Poker legend Phil Hellmuth created history last week by capturing his 17th World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet at Event #72: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty. He cashed an impressive $803,818 along with the bounties for his top finish. The victory led to his fortune from live poker tournaments standing at $29,794,008.
‘The Poker Brat’ recently revealed on his Twitter account that he owns only one out of his 17 prestigious bracelets. Surprising, right?! Hellmuth shared that he has given away all his bracelets to his family and friends. The only coveted piece of jewellery he has kept for himself is the one he won at the 1989 WSOP Main Event Bracelet.

His fans applauded him for his gesture and poured a lot of appreciation in the comments section of the tweet.
