There's now a World Series of Poker record out there that even Phil Hellmuth can't break, although it used to be his anyway.

With his heads-up victory over Russian Ivan Demidov early Tuesday, Denmark's Peter Eastgate became the youngest main event champion in history at 22 years old.

The 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Hellmuth won the main event in 1989 when he was 24. In addition to his first WSOP bracelet, Eastgate pocketed $9.1 million.
