The King WSOP Report - World Series of Poker - LogoPhil Hellmuth, mere days after finishing in 2nd place in the $1,500 Seven-Card RAZZ event, will make another run at his 14th World Series of Poker bracelet on Saturday.

Event #15 ($3,000 Six-Handed No Limit Hold'em) of the World Series of Poker is down to just 15 players. One of those players is the "Poker Brat" himself, who finished Day 3 with a stack of 491,000 in chips, slightly above the tournament average.

Of Hellmuth's thirteen World Series of Poker bracelets, all but one ($2,500 Seven-Card RAZZ in 2012) have come in Hold'em events. Given Hellmuth's proficiency in No Limit Hold'em tournaments (you can make the argument that Hellmuth is the best NLHE tournament player in the world), and given his multi-year hot streak, the "Poker Brat" is certainly one of the favourites to win the tournament.

Here is a list of the chip counts heading into Day 3:

Heinz Kamutzki, 841,000
Davidi Katai, 815,000
Pratyush Buddiga, 760,000
John Andress, 699,000
Mark Darner, 538,000
Phil Hellmuth, 491,000
Gordon Vayo, 483,000
Bill Burford, 454,000
Artem Metalidi, 448,000
Ryan Olisar, 444,000
Gabriel Andrade, 439,000
Zachary Korik, 221,000
Vladimir Geshkenbein, 178,000
Alen Bilic, 105,000
Tony Ruberto, 98,000


A win for Phil Hellmuth on Saturday would give him 14 WSOP bracelets, which would put him four ahead of Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan, and five ahead of Phil Ivey and Johnny Moss.
