With 13 World Series of Poker gold bracelets to his name, poker pro Phil Hellmuth is still working to add to his collection. Participating in the 2014 WSOP Asia Pacific $2,200 AUD Six-Max No-Limit Hold’em event this week, Hellmuth has now made the final table and could earn his 14th bracelet by the weekend.
The event is taking place in Melbourne Australia at the Crown Casino and will see six players return to the felt tomorrow to continue game play. Final table play will begin just after 12pm tomorrow and players in the US can stream the action live, as it happens, from the WSOP website.
Hellmuth currently sits 5th in chips with 266,500. There are only six players at the table so he only holds more chips than Bruno Politano, who is the short stack at 65,000. 4th is Yu Kurita who is just behind Michael Tran in 3rd. Alexander Antonios is 2nd in chips while Steven Zhou is sitting pretty in first. Zhou holds 315,000 chips which is only a few thousand over the majority of the field, so technically, it is anyone’s game.
If Hellmuth can pull out the win, he will have earned his 14th World Series of Poker gold bracelet and become the third player to earn a gold bracelet on three different continents, as according to CardPlayer. Many are certainly rooting for Hellmuth to earn the win and continue to dominate with the massive amount of WSOP bracelets to his name.
In May of this year, Hellmuth spoke to PokerNews and discussed his career, stating that he would like to earn twenty four WSOP bracelets. He wants to hold a total of 24 bracelets and win another WSOP Main Event. If he earns the win during this weekend, the Poker Brat will be one step closer to earning his WSOP bracelet goal.
