Hellmuth Finishes Runner-Up To Ted Forrest in $1,500 Seven-Card RAZZ EventPublished on June 2nd, 2014 8:03 pm EST
Phil Hellmuth's 14th World Series of Poker bracelet is going to have to wait after "The Poker Brat" fell just short in the $1,500 Seven-Card RAZZ event last night.
Things seemed to be coming together nicely for Hellmuth in Event #7 after he entered heads-up play with a 2-1 chip lead over Ted Forrest. Unfortunately for Hellmuth, Ted Forrest is never an easy out - Forrest showed his mettle as he battled Hellmuth for a number of hours. The end for Hellmuth eventually came and his dreams of a 14th bracelet were put on hold for another day.
Everyone was focused on Phil Hellmuth heading into the final table, but Forrest needs to be congratulated as he was able to take down the sixth World Series of Poker bracelet of his career, moving him into a tie with the likes of TJ Cloutier, Layne Flack, Jay Heimowitz and Daniel Negreanu. With his win on Sunday night, Ted Forrest now has nearly $6.2 million in total lifetime tournament winnings.
This was the second RAZZ bracelet of Forrest's career, as he also took down the $1,500 Seven Card RAZZ event in 1993 for $78,400.
Phil Hellmuth was gracious in defeat - here is what he said to say on his Twitter account about the outcome:
"Congrats to my old friend Ted Forrest on winning #WSOPRazz tourn. If I had to lose to someone, I'm glad it was Teddy....2nd place for me"
Here is how the final table ended up finishing out:
1. Ted Forrest, $121,196
2. Phil Hellmuth, $74,848
3. Greg Pappas, $48,275
4. David Bach, $34,979
5. Brock Parker, $25,717
6. Brandon Cantu, $19,183
7. Yuebin Guo, $14,517
8. Kevin Iacofano, $11,143
