Phil Hellmuth: ‘Crazy Frenchman is Going to Cost Me My 14th Bracelet’

Gunning for his 14th World Series of Poker bracelet, poker pro Phil Hellmuth went up against Frenchman Davidi Kitai….and it wasn’t going to be pretty.  Not only was Hellmuth eliminated, Kitai ultimately won the Event #15: No-Limit Hold'em Six Handed.

Hellmuth checked, Kitai bet 48,000, and Hellmuth quickly check-raised to 100,000. Kitai pushed back with a three-bet to 155,000, and Hellmuth shot out of his chair in disbelief.

"Crazy Frenchman is going to cost me my 14th bracelet," Hellmuth said before folding. "You have no chance to win sir."
Someone at the table then asked Kitai if he had ever won a tournament, knowing full well he was a Triple Crown winner. Hellmuth was oblivious to that fact though as he interrupted, "Of course he's never won a tournament before."

Hellmuth was eliminated in 8th place Saturday evening, failing to make the final table.  Kitai was leading with chips heading into the final table and never looked back.

This is the Frenchman's 3rd WSOP bracelet.
