Phil Hellmuth Falls Short in Bid for 12th Bracelet, Again

By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer

Phil HellmuthWe’re well past the halfway point of the 42nd World Series of Poker, and Phil Hellmuth has emerged as the player to watch this year despite the fact he has yet to slip another bracelet around his wrist so far. Hellmuth is already the all-time leader in bracelet wins with eleven under his belt, so it’s not like he needs another one to cement himself as one of the greatest tournament players of all time. However, #12 would be a nice addition for the self-proclaimed “Poker Brat.”

Monday night Hellmuth came close to winning his 12th bracelet in the $10K 7-Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship event, but found himself coming up short at the very end. This marks the second time this summer that Hellmuth found himself heads-up at a WSOP final table in a non-Hold’em event, a fact that is somewhat surprising considering all eleven of his WSOP wins came from Hold’em tourmanents.

At the end of the night, Hellmuth was faced with an uphill battle as he was outchipped nearly 9-1 when he entered heads-up play against Eric Rodawig. The margin proved to be too much for even Hellmuth to overcome as he ended with his second runner-up finish (in a non-Hold’em event nonetheless) of the 2011 WSOP. Just over a week earlier Hellmuth finished second to John Juanda in Event #16, the $10K 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship.
