Hellmuth 12 199x300
Phil Hellmuth finally took down his 12th WSOP bracelet last night by winning the $2,500 Razz Event.   This was going down while the "Tiger Woods of Poker", Phil Ivey, was going after his 9th over in the $10k PL Hold'em Event. In the end, Hellmuth continued to add to his career total while Ivey just missed out.   Thinking about it, if Ivey is the "Tiger Woods of Poker", wouldn't that make Hellmuth Jack Nicklaus? Think about it.
