Phil Hellmuth Finishes in Seventh Place

Phil Hellmuth - WSOPE logoPhil Hellmuth's quest for his 12th World Series of Poker bracelet fell just short earlier today, as he ended up finishing in 7th place in WSOPE #1.

Hellmuth seemed poised to make a deep final table run on Sunday, as he finished Day 2 with the second largest chip stack with just 12 players remaining. It was not meant to be though, as the "Poker Brat" bowed out of the tournament in seventh place, taking home a little over 24,000 Euros for his efforts.

Hellmuth was looking to move ahead of Ben Lamb (at least temporarily) in the WSOP POY race with a strong finish in Event #1. However, Hellmuth ended up finishing a few points short and still sits in second place. Lamb will very likely add a considerable number of points to his total when the November Nine final table gets underway later this year.

Despite falling short once again today, Hellmuth has put together an unbelievable run at this year's World Series of Poker. Let's look at what Hellmuth has been able to do this year:

2nd, $50k Poker Player's Championship, $1,063,034

2nd, $10k Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo Championship, $273,233

2nd, $10k No Limit Deuce to Seven Draw World Championship, $226,907

7th, 2,680 Euro Six Handed No Limit Hold'em, 24,183 Euros

28th, $1k NLHE, $10,560

36th, $5k NLHE (6-Handed), $17,270


Can Hellmuth overtake Ben Lamb by the time that this year's WSOPE is over? We'll soon find out.
