Phil is arguably the greatest Texas Hold 'Em player in history and with
eleven World Series of Poker victories and more than fifty tournament
titles, Hellmuth is well on his way to cementing his poker legacy, one
that began shortly after his graduation from the University of
Wisconsin. In fact, his laundry list of achievements in 1989 began at
the tender age of 24 with his first World Series of Poker title, the
youngest person to ever accomplish such a feat. He has since amassed dozens of major tournament wins internationally, including wins at The World's Biggest Seven-card Stud Tournament in Austria and Late Night
Poker in Great Britain.
After all of his success, it is no surprise that in 1996, Hellmuth's
poker-playing peers voted him the "best all-around tournament poker
player in the word" and Oakley eyewear and EA Sports call him a "poker icon." Hellmuth has won more than 50 tournaments, including winning an astounding ten World Series of Poker bracelets.
