Phil Hellmuth 12th WSOP bracelet

Phil Hellmuth had us all at the edge of our seats last week when he just missed winning a 12th World Series of Poker bracelet at the Event #16: $10,000 2-7 draw lowball championship.  John Juanda eventually went on to beat Hellmuth to win his first ever WSOP bracelet.

But Hellmuth is back for more and making a run for that 12th WSOP bracelet again in the 10K 7-card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Event.  He has made it to Day 2 of that event. 

At press time, Hellmuth was sitting in 7th place at this event with 18 remaining.  1st place takes home $442,183.  There were 168 entries.
