Phil Hellmuth Guns For His 14th World Series of Poker Bracelet In Australia

The 'Poker Brat' Headlines Final Six In WSOP APAC $2,200 AUD Six-Max No-Limit Hold'em Event


Poker Hall of Famer Phil Hellmuth is only five players away from winning his 14th World Series of Poker bracelet and extending his lead as the all-time leader in WSOP titles.

Hellmuth is currently fifth in chips of six players remaining in the 2014 WSOP Asia Pacific $2,200 AUD six-max no-limit hold’em event at the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia. This is the ‘Poker Brat’s’ 108th cash and 51st final table finish in a WSOP event, and he is also looking at becoming only the third player to win gold bracelets on three continents, with Daniel Negreanu and Jeff Lisandro having already achieved that unique distinction.

Also of note at the final table in 2014 November Niner Bruno Politano. The Brazilian is by far the shortest stack of the remaining six, but is still in with a chance to win a bracelet before returning to Las Vegas in November to play for the title of WSOP main event champion.

The final table gets underway at 12:10 p.m local time on Saturday, October 11th. There will be a live stream of the action available at beginning at approximately 3:10 p.m. EST for American fans.
