While the WSOP Championship final table has yet to play, technically the last WSOP event concluded with Maureen Feduniak finishing in second place, taking home $108, 564.
Event #45, a $1500 NLHE, was the last event on the long WSOP schedule - and the last chance for Phil Hellmuth to win his 11th WSOP bracelet this year. Currently Hellmuth, Johnny Chan, and Doyle Brunson are all tied with 10th bracelets a piece. And you know Hellmuth would prefer not to share top honors. Hellmuth came close - he finished in third place, winning $53,945, behind bracelet winner Anders Hedriksson and Feduniak. It was not a bad little payday for Phil, but at this point, I'm guessing the money wasn't his goal. All in all, Hellmuth has logged in a stunning performance this year; winning bracelet #10 and cashing in 8 WSOP events. Including his bracelet event, Phil made 4 final tables this year.
Together the Feduniaks haven't had a bad run either. Maureen also cashed in another WSOP $1500 NLHE event. And Maureen's husband Bob cashed in the main event and the $2000 Omaha hi/lo this year.
