I've posted before on my love of poker and how I would one day love to pick up autos of my favorite three players. Well, today I'm thrilled to be able to mark one of those three down as a success, as a while back I scored my first Phil Hellmuth signature for a great price, along with some trade bait from the same seller to take advantage of combined shipping discounts.
Hellmuth holds the all-time record of 13 WSOP bracelets, including a recent win at the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event, which is particularly historic as Hellmuth is now the only player to ever win the Main Event in both the U.S. and Europe. Hellmuth is my second favorite player, ever so slightly behind Gus Hansen. Hellmuth is the player I admire the most though. His auto marks just my fourth poker John Hancock.
