13 | Poker Brat wins big in Europe

Phil-Hellmuth

Poker superstar Phil Hellmuth certainly enjoyed his time in Cannes back in 2012. The Poker Brat left the French Riviera with the WSOP Europe Main Event title, winning WSOP gold for the 13th time of his career. The Main Event final table included Joseph Cheong, Christopher Brammer, Paul Tedeschi and Jason Mercier.

Hellmuth would need to wait three years to add his record-extending 14th bracelet. He won #14 this summer in Las Vegas, defeating Mike Gorodinsky heads-up in the Seven Card Stud Championship event.
