2012 WSOP-Europe: €10,000 No-Limit Hold'em

WSOP, 2012-10-08, by Ozone

Say what you want about him, but there is zero question that Phil Hellmuth has a knack for winning WSOP bracelets.

The 'Poker Brat' recently won what is arguably the biggest title of his career outside of his 1989 WSOP Main Event victory. Hellmuth triumphed over a field of 420 runners in the €10,000 buy-in WSOP-Europe Main Event in Cannes, France. The win resulted in a $1.3 million payday which moves him into 3rd place on the all-time poker winnings list behind Antonio Esfandiari and Phil Ivey. The win also extended Hellmuth's WSOP record for most bracelets won. He now has 13.

Hellmuth beat out Ukranian Sergii Baranov heads-up for the bracelet. Baranov, whose previous largest cash in a live tournament was $98,000, won $825,000 for second. Third place went to Frenchman Stephane Albertini ($552,000).

The remainder of the final table finishers are as follows:

4th: Joseph Cheong ($381,000)
5th: Christopher Brammer ($270,000)
6th: Paul Tedeschi ($194,000)
7th: Stephane Girault ($142,000)
8th: Jason Mercier ($110,000)
9th: Timothy Adams ($86,000)
