Hellmuth World Series of Poker Racener

Phil Hellmuth is gunning for his 12th World Series of Poker bracelet while bad boy John Racener also joins the final table of the WSOP Event #33 - Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship.

Also among the pack is one David Benyamine, who has won more than $4.5 million lifetime in live tournaments.

Hellmuth will have his work cut out for him trying to grab that record 12th bracelet.  Just last week, the self-proclaimed “Poker Brat” fell short of that feat, finishing second in the WSOP No Limit Deuce to Seven Lowball Championship.

He’s in good company.  Racener fell short, coming in second at last year’s World Series of Poker Main Event.  He walked away with a generous consolation prize of $5.5 million and some change though.  Racener was later arrested for DWI.
