Despite some recent bad luck and two other poker pros vying to break his record, Phil Hellmuth still holds on to the record for most bracelets won at the World Series of Poker.

Poker pro Johnny "The Orient Express" Chan's attempt to win his 11th career World Series of Poker (WSOP) championship gold bracelet and tie Phil "Poker Brat" Hellmuth Jr. for the all-time lead fell short this week, Thomas Somach of PokerHelper.com reports.

"Instead, Chan remains tied for second-place on the list with Doyle "Texas Dolly" Brunson at 10 bracelets won.

"Chan was attempting to win 2009 WSOP Event #29, a no-limit Texas hold ‘em heads-up tournament that had a $10,000 buy-in, a prize pool of about $2.4 million, 256 entrants and 32 payouts.

"Chan finished tied for fifth in the event.

"The tourney was won by Leo Wolpert of Fairfax, Virginia, USA."

Doyle Brunson is also in the running to tie Hellmuth's record number of bracelet wins.  Brunson has advised he will be playing in the 50K Horse.

Meanwhile, Hellmuth's bad string of luck continued.

From his Twitter page:
