Hellmuth Busts Main Event, Chases Bracelet #15 in Final WSOP Event

Published on 15 July 2016 by Pokerlistings 124

Phil Hellmuth is a former Main Event champ and the leading all-time bracelet winner but not even his mystical white-magic poker skills could land him a spot in the money in this year's world championship event. Hellmuth told PokerListings.com that with just three cashes in over 30 events this summer, he's disappointed with his results and isn't sure what exactly went wrong. After busting the Main Event Hellmuth said he was going to buckle down and jump into the 2016 WSOP's final event, the $1,111 Little One for One Drop, to give himself one last chance at a gold bracelet. Hellmuth said this summer he's been working out and even tried staying up all night drinking one night to shake things up but it added up to a frustrating summer in Las Vegas for the poker brat. Don't feel too bad for him though. Right before the WSOP started he finished fourth in the $300,000 Aria Super High Roller Bowl for $1.6 million.
