Helmut after scandal has won the 15th champion bracelet of WSOP


This year the legendary American was the focus of attention on a World series again. Besides, at once three players were marked out by champion doubles. Great and awful Phil Helmut continues to stamp victories on a World series of poker, coming off competitors in the list of the most successful players of WSOP in the history. This year the 54-year-old American who became the winner of the Main event of a series in already far 1989 has won the 15th champion bracelet (against his closest persecutors — Doyle Branson, Phyl Ivy and Johnny Chen — on 10 bracelets). And I have made it by Phyl in a tournament on unlimited holdy in which, according to his colleagues, he precisely concedes in skill to many professionals. But such criticism of Phyl is answered by all with new victories. By the way, this time in MainEvent Helmut has appeared in the center of scandal. In one of distributions which took place at a television table his talk has influenced succession of events and indirectly promoted a departure from a tournament of one of players — Sam Campbell. After numerous discussions of this episode and impartial words to Phil, he has apologized for the behavior. Besides, Helmut has promised to pay to Sam bay-in in the Main WSOP tournament next year. The broad gesture was estimated even by the most ardent critics of the 15-fold champion of a World series. On WSOP-2018 at once three known pokerist managed to make a champion double — to win on two bracelets. Joe Kada, Sean Dibb and Justin Bonomo have caused a stir. And Kada who has won back at a final table of MainEvent-2018 and has taken the 5th place has decided not to rest on laurels, and "has fast dived" into a final tournament of a series and there became the best, having been ahead of more than 3,000 competitors. We will note also the fifth career bracelet of John Hennigan and phenomenal result of Michael Mizrakhi who has won prestigious PokerPlayersChampionship for the third time for career! And on the sum prize-winning, won for one series, this year wasn't equal to Justin Bonomo who, we will remind, I became the champion of a tournament with bay-other in one million dollars. And in total Justin has taken away $10,2 million from WSOP. Read also: Justin Bonomo has won a tournament of millionaires and has rewritten history
