Phil Hellmuth Excelling in 2010 World Series of Poker‘s Phil Hellmuth finished seventh place in Event #41 of the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP), a $1,500 Omaha Hi/Low Eight or Better tournament this week. Hellmuth fell short of grabbing his 12th bracelet – which would have been his first in a non-Hold’em event – and silencing detractors who were on hand ridiculing and hissing him during Thursday’s final table.

But it wasn’t intended to be for the 11-time bracelet winner. Hellmuth held on with a short stack for most of the day and ultimately went down at the hands of John Gottleib. Characteristically, Hellmuth showed passion after his elimination, but was gracious in defeat, shaking the hands of the six remaining players before he left the ESPN final able arena.

Regardless of the regular criticism from his peers about his game, Hellmuth remains to make deep runs in events with large fields.
