Event #55: $50,000 Poker Player's Championship

Hellmuth's First Seven-Figure Score

SantanaBandana • Level 27: 60,000-120,000, 30,000 ante

Believe it or not, this is Phillip Hellmuth Jr.'s first career seven-figure score. Despite winning 11 World Series of Poker Bracelets, his largest cash to date was the $755,000 he earned for winning the 1989 Main Event. He only has three other cashes of half a million or more - he won a $1,500 no limit hold'em bracelet event in 2007 for $637,254, a $1,000 no limit hold'em bracelet event in 2006 for $631,863 and he received $500,000 for winning the NBC National Heads-Up Championship in 2005.

Seven figures is nice, but we're sure Hellmuth has his eyes on something more important - that elusive 12th bracelet.
