The record 16-time bracelet holder has now shattered another record:  Most final tables in a single year. 

This is Hellmuth's seventh appearance at a WSOP final table in 2021, breaking the record held by An Tran since 1992.

And that had Mike "The Mouth" Matusow proclaiming Hellmuth as "The GOAT" in poker.  He also demanded that the "young haters" apologize for doubting the Poker Brat's talent.

Most of Mike's followers were in agreement.

A Twitter follower named Sal wrote:

"He is the GOAT - hands down - no doubt the best ever to play the game - in all different facets - no one can say he has done what he has accomplished - no one - Simply put - Phil is Legendary !"

Here are Hellmuth's accomplishments so far this year.

Sixth in Event #2: $25,000 H.O.R.S.E.

Fifth in Event #9: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

Fourth in Event #19: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship

First in Event #31: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw

Second in Event #36: $10,000 Dealers Choice Championship

Eighth in Event #78: $10,000 Razz Championship
