Phil Hellmuth has done it for a twelfth time. He took down WSOP Event 18: $2,500 Seven Card Razz for a $182,793 first-place prize, and another bracelet. Phil Hellmuth was already the leading bracelet winner at eleven, and failed to bring one home in 2011.

He won the tournament after a grueling heads up finish with Don Zewin. Don Zewin was the third place player in Phil Hellmuth first bracelet in 1989.
