Phil Hellmuth wins record 16th bracelet

He’s done it — Phil Hellmuth has finally secured his 16th bracelet after reaching four final tables this year. His latest victory comes in the $1,500 No Limit 2-7 Loweball Draw, where he outlasted a field of 272 entries over three days including Jake Schwartz ($52,502) heads-up, Chris Vitch ($36,387), Rep Porter ($25,661), Joshua Faris ($18,421) and Dario Sammartino ($13,463)

In addition to the bracelet, Hellmuth wins the first-place prize of $84,851.

In post-match comments, Hellmuth said the 16th bracelet was particularly sweet.

“I’ve wanted a deuce-to-seven bracelet ever since the 1980’s because it was the coolest bracelet to win. It’s the one tournament that Chip, Doyle, and all the big named poker players showed up for. I’ve been fighting so hard for this bracelet for so long, and my game has gotten better and better. I’ve worked really hard at it and I know all these tricks because I’ve been playing since the eighties. It feels really good.”
