Hellmuth Takes Second Shot at Number 10

Phil Hellmuth really wants this 10th bracelet.

After coming thisclose to capturing bracelet number 10 to tie Johnny Chan and Doyle Brunson atop the all-time list in Event #9, Hellmuth now finds himself second overall in chips in Event #24 ($3000 Omaha hi-low).

Throwing all journalistic integrity aside, it'd be a great story to see Hellmuth win this. He's playing unbelievable poker and to rebound after a crushing defeat just 10 days ago would be an exclamation Scottclementspoint on a career that still likely has [a few more exclamation points in it].

First, Hellmuth will have to get past Scott Clements. Clements cashed earlier in this year's WSOP in the $2,000 Omaha Hi/Lo event and from the picture of him at right, looks as if he's capable of killing you win you least expect it.

The rest of the final table chip counts: 2) (the aforementioned) Phil Hellmuth - 158,000, 3) Ronald Matsuura - 120,000, 4) Alex Limjoco - 116,000, 5) Peter Costa - 108,000, 6) Stephen Ladowsky - 97,000, 7) Thor Hansen - 86,000, 8) Martin Corpuz - 76,000, 9) Brent Carter - 49,000.

You are correct.

Just looked at this story again and damn that Scott guy looks like he's ready to unleash some sort of revenge-fueled killing spree.
