Phil Hellmuth Just Misses 14th WSOP Bracelet Win: Ted Forrest Wins 6th Bracelet

It happened three times during the 2011 World Series of Poker, record bracelet holder Phil Hellmuth oh so close to winning another bracelet before bowing out in 2nd place.

It’s happened again in this year’s $1,500 Razz event, which drew 352 players, resulting in a $475,200 prize pool.

This is Hellmuth’s 10th runner-up finish and 49th final table appearance in a World Series of Poker event.

The winner of this year’s $1,500 Razz event is no stranger to WSOP bracelets.  For Ted Forrest this is bracelet number six.  And for many who haven’t followed poker for over a decade, this may actually surprise a lot of folks being that Forrest hasn’t won a bracelet since 2004. 

The Syracuse-born 49-year-old won three of his WSOP bracelets in a single year: 1993.  He’ll take home a cool $121,196 from this event.

"Of all the tournament's I've played, this one was the toughest when we gone down to heads-up," said Forrest after the win.  "I've never gone back and forth this many times against anyone.  Phil is a great player obviously, and to win in this way really makes it even more satisfying.  I don't know what I can say other than this is what we play for, for this moment."
