Palo Alto, California‘s Phil Hellmuth has won more World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets (14) than anyone, yet has never won a World Poker Tour (WPT) event. Hellmuth, who played once again as a Shooting Star at the tournament, which means the player who knocks him out earns a bounty of $2,500 and gets a signed T-shirt, was eliminated by veteran poker pro Justin Liberto, who tabled a monstrous four of a kind (quad kings) to eliminate the Poker Brat. On his final hand he had pocket queens but got knocked out by Andy Seth, whom Hellmuth called “this crazy aggressive kid with ace-jack.” […] he walked a few steps from the table, fell to his knees and put his head in his hands as he dropped to the ground. Because he’d been designated as a Shooting Star, Hellmuth had to sign a T-shirt for Seth, which he did without complaint. Hellmuth plays fewer tournaments these days and said it would be especially gratifying to win the Shooting Star, not just to get his name engraved on the WPT Champions Cup but because the San Jose tourney is a classic with a ‘huge field.’
