Hellmuth Just Misses Out On 14th WSOP Bracelet
What a World Series of Poker it has been so far, already seeing many players pick up bracelets and now almost witnessing history as Phil Hellmuth came close to increasing his record to 14 WSOP bracelets.
As many poker fans will already know, Phil Hellmuth is the greatest player in the history of the WSOP after grabbing a stunning 13 bracelets during his career. He seems to save himself for this festival each and every year and it has not taken him long during this one to really start putting in the performances.
In Event 7, which was a $1,500 Razz tournament, he managed to get all the way down to a heads up session with Ted Forrest before losing out. Forrest himself is no walkover having claimed five bracelets to his name before this event. He made that six after Hellmuth never really seemed to get the run of the cards in the final.
In times gone past you would expect Hellmuth to be visibly disappointed, hence the name Phil “The Poker Brat” Hellmuth, yet in recent years he claims he has mellowed out and was the first to congratulate his opponent on a job well done.
Other big name players that made the final table in this event included Brandon Cantu, David Bach and Brock Parker who has also gone on to add his third WSOP bracelet in recent days.
We are only a week into the six week long WSOP so far and it is already delivering the high quality poker that we would expect, leaving us to wonder whether it really can get any better. Can Hellmuth go on from this to still lay claim to another bracelet? What about Phil Ivey, arguably the best player in the world, can he end his barren run and add another? We will all just have to wait and see, it really is still early days.
We will update you on any other big wins along the way. So be sure to come and see us from time to time.
