With the exception of his first one, Phil Hellmuth has given away every WSOP bracelet that he's won to family members and close friends.
Phil Hellmuth is one of the biggest names in poker - if not the biggest. Perhaps best known for holding a record 13 World Series of Poker bracelets, but he also holds the records for most World Series cashes (68) and for most final tables (41). His record of youngest person to win the WSOP (at 24) also stood for nineteen years.
Hellmuth was born in Madison, Wisconsin and attended the University there for three years before dropping out to pursue poker full-time. He is considered a veteran of the game, and as such has written 52 newspaper columns a year since 1998. Entitled 'Hand of the Week', Phil's column offers poker lessons and advice, and chronicles the most memorable poker hands and legendary games. He has made numerous television appearances as a host as well as a player, and boasts his own Poker Brat online clothing store.
Phil Hellmuth has a breathtaking net worth, with live tournament winnings contributing nearly $11 million!
Hellmuth has earned the nickname "The Poker Brat" or simply "The Brat" thanks to his often ungracious, whiny behaviour when things don't go his way.
