WSOP One Drop:  Poker Brat Phil Hellmuth Says ‘Time to Man Up’

Phil Hellmuth was among the 21 remaining at this year’s much ballyhooed World Series of Poker One For One Drop – No Limit Hold’em Event.

It’s a $1 million buy-in that will end up paying $18,346,673 to the winner and $10,112,001 to the runner up, which itself would become the third biggest cash of any poker tournament to date after the One Drop win and 2006 WSOP Main Event win by Jamie Gold.  Since that Main Event, first place wins have fallen short of the $10k mark.

For Hellmuth, the money will certainly mean something but he also stands to break his own record, gunning for a 13th World Series of Poker bracelet. 

Hellmuth tweeted shortly after 5 pm Pacific Time Monday:

21 left, I took a hit last level, BUT I still have close to average chips w 6.3 Million...9 get paid, time to MAN UP the next 2 levels!

Remaining players included the likes of Brian Rast (chip leader), Jason Mercier, Antonio Esfandiari, Tom Marchese, popular British poker pro Sam Trickett, Mike Sexton and Rick Salomon, the individual Gambling911.com highlighted as having starred in that infamous Paris Hilton sex tape and marrying Pam Anderson.
