WSOP Gold Bracelets: 14
WSOP Earnings: $12,512,800

Hellmuth has been dominating the World Series of Poker since his victory in the 1989 WSOP Main Event at the age of 24 years old.

Now aged 50, Hellmuth still has what it takes to bring home the gold and is determined to score his 15th WSOP bracelet at the 2015 World Series of Poker.

His shift from playing large fields of players in Holdem events to winning different poker game types with less players has really paid off. The competition is still tough as he is competing against players who specialize in Razz.

Hellmuth accumulated a solid chip lead ranking in 3rd place by the end of Day 2 and defeated Mike Gorodinsky in a grueling heads-up battle to win the title.

His last two bracelets were won in the 2012 WSOPE Main Event and 2012 WSOP Event 18: Seven Card Razz.
