Phil Hellmuth Closes In On 12th WSOP Bracelet at $10k 7 Card Stud Event

Recently, Phil Hellmuth narrowly missed out on a 12th WSOP bracelet after losing heads-up to John Juanda in Event #16: $10,000 2-7 draw lowball championship.
Despite picking up an impressive $226,907 for his excellent effort, it is was a 12th WSOP bracelet which has eluded him since 2007 that is still the biggest motivator for the millionaire poker legend.
Now, however, Phil Hellmuth has given himself another good shot at adding to his record-breaking tally after making it through to Day 2 of the $10,000 7-card Stud Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Event.
Hellmuth had just busted out of a No Limit Hold’em event when he entered Event #16, and tweeted:
“Out of no limit, Played well; unlucky …But maybe will work out for best cause I entered 10k buy in Seven Stud 8/b + I have a good feeling.”
Hellmuth’s feeling seemed to be right on the money this time and he later tweeted;
“..playing in the zone, need to keep it up!!”
Now currently lying in 8th spot with just 18 players of a 168 starting field still remaining, Hellmuth needs to survive just two more elimination to be guaranteed at least $27,888.
Furthermore, the 46 year-old family man from Wisconsin has already outlasted top players such as Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier, Barry Greenstein, Erick Lindgren and Doyle Brunson as he battles on for a place at the final table of eight.
Nevertheless, the 11 times WSOP bracelet winner still finds himself in a tough, star-studded tournament with players such as David Benyamine, John Racener, Ted Forrest, Phil Laak, Erik Seidel and Justin Smith still in contention.
With the third and possibly last day of the $10,000 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo Split-8 Event concluding tonight, Phil Hellmuth will be aiming to add the bracelet and the $442,183 first place prize to his incredible WSOP résumé.
