WSOP Europe Main Event: Phil Hellmuth Wins 13th Bracelet!

Tags: cannes, final table, jason mercier, joseph cheong, main event, phil hellmuth, WSOP Europe.
Posted on 05 October 2012 by "T".

A big congratulations to Phil 'The Poker Brat' Hellmuth who outlasted a field of 420 players in the 2012 WSOPE Main Event in Cannes, France! This was the poker legend's bracelet victory number 13, and it occurred only three months after his 12th win at the WSOP (Event #18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz)!

Hellmuth is now in the lead in the "Player of the Year" race for 2012. Only Greg Merson can now surpass Hellmuth, but Merson needs to win the WSOP Main Event Championship in order to do so. The final table will be played at the end of October at which time the "Player of the Year" winner will be determined. 

"I don't say this often, but I am truly humbled by this," said Hellmuth afterward.  "This is one of the most prestigious titles in poker and to get this one, it's right up there with the (1989) world championship."

Final table results:
1st - Phil Hellmuth, €1,022,376
2nd - Sergii Baranov, €632,592
3rd - Stephane Albertini, €423,360
4th - Joseph Cheong, €292,320
5th - Christopher Brammer, €207,648
6th - Paul Tedeschi, €149,184
7th - Stephane Girault, €108,864
8th - Jason Mercier, €84,672

Lol this Stephane Albertini is tremendous- way better than hellmouth- he managed to come in second and third in same tourney- now that's epic, and he got a bigger payout than the winner, lol. i thought mercier will outdo phil...

Wish I could be like that and play like him, with his success....................

Big congratulations to Phil Hellmuth, thats indeed a great result and i fact this is his first WSOP european bracelet i think Big Smile

The action on this event was really good and so it should have been considering all the big names that took part Smile

 ayaraled07/10/2012 11:10:00 GMT
wow 13 bracelets...hellmuth is really on of the best in tournament poker.....also he's character makes poker more entertaining when he plays...sometimes his rants are out of line but he is really a good player....
 Fakiry08/10/2012 09:55:19 GMT
Hellmuth is everywhere and his race for bracelets seems that won't have an end this soon. He keeps winning them, and i am sure he doesn't think about stop doing it, or at least keep trying to do it. And even if he doesn't win the Player of the Year title, he will still be amongst the best and the memorable ones, with a picture of him holding his 13 bracelets.
