, Hellmuth arrived at the Leicester Square venue in a horse-drawn carriage, dressed as Julius Caesar. In 2008, the online poker site held a Phil Hellmuth look-alike contest and invited London locals to show up dressed as the 11-time bracelet winner.Hellmuth recently made an extravagant entrance to this summer’s WSOP main event. Hellmuth arrived dressed as a mixed-martial-arts fighter, with poker player and octagon announcer Bruce Buffer by his side. His arrival was part of an edgier 2010 WSOP theme for UB.If you don’t have a UB account but would like to play and check out some of the site’s special promotions, such as the UB Bad Beat Jackpot , click on the banner below.
