The most decorated player in the history of the World Series of Poker has done it again. On Sunday, October 17, with his wife, friends, and several dozen fans surrounding the PokerGO WSOP main stage at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, Phil Hellmuth captured an unprecedented 16th WSOP gold bracelet.

    Hellmuth won Event #31: $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw, a gold bracelet he said he had been chasing since the 1980s. Hellmuth defeated Jake Schwartz in heads-up play, finishing atop the 272-entry field to win $84,951.

    “I’ve wanted a deuce-to-seven bracelet ever since the 1980s because it was the coolest bracelet to win,” Hellmuth said. “It was the one tournament that Chip [Reese] and Doyle [Brunson] showed up for. All of the big-name poker players, such as Billy Baxter – all the champions showed up for that one tournament. It was a $10K with rebuys, so they would be in for $50,000. I wanted this bracelet so badly.”
