Phil Hellmuth wins Pittsburgh Poker Open

13-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth (GPI No. 174) won the Pittsburgh Poker Open on Sunday, his first event victory the live tournament poker circuit in over a year. Hellmuth picked up $54,000 for the win, his first since winning a side event at EPT London in 2013.

Hellmuth got the best of David Baker heads-up for the title while Matt Glantz, ranked #20 on the GPI World Poker Rankings, and Joseph Couden would also make the final four in the event that was being presented as part of the Poker Night in America cash game taping which took place a few days before the Main Event. The cash game will air at a later date on the CBS Sports Network.

While Hellmuth hasn't earned too many scores in 2014, he has managed to stay ranked in the Top 300 following a strong summer at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Hellmuth would earn a total of 7 cashes, earning over $200K over his summer at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, including a trio of Top 10 finishes. Hellmuth fell short of bracelet #14, finishing 2nd to Ted Forrest in the $1,500 buy-in Seven Card Razz event at the start of the 45th WSOP.

The win on Sunday was Hellmuth's 54th of his career which now spans a remarkable 27 years. His first ever win? He earned it in a prelim event at the 1988 Pot of Gold at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada. The Poker Brat would earn $17,500 for his efforts on that faithful day in April 1988.

On a side note, it sure looks this was a great week to be Phil Hellmuth. Tournament victory, ESPN commentary and a brand new Corvette Stingray???
