It was Phil Hellmuth's son Philip who presented the 47-year-old American with his record-breaking 12th bracelet.

Phil Hellmuth has two sons with his wife Katherine and one of the boys helped his old man win another bracelet for an already filled arm. 

After the record-breaking win Phil Hellmuth revealed that his son Philip was flown in specifically to bring daddy good luck. 

"I've always preformed well when my parents are in town. They've seen like eight or nine bracelets out of the twelve. When they show up - it's like I wanna impress them," says Hellmuth and continues: 

"But I couldn't get my parents to come out the last two or three days…So I went the opposite direction. I told my wife, 'fly Phillip in,' this morning I said, 'fly him in I have the chip lead. I think if he's here I might just win it.

And to have him come here, it means so much to me as a father."
