Hellmuth Will Likely Play in One Drop Event
Phil Hellmuth has said that there’s “a good chance” that he will take part in the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop charity poker event. The eleven time WSOP bracelet holder says that he feels good and has picked up a few new tricks that he hopes will help him to succeed in the WOrld Series of Poker.
He has already entered his first event of this year, the $1,500 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Event #2, and has put in a good performance, surviving day one of the tournament with 44,600 chips, enough to put him in 24th place.
Hellmuth plans to take part in several events this year, and says that he is looking forward to facing off against Phil Ivey, who is returning to the felt after skipping a year in protest over the problems at Full Tilt poker last year.
The Poker Brat is looking for his 12th bracelet this year. Last year he performed well financially, netting three runner-up positions, but failing to take away a bracelet.
If all goes to plan, this year should be a true clash of the titans, with Ivey looking to close the gap on Hellmuth’s bracelet total, and Hellmuth entering as many events as possible in an attempt to smash records at this, the 43rd World Series of Poker.
