Alex Antonios Wins 2014 World Series of Poker Asia Pacific $2,200 AUD Six-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Phil Hellmuth Falls Just Short of 14th Bracelet With Fourth-Place Finish


All eyes were on Phil Hellmuth at the final table of the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia Pacific $2,200 AUD no-limit hold’em six-max event as he went for his record 14th WSOP gold bracelet. In the end the “Poker Brat” fell short, placing fourth for $34,247.

Instead it was Australian local Alex Antonios who emerged victorious, topping the field of 243 entries to take home his very first gold bracelet and $113,353.

“It’s obviously tough to win a bracelet,” said the 25-year-old after play ended. “People like Phil have been around for 25 years and have only won 13. I really lucked out on this one and it may never happen again, but I would definitely like another shot at a bracelet.”

The cash-game professional from Syndey not only had to contend with Hellmuth at the six-handed final table but also 2014 WSOP November Niner Bruno Politano. The Brazilian entered the final day with a very short stack, however, and ended up not posing much of a threat as he was eliminated first in sixth place for $17,435.

Here is a look at the payouts and POY points awarded at this final table:
