Phil Hellmuth is arguably the most well known poker player in the world, let alone at this final table. The 12-time World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner will enter the final table fifth in chips with 10.925 million.
The 47-year-old poker pro from Palo Alto, California has a laundry list of cashes, but really broke onto the scene back in 1989 when he defeated Johnny Chan heads up to win the WSOP Main Event title for $755,000. Eleven more bracelets followed over the course of his career, including his 12th this year in the $2,500 Seven Card Razz event.
Last year, Hellmuth finished runner-up three separate times, including once to fellow final table player Brian Rast in the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship. Surely some redemption will be on his mind, but also will bracelet number 13 and over $18 million in first-place prize money.
