Another round of WSOP action took place this weekend and in amongst the latest batch of winners was a dose of heartache for poker's most emotional player: Phil Hellmuth.
After making his way past a tough field of pros in the NLHE Six-Max event, Hellmuth could only muster an eighth place finish. Despite announcing his arrival at the final table to his 194,000 Twitter followers by writing "14" multiple times the American pro wasn't able to set a new record after running into Davidi Kitai. Seemingly unaware that the Belgian is in fact a Triple Crown winner and not some dumb "Frenchman", Hellmuth wasn't shy about berating the eventual winner, saying "you have no chance to win sir". However, it seems his criticisms only spurred on Kitai as he went on to best Gordon Vayo heads-up to take the title and $508,640 whilst Hellmuth had to settle for another near miss. Also bagging bracelets this weekend was a selection of relative unknowns as well as pros including Dan Heimiller and George Danzer. Heimiller was the first to secure a victory after wading through more than 4,400 players in the Seniors Championship to bank $627,462.Danzer's route to victory was a little less arduous but no less tough as he managed to overcome the likes of Brian Hastings and Yuval Bronshtein in Event #18 ($10,000 - Seven Card Razz) to pick up a WSOP bracelet and $294,792.
