Phil Hui

The Omaha 8 tournament got a little tougher before the first break. Phil Hui was already a successful player by any measure before he went to Las Vegas this summer for the WSOP. He already owned a bracelet and four WSOPC rings along with four SHRP titles (the lastest coming this spring during the Poker Showdown).

Then Hui bought into the $50K WSOP Poker Players Championship field, one of the toughest and most prestigious tournaments you’ll find, and conquered it. He was the last player standing over an incredibly tough field that featured top players from start to finish playing an eight-game mix. Hui earned more than $1,000,000 for his second bracelet and the rest of the world found out what we knew in the states. Hui is one of the best.
