June 13, 2012 16 0

Phil Hellmuth needs no introduction. He has been there, done it and he is still doing it. If this was the days of the early Greek civilization, Phil will surely be christened as the god of poker. On Monday morning, Phil showed his poker skills once again in event 18 to win his 12th bracelet. Phil, was ecstatic following his victory, “It feels surreal, I’ve been looking forward to this victory for so long,” said Phil after his victory.

Long time coming

For a man of his stature, it is difficult to believe that this was his first victory in almost five years. His last victory was in June 2007. This does not mean that he always fell on his tries. In those five years, he always came close to winning the big prize, but as fate willed, his moment of near misses was to end on Monday 12th of June. His first WSOP victory was in the $10,000 No limit Hold’em World championship. This was also Phil Hellmuth 87th cash finish. Phil is now the most decorated WSOP player, his closest competitor being Phil Ivey with eight bracelets.

It is imperative to note that this was his first victory in a non-hold’em related event. Phil family was on hand to mark his victory. His son Philip was given the honor of presenting his father with a bracelet to cap a perfect moment for the family.
