Phil Hellmuth Falls Short of 12th WSOP Bracelet

Jenny Woo here and I’ve been forced to stay up all night watching Phil Hellmuth go for his 12th WSOP bracelet, and what a tease he was ending up 2nd at the 42nd World Series of Poker 2011 WSOP No Limit Deuce to Seven Lowball Championship. 

Let me tell you all, I was glad they made me stay up because this was one of the most exciting nights I’ve ever had since moving up here to Pensacola, Florida last year.  I swear, I skipped a night of passion in the mushroom fields for this and loved every second.

Now if only Phil had won!

He walks away with over $200,000 after John Juanda denied Hellmuth from winning his 12th WSOP bracelet.  Juanda himself is an accomplished poker pro.  But Phil made us all here at Gambling911.com very proud. 

Hellmuth tweeted this after the 2nd place finish:

“Strange thing: I finished in 2nd place & Won $270,000, but I feel cmpletly awful + i am unconsolable...Congrats 2 the great.”

My thoughts:  Thank you Phil and John for bringing such excitement to the poker community after two months of pure Hell.  Nothing to be ashamed of and there are plenty more events beyond this one to win that 12th bracelet but we at Gambling911.com congratulate both these fine players.  Need I say more.

Hellmuth, by the way, would pay $125,000 for every $100 bet to win the 2011 World Series of Poker at 888.com, which does not accept US citizens.
