Phl Hellmuth

Emergency Medical Technicians were called to aid World Series of Poker bracelet record holder Phil Hellmuth Thursday evening after he reported serious breathing problems. 

Hellmuth is currently attending the WSOP in Las Vegas and preparing for the Main Event.  He has been on fire so far, finishing in second place in two events.

The self-proclaimed "Poker Brat" diagnosis was “dehydration” and was still complaining about breathing problems but recovering with extra fluid intake.  Dehydration can lead to kidney failure. 

Hellmuth has never had health problems before.
