Besim Hot won his first bracelet with a victory in 2019 WSOP Europe Event #10 €25,500 Mixed Games Championship. Hot outlasted a difficult final table and picked off Phil Hellmuth heads-up to win €385,911. Daniel Negreanu finished in sixth place, which propelled him into the overall lead in the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year race.

When you're hot, you're hot. Besim Hot had every Phil Hellmuth hater in the world cheering him on from the farthest corners of the globe during their heads-up duel in 2019 WSOP Europe Event #10 €25,500 Mixed Games Championship.

If aliens also watch poker, I'm sure there's a few Alpha Centurions who also think Hellmuth is a dickhead. If that's the case, the Greys were also rooting on Besim Hot. The Swiss player defeated Phil Hellmuth heads-up and outlasted a tough final table to win his first bracelet at the King's Casino in RozVegas durig the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe.

2019 WSOP Europe Event #10 €25,500 Mixed Games Championship attracted 45 players and a prize pool worth €1.07 million. Only the top seven places paid out, or the final table.

The €25,500 Mixed Games Championship final table included Phil Hellmuth, Besim Hot, Dzmitry Urbanovich, Benny Glaser, Julien Martini, Daniel Negreanu, and Alex Livingston.

Canada's Livingston hit the bricks in seventh place and secured himself a min-cash.

Negreanu went out guns blazing in sixth place. He missed out on another bracelet, but at least Phil Hellmuth didn't win one either. Negreanu went deep enough to garner enough POY points to ladder up two spots.

French pro Julien Martini bid his farewell in fifth place. British pro and multi-bracelet winner Benny Glasser saw his run come to an end in fourth place.

Dzmitry Urbanovich, the GOAT from Poland, squandered a shot at some bling. Urbanovich showed his versality by going deep in RozVegas in the Mixed Games Championship, but fell short of the mark when he bounced in third place. Urbanovich's elimination set up the finale between Phil Hellmuth and Besim Hot.

Love or hate Phil Hellmuth, he's always in the thick of things. Some of his success is part of the adage "90% of success is showing up!" and in Hellmuth's case, he's won so many bracelets because he constantly shows up to the WSOP to play in the gagillion events every year. Sure, he's an admitted attention whore, but you still have to play well enough to go deep and make a final table. Hellmuth knows all about heartache. You cannot win 15 pieces of bling without coming close and missing.

Sam Trickett whiffed the other night with a runner-up finish. He'd been chasing the elusive bling for a decade. Hellmuth will get another chance. He always does. And he'll win his 16th bracelet eventually and probably a 17th too. Why? Not because he's good, but because he cares the bracelets mean a shitload to him.

For a second place finish, Phil Hellmuth banked €238,509. He couldn't dodge bullets this time.

Hot banked approximately $428K in American bucks. Not too shabby, eh?

Hot previously final tabled the 2019 WSOPE €25K Short Deck event last week. He took fifth place for a score worth €166,258.

Nergeanu's deep run secured him first place on the Player of the Year leaderboard. Kid Poker jumped from third to first passing Shaun Deeb and former frontrunner Robert Campbell.
