Phil Hellmuth 12th WSOP Bracelet

Regardless of what was going to transpire at the 2011 Event #55: $50k Poker Player's Championship, Phil Hellmuth once again has made an impressive run as he gunned for his 12th World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet.  Is it safe to say, congratulations Phil Hellmuth!!!!!

Congrats indeed, but once again Phil Hellmuth has been denied a bracelet.  Brian Rast wins it in shocking fashion. 

It's been an absolutely amazing run this World Series of Poker and Hellmuth has certainly built a strong case for the poker "being a game of skill" argument. 

Hellmuth has already cashed out in second place in two WSOP events this year and is showing why he may just be the best poker player in the world. It came down to Hellmuth vs. Brian Rast in the final hours and by 5:30 am EDT Hellmth had double the number of chips as Rast.   Both players were guaranteed over a million dollars.  But just before 5:45 am EDT it was BUSTO for Phil as Brian Rast took the bracelet. 

The Poker Players Championship cost $50,000 to enter, making it the priciest tournament in WSOP history.  $1,720,328 will be rewarded to the winner. 

ESPN3 had live streaming for this event.
