Ivey and Hellmuth Narrowly Miss Out on Bracelets in $10,000 HORSE EventPublished on June 19th, 2012 2:51 pm EST
Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey both made the final table of Event #32 ($10,000 HORSE) last night, but neither player was able to add to their collection of bracelets.
Phil Hellmuth, fresh off of winning his 12th bracelet in the $2,500 RAZZ event earlier this month, was looking to secure his 13th WSOP bracelet, while Phil Ivey was looking to win his ninth.
In the end, both players left empty-handed, as Hellmuth was eliminated from the tournament in 4th place, and Ivey hit the rail in 5th.
Here is how the tournament ended up finishing out:
1. David Baker, $451,779
2. John Monnette, $279,206
3. Paul Sokoloff, $183,784
4. Phil Hellmuth, $134,056
5. Phil Ivey, $99,739
6. Abe Mosseri, $75,511
7. Matt Waxman, $58,093
8. Dan Kelly, $45,360
After boycotting last year's World Series of Poker due to the Full Tilt Poker situation, Phil Ivey has been on a mission this year.
Last night's final table was Ivey's fourth of this year's World Series of Poker. Ivey also made the final table of the $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo (7th, $34,595), the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold'em (2nd, $275,559) and the $5,000 Omaha Hi/Lo ($136,046).
Despite his fantastic results in this year's World Series of Poker, Ivey has fallen even further behind Phil Hellmuth in the all-time bracelet race.
Speaking of Phil Hellmuth, remember when the knock on him was that he only did well in Hold'em events?
Check out these WSOP results from Hellmuth over the past two years:
2012 $10,000 HORSE, 4th, $134,056
2012 $2,500 Seven Card RAZZ, 1st, $182,793

2011 $10,000 No Limit Deuce to Seven Draw, 2nd, $226,907
Speaking of impressive results, we have to mention John Monnette as well. Monnette has five cashes, three final tables and a bracelet so far this year, and has established himself as one of the most well-rounded poker players in the world.
