Phil Hellmuth Wins His 11th Bracelet

Philhellmuth_2After working his way through a field of over 2,700 participants, Phil Hellmuth (at right, photo by Flipchip at lasvegasvegas.com.) masterfully dominated final table play to win his 11th WSOP bracelet yesterday.

The win moves Hellmuth out of his three-way tie with Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan for most all-time WSOP bracelets.

Love him or hate him, there's no denying Hellmuth is the best tournament hold'em player ever in the history of the world, possibly the universe. And he'll be the first to tell you that too.

For the win, Hellmuth banks $637,254. Hellmuth defeated Andy Philacheck ($394,594) heads-up for the title. Rick Fuller, who used to bang date Clonie Gowen, finished third ($247,518). Morgan Machina, whose inability to finish in the top two denied us the opportunity to run with the headline "Man vs. Machina," landed in fourth ($161,425). Scott Clements came in fifth ($112,997), and Fabrice Soulier finished seventh ($64,570).
