On Saturday morning, at the $2,000 NL Hold'em event, Phil Hellmuth broke his record 70th World Series of Poker cash. However, the Poker Brat could not make it to that 12th bracelet during this event.
Hellmuth busted out with under 30 players remaining, however he remains as motivated as ever. "The other day I was complaining that it's such a grind and blah, blah, blah. Maybe because I finished 23rd and they paid 21. But I woke up the next day, I meditated, I ran, I lifted and I said to myself 'it's an honor and a pleasure to be here.'
"I'm living the dream. I get to play in poker tournaments at the World Series of Poker, and number one, most people can't afford them. Number two; it's a fabulous position to be in, in life, because I get the chance to break records every day."
Hellmuth also talked about his edge in the game saying that his biggest strength is reading other players.
"I do things that no one else does and they don't understand it, but it's all about having the best hand at the right time."
