Craig Chait managed to beat out one of the greatest poker players, Phil Hellmuth, at this year’s LA Poker Classic $1100 2-7 event.

The reward was a cool  $9,720 with Hellmuth taking home $9,000 himself.

Hellmuth tweeted following his ouster:

Finished second place. Love No-Limit 2-7 tourneys! Looking forward to WSOP No-Limit 2-7 tourneys.

For Chait, it is his second Remington Trophy in so many days and he moves into the top spot of the Player of the Year standings.

He has now won just over $400,000 in lifetime live tournaments.
