When people think of poker and its bad boys, one name comes to mind immediately. Although he is a charitable guy away from the tables, the antics of the leading WSOP bracelet holder Phil Hellmuth Jr. has earned him the nickname “Poker Brat” for a reason.

Having won his 11th bracelet in 2007, Hellmuth is the youngest player to book this many wins (close behind are Johnny Chan and Doyle Brunson with 10 bracelets) at the WSOP and he continues to improve on that record. Hellmuth currently holds the record for the most WSOP cashes (68) and most final tables (41).

Arguably the game’s best No Limit Hold’em tournament player. Hellmuth has done well for himself, earning over $10,901,494 throughout the course of his professional poker career and millions more by being UltimateBet’s top player representative.

Having learned the game while growing up in Madison, Wisconsin, Hellmuth started taking the game seriously while playing Hold’em at the University of Wisconsin’s student union. Things went so well for Hellmuth that he dropped out of school after three years. Unfortunately things didn’t go well at first for the future pro and he had to return home to work as a field laborer for a spell when his initial trips to Las Vegas proved futile. According to Hellmuth’s Web site, he made ten trips to Vegas before he finally found a way to win.

Although Hellmuth may be considered a bad boy at the tables because of his mannerisms and his tendency for blow-ups, Hellmuth is one of poker’s more charitable individuals. He often participates in charity tournaments for fallen police officers, firefighters and Heifer International, a group that benefits developing villages in countries whose economies are struggling. Often benefiting people in some of the world’s poorest countries, the group provides livestock, poultry and grain.
