Phil Hui has been collecting WSOP cashes since 2013. He's an experienced mixed game player with nine top 10 finishes in bracelet events under his belt. However, his 10th surpasses the previous by order of magnitude as he's a debutant when it comes to cashing in the PPC.
Hui won his only bracelet in 2014 when he topped the $3,000 Omaha Hi-Lo event for $286,976. That has remained Hui's biggest cash to date, but he'd set a new high with a top-four finish today.
Four-time WSOP Circuit champ Hui has been in an excellent form this summer, having cashed in nine events. Hui has been chasing not only his second bracelet (his closest attempt came in the $2,500 Mixed Big Bet where he settled for the bronze) but also a POY leaderboard. He currently sits just outside of the top 20, and will be flirting with the top five with his addition from the PPC.
