Phil Hellmuth STILL Only Has 9 Bracelets
Phil Hellmuth, who after finishing second 11 days ago to Jeff Cabanillas in Event #9, continues to only have 9 bracelets after finishing sixth in Event #24 ($3,000 Omaha hi/lo).
The event was dominated by Scott Clements (at right), who you don’t want to ever cross, because he will kill you. That’s one intense looking dude. Clements banks $301,175 for the win and takes his first bracelet.
