Phil Hellmuth Laments Falling Short of 100th WSOP Cash

Aiming for his 100th WSOP cash, Phil Hellmuth was denied of achieving the milestone and finished in 24th place in Event #3 at the WSOPE in Paris.

The top 16 finishers were guaranteed to add to their live tournament winnings in the €5,300 Mixed Max event that is still ongoing. But the “Poker Brat” will not be among them and took to Twitter to voice his frustration over his play.

“In room Feeling depressed…I shoulda played better today!” tweeted Hellmuth. “I’m in the zone & I had the chip stack to get my historic #WSOPCash100.”

The all-time leader in WSOP bracelets apparently didn’t stay depressed very long. He received a tremendous amount of support that got him to focus once again on his goals.

“My Twitter friends, my wife, and my boy @Chamath all tell me to count my blessings, relax, regroup, and ManUp! Now in #WSOPE #4: PLOmaha,” Hellmuth tweeted.

Event #4, €1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha, won’t be the one in which the Poker Brat achieves the coveted 100th WSOP cash either. The final table is set in that event and Hellmuth did not make a trip to the cashier cage. But pot-limit Omaha has never been his game anyway.

“Sat down in #WSOPE Event 5: €2,000 NLHold’em. Feeling strong!! Great sign: I know what to do. Now I need walk the walk & maintain focus,” tweeted the 13-time WSOP champ.

Hellmuth is still alive in that tourney with 7,600 in chips, according to a recent Pokerlistings update. We here at PokerUpdate are rooting for Phil to finish in-the-money and take down that 100th WSOP cash.
