Hellmuth wins 12th WSOP bracelet

#1
in the $2500 Razz event...like him or hate him the guy is a great tournament poker player...last year he finished 2nd in 3 events at the WSOP looking for his 12th bracelet, I'm happy for him.


At the same time Hellmuth was heads up for the bracelet, so was Phil Ivey in the 10k Pot limit Hold em event, but he finished 2nd to Andy frankenberger.

Is he the first to 12 bracelets? If I remember right- Brunson, Hellmuth and Chan were tied a couple of years ago.

yes he was the first to 11 as well..next best has 10..glad he got it after the 3 second place finishes in last year's WSOP, which is a damn fine accomplishment in it's own right.

Hate the guy and how he plays, but there is no arguing with his success.

I've lost a little interest in the WOP the last few years so i haven't kept up with it but Helmuth used to make grand entrances to the WSOP, I think to the main event. Does he still do this?

I do not like Hellmuth at all, but don't need anyone to like you to be a winner. He won the bracelet, that's what matters. Dude knows how to keep his eyes on the prize.

If everyone hates on you then you're doing something right...all the man does is win, although he seems to get crushed in the cash games...atleast on HSP lol

no one doubts phils tourny skills but i think ive seen this guy at cash tables a dozen times or more and cant remember him ever winning. Its not hard to give back your tourny profits at the rings if you cant handle the heat

If not mistaken, he finished 4th in the 1 million $ buy in! Not a bad payday, but sucks for how much you had to put up. Estandiari finished first and won 18.356 million and 2nd won 10 million.

Re: Hellmuth wins 12th WSOP bracelet

he ran really good to win

if you watched the live coverage he had all the coolers it seemed

not hard to win when getting dealt AA etc..

not taking anything away from his win just putting it in perspective.
