No Bracelet Number 17 For Phil Hellmuth


Just a few hours ago, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 witnessed an intense heads-up battle between Phil Hellmuth and David Jackson. The poker community watched in anticipation as Hellmuth played to add a 17th WSOP bracelet to his long list of wins. Unfortunately for the poker legend, it was Jackson who ended up shipping Event #65: $3,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em.

Hosted at Bally’s and Paris in Las Vegas, the event boiled down to the final two players after three full days of play. Jackson clinched his second WSOP bracelet after wading through a field of 1,359 entries. The poker player had a pay day of $598,173 in first place finish while Hellmuth took home $369,698 in prize money as the runner-up.

Looks like it wasn’t the best time for Hellmuth who was fighting to secure his 17th WSOP bracelet. Despite this loss, he still holds the record for most WSOP bracelet wins with 16 WSOP bracelets in his kitty. On the other hand, this will surely be an epic winning moment for Jackson as he not only earned himself a second bracelet but also has the bragging rights of beating one of the world’s top poker pros in the process.

“I was just in my zone, honestly. I felt like I was going to win. I knew I was going to win. I felt like it was meant for me,” said Jackson about his win.

“This one [second bracelet] the feeling, it definitely feels much better. The online one was like a 700 or 777 event. So there were a lot of people, but it was an easier field. This one was a tougher field.” he added.

The $3,000 Freezeout event generated $3,628,530 in prize pool and saw top players like Daniel Negreanu, Maria Ho, and Justin Bonomo in the wide mix of players. However, they did not make it past Day 1 of the event. Among those who fell on Day 2 were 2019 WSOP Main Event winner Hossein Ensan, Koray Aldemir, and Martin Kabrhel.

Only 26 players made it to Day 2 which then quickly boiled down to ten. The final table of nine players were set when Julien Martini bubbled the FT thanks to Phil Hellmuth.

Final Hand

After Jeffrey Lo exited the table in third place, it was down to Hellmuth and Jackson to take the action forward. When heads-up began, Jackson had a 4:1 chip lead against Hellmuth but the stack sizes soon levelled up after the poker legend raked in a big pot with pocket aces. In the final hand, Jackson moved all0in with Ace-seven suited and Hellmuth also pooled in the rest of his 9,500,000 chips into the pot with King-Jack suited.

When the flop came Th 4s Th, Hellmuth was in favour of a double up. However, the 9s on the turn opened a straight draw for Jackson which he then completed on the Qd river. Thus, earning him the victory.
