Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Poker Brat Update

Phil Hellmuth (Event # 40) Looking to Make Some Moves On Day 1 of the $1,000 NLH Tourney

With the 2011 edition of the WSOP becoming a showcase for Phil Hellmuth to show of his non-Hold'em bona fides, we thought we'd let you know he's faring in the game that made him a household name.

Although his table has been broken at least twice, forcing Hellmuth to retune his famous reading abilities to a new group of players, he now sits with 7,500 chips. While his stack is a bit below the average at this point in Day 1, with Hellmuth's patient style and sound strategy, he is by no means short-stacked.
