Phil Hellmuth Records Milestone 100th WSOP Cash

Phil Hellmuth Records Milestone 100th WSOP Cash Phil Hellmuth Jr already holds the record for most victories at the World Series of Poker, with his 13 gold bracelet tally way ahead of nearest competitors Doyle Brunson (10), Johnny Chan (10), and Phil Ivey (9). Now, the veteran poker pro has just made WSOP history once more, this time around by becoming the first player ever to cash 100 times at the prestigious poker tournament series.
Phil Hellmuth’s first ever WSOP cash came over a quarter of a century ago in 1988 at the $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Split, where he finished 5th for $15,450. This time around, the 49 year-old was competing in France at the WSOP Europe Event #5:  €2,200 No-Limit Hold’em, when he managed to survive the money bubble to lock-up that all-important cash. Following his historic milestone performance, Phil Hellmuth tweeted:
“Feels wonderful to hit my #WSOPCash100!! I’ve got 99 cashes & 100th one! But no time to celebrate as I’m in the zone w 36 players left.”
Nevertheless, in order to reach his 100th cash Hellmuth had to first sweat on the money bubble for 23 minutes before Pascal Rabany became the unfortunate bubble-boy and the last player to leave empty-handed.
Once in the money, however, Phil Hellmuth was left steaming following a big hand in which the WSOP legend was convinced he had just been bluffed by Brazilian Ariel Celestino:
“Tough tough spot, but if I trust my read and CALL, then I’m chip leader. I had 8s-6s on 8d-5d-2c-5d-3d board and he bet big every street.”
A few hands later, Phil Hellmuth Jr then proceeded to shove his remaining chips with pocket sixes only to eliminated in 29th place (€4,206) by Ariel Celestino holding pocket sevens. Back in his room, Hellmuth subsequently was still rueing the earlier fold he made against Ariel Celestino, stating:
“In my room ruminating: if I make that call then I’m chip leader with 28 left, instead busted..I’m in the zone, BUT I didn’t trust my read.”
Following his latest historic WSOP cash, Phil Hellmuth now boasts $17,972,725 in live tournament winnings, $12,265,000 of which has come courtesy of the World Series of Poker.
