Could The Poker Brat Triumph?

by | Published: Thursday, June 30th, 2011

While many have focused on Phil Hellmuth losing out to John Juanda and Eric Rodawig, The Poker Brat is currently in position to take Player of the Year honors.

Phil Hellmuth has managed to cash four times so far in the 2011 World Series of Poker, taking about $530,000 in prize money for his efforts. The WSOP has been more about the achievements than the money for Phil, though, and it seems he is just a hair’s breadth away from winning his twelfth WSOP bracelet.

Losing against John Juanda is no shame at all, and Hellmuth came in with an incredibly shortstack when going heads up against Eric Rodawig. While more impressive achievements than two second place finishes at the same WSOP have been recorded, it is still not an easy task and Phil is perhaps fittingly ranked second in the current Player of the Year rankings.

While Hellmuth has strong competition from the current leader Ben Lamb, it seems like Lamb is more of a PLO specialist than anything. A couple of PLO events are still left to run, but Hellmuth is looking a good chance in The Poker Player’s Championship and final table finish in that along with another cash just might put him over the top.
