More than 3/4 of the way through the 2015 World Series of Poker schedule and Phil Hellmuth is really starting to distance himself from the rest of the BRACELET RACE field.
Hellmuth made another deep run in the $2,500 No Limit Hold’em event earlier this week, finishing 16th for $15,215. It was his fourth cash of the summer and pushed his 2015 WSOP earnings over the $300,000 mark. To date he has entered 22 of the first 53 events and made Day 2 a total of 12 times.
While some may not want the absence of one player to be part of the narrative this summer, it is hard to ignore the fact that Phil Ivey has yet to make an appearance. The expectation was that he would show up at the $50,000 Poker Players Championship earlier this week but that was not the case. Negreanu has since told people that he believes the ten-time WSOP bracelet winner will play the $111,111 One Drop High Roller starting Sunday.
The most active player in the BRACELET RACE this summer has been Daniel Negreanu and this week he got within reaching distance of his seventh WSOP bracelet. Negreanu finished third in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo event for $113,062. Despite playing what most would consider a limited schedule this summer, Negreanu has played 27 events and finished Day 1 with chips 11 times but has only managed three cashes.
Erik Seidel might have the most impressive stats of the bunch so far. Though he’s only played 12 events, he has made Day 2 five times, and Day 3 four times. His 4th place finish in the $10,000 No Limit Deuce to Seven event is his only final table of the summer and he’s racked up $103,070 in winnings.
Arriving to the WSOP late this year, Vanessa Selbst has only played eight events but she has managed to make it through the first day of play three times and has one Day 3 appearance. Selbst’s two cashes have earned her just $7,155 in earnings while she’s spent over $17,000 in buy-ins.
