Phil Hellmuth is fresh off winning his 14th-career WSOP gold bracelet. He took down the $10,000 Razz Championship at the 2015 WSOP to scoop bracelet #14 along with a $271,105 payday. Following his victory over the 109-player field, Hellmuth dedicated his big win to his friend and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Goldberg.
