He holds the record for the most WSOP bracelets won by a single player, with his victories spanning various poker disciplines. His tournament successes include victories in No-Limit Hold'em, Limit Hold'em, Seven Card Stud, and other poker variants.

In addition to his tournament achievements, Hellmuth has authored several books on poker strategy, sharing his insights and experiences with aspiring players. His books, such as Play Poker Like the Pros and Phil Hellmuth's Texas Hold'em, have become popular resources for those looking to improve their poker skills.

Despite occasional controversies and clashes with fellow players, Hellmuth remains a dominant and influential figure in the poker world.
