Phil Hellmuth Look-A-Like Contest

25th September, 2008

Phil Hellmuth has brought his ego to a new level, by offering up 2,000 to the man or woman who most looks like the Poker Brat. The person who is chosen in the contest will not only receive the cash prize but will also join Hellmuth and twelve models as the poker professional enters the casino to play in the main event.

It seems that every big tournament Hellmuth plays in he has to pull off some kind of stunt and make a grand entrance that tops the one before. He is currently chasing his 12th bracelet, which is why he will have 12 models at his side, and will have a great opportunity to capture it at the WSOPE main event.

I have a great chance to win my 12th bracelet at the WSOPE and break yet another world-record, Hellmuth said. I am the best poker player in the world, and while I dont have to prove anything to the poker community, it would still be the greatest personal accomplishment to be the first to get 12.

Hellmuth currently holds the record for most gold bracelets, at 11. He also holds the record for most WSOP cashes, at 69. Theres no question that Hellmuth has reason to think he is the best in the world, but for many the whole thing can get a little tiresome.

The WSOPE main event will begin on Saturday, the 27th of Septemeber, and is a 10,000 buy in tournament expected to have a pretty hefty prize pool. Two bracelets have already been claimed and there are only two more to go.
