Congrats @phil_hellmuth.”

Hellmuth’s first 11 bracelets came in Hold’em. Two out of his last three, however, are in Razz. He’s the only person to win the WSOP and WSOP Europe Main Events and told WSOP officials on Monday, “It’s an amazing feeling. It’s one of those ones where I kept my head down the whole time. I tried to stay divorced from the result, detached from the result. I was just focusing on playing great, playing great, playing great.”

In terms of his recent success in Razz, Hellmuth explained, “I think I figured something out about Razz in maybe 2012. All of a sudden, the game just clicked. I was like, ‘Wow, this game just makes sense.’ Then I won a Razz bracelet!”

Hellmuth is up to 109 WSOP cashes, 52 of which are for final tables. Heads-up, he defeated Mike Gorodinsky, also a bracelet winner. Hellmuth said of his adversary, “Mike is just really tough and I need all of my concentration to give myself the best chance to beat him. He played phenomenal poker.”

1. Phil Hellmuth – $271,105
2. Mike Gorodinsky – $167,517

    • Legend.“ As Taylor Swift once said – “Haters gonna hate hate hate hate”…….wise words TSwift, wise words.LOLZ at Todd Brunsons’ tweet!!

    • Well done Sir, definitely my favourite live player of all time. True example of an excellent hand reader, player and gentleman when he’s in that positive state of mind. I hope he finishes his career with 20 bracelets, the man is such an inspiration to people who look past his bad vibe side. Hellmuth all the way, Dodge those bullets baby!

    • Absolute Hellmuth fan here!!!! I fckn love the brat…He’s the one that caught my eye when i was channel surfing that one day, the reason I looked up top 10 hands, then decided I could do it all too!! LOL…my favoritist for sure

      I dont think he has a criminal bone in his body..If he was involved with any shenanigans anywhere it would be because of ignorance and because he’s busy being the brat all the time..Not a conspiring cheater, ever

      Where’s Ivey? Wheres Greenstein? And where the fck is Tony G !! On his dam bicycle going to the store for his Mum or something…Tony G you aint got nothing on the big PH !!!
      So happy for Philbert…He needs a bracelet every year or two or he’ll self implode with his self!!!

      Lol to the people at the hat factory;;;I can hear em now “goddamit he won another one” !! Throw away the old dye were makin a new one again…
