From our Made Hand Poker blog by Mark Scalia:
Phil Hellmuth Jr. won his record-breaking 11th World Series of Poker bracelet June 11, winning Event #15, a $1,500 No-Limit Texas Hold’em tournament.
With the win he broke the three-way tie of 10 WSOP bracelets between himself, Johnny Chan and Doyle Brunson.
Along with the bracelet Hellmuth took home $637,254.
Also, in a shocking move, PokerStars landed one of the most marketable and talented poker players in the world, Daniel Negreanu.
Negreanu, who recently left Full Contact Poker, now joins a team that includes four former WSOP Main Event Champions.
PokerStars is already currently the largest online poker room with tens of thousands of players at any given moment.
