Phil Hellmuth has just extended his lead further on the WSOP gold bracelet leaderboard after picking up his 14th bracelet in the $10,000 buy-in Razz Championship (Event #17).
Back in 2012 many doubted that Hellmuth would win a bracelet in a non-hold'em event (the previous 11 bracelets had come in that discipline). He then silenced the "disbelievers" by winning the $2,500 Seven Card Razz event. Today, three years and two bracelets later, he has again proved that he is amongst the best Razz players in the world.
"I'm dedicating this," said Hellmuth to the crowd after his victory. "I lost a friend about a month ago, Dave Goldberg. I'm going to give this bracelet to his wife and kids. This is for Dave Goldberg. Goldy, I love you."
He also received $271,105 in prize money for his victory, which brings his total WSOP earnings to an incredible $12,512,8000! He has 109 cashes at the WSOP and 52 are final table appearances.

Shaun Deeb, fresh off of his first WSOP bracelet win in $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship, just missed out on making back-to-back official final tables. Deeb finished in 9th place, bubbling the official final table for $26,557.
Congratulation to the one and only Phil Hellmuth. 14th Bracelet it's something, for me it's always a pleasure to watch how he act at the poker table. Now is much richer than before with a beautiful prize 271.105$. Total earning of Phil is (12,787,262$) not with 14th bracelet and Ivy who is on second place with 10 bracelet has (6,547,630$) unbelievable, double.
I was fairly certain that Helmuth would pop up in this series and win another bracelet and it will be no surprise if he doesn't win another later on.Just goes to show that the older players who continue to learn and keep up can still compete at this level.
G'day mates I think it is GREAT the Phil has won another tournament. I personally always enjoyed watching the so-called bad boy of poker. I loved it every time him had one of his blow ups and would rant and raze at other players. He was always so entertaining. Ronin
This guy is a huge player, and even he cames from years a ago in the poker world, he still playing on the high level on the game. For my opinion, i don't like to much Phill Hellmuth, but he just shows time and time again that is a complete player and can figth and play against all the players in every game on poker. Beside that i want to give a big congratulations for the 14th win, because is hard to win much has he won.
Yeah one of my good players on my notebook that i tend to follow, very happy with it i like him because of his melt down and so on , it is so funny check in on youtube and all, anyway good luck at the tables if you playing , also keep posting those news and hopefully he will win more and so on, cheers going to call it a night as got to work and some study to finished, cheers peace out guys!
well if I played EVERY WSOP tourney EVERY year, i would still have 0 bracelets and probably 0 final table appearances, well maybe 1-2 visits just to see how things smell there... now what i'm trying to say here is that phill hermouth can sleep safely knowing that pochui is not after his record of 14 bracelets.
I wonder how many guys got called IDIOTS, specially if they were from europe EUROPEAN IDIOT he has a game no doubt, u dont win 14 bracelets on luck alone, but whats missing from his character is admitting he was wrong, coz when he miss reads a situation, hes off like in light years, and every time its the other player fault, and that makes him an idiot "Cant believe this idiot, call my raise with T4, and got lucky, and he thinks he knows how to play poker, what an idiot, honey i can believe this european idiots, i bet u wont make it another 20 min buddy, what an idiot" but hes very entertaining when his on tilt
He admitted he had rage issues a long time ago... and he has worked on it with a psychiatrist I think lol. He isn't as bad as he used to be nowadays.
I agree that he's a brat but he got lucky early in his career and made the most of it. He managed his money well enough to keep playing all these years (sponsors help, but still), A lot of players don't have that discipline He's a pretty unique dude, and he's really funny to watch when he's on tilt. Much more entertaining to watch than Scott Seiver
Sometimes he could cry a river like a real bitch (I mean brat!) over some bad beat, and I know nobody likes Phil Ivey or Isildur for their personalities alone. But when Phil have a bad read on a situation he just can't admit the mistake he made, he always go on nitpicking something else. Ridiculous.
When he was doing his spoiled brat routine it was pretty annoying and sometimes very disrespectful to the other players at the table but these days he seems to be enjoying poker more and no one can dispute that he is one of the all time greats in poker....and not just hold em either.
I doubt it was a routine - it was him all the time. I mean yeah, he is probably saying that he did this to threw everybody off with their rythm, but beyond the obvious annoyance I don't think the rest bothered much - except the outside audience like me, who is hating these kinda theatre stuff in a poker table even if it's coming from the personality and not some well practiced mannerism.
