But the guy is a poker legend for a reason.
He won his 15th - that's right, 15th - World Series of Poker bracelet when he took down the field in the $5,000 No Limit Hold 'Em event (30 minute levels):

He'll also take home $485,082 and, per WSOP.com, he's made over $14 million in career earnings.
He spent some of his post-winning time retweeting the congrats that came his way:
He may be a love him or hate him character but no one can deny that @phil_hellmuth is the greatest Tournament poker player in history. Congratulations on number 15
