Phil Hellmuth is leading the race to pick up the world player of the year title. Really though, Hellmuth may seem terribly obnoxious at times, but that’s only because he practically has the right to. This guy has won more WSOP bracelets in his lifetime than any other. Phil Hellmuth has had 81 cashes and has won over $11 million – that’s more than what anyone else in the industry can boast of. This guy’s no longer playing for the money folks. No, he has enough of that. What he wants are bracelets.

Phil Hellmuth attempted a major bluff at the recent poker tournament to the surprise of many. With only four players remaining and the blinds at $15,000/$30,000 plus a $5,000 per player ante, Mike, with $1.8 million in chips, opened for $70,000 under the gun with Ac-10d. Little-known pro Alan Sternberg, with $3.7 million in chips, made the call with 4-4 on the button.
The flop came Ks-9h-9c. Mike bet out $85,000 and got a call.
