I don't dislike many poker players, but Hellmuth is by FAR my least favorite. The only other people that bother me are the people that scream at the top of their lungs when they win a pot. I can't wait to watch Hellmuth crash & burn this year.
Big Hands and Storylines:
Phil Hellmuth Eliminated in 45th Place
It’s official: This year’s World Series of Poker main event winner will not be a former champion.
After watching his stack slowly chip away, Phil Hellmuth finally made his stand by moving all in for 405,000 from under the gun. Hellmuth’s shove marked the first time today that Hellmuth was at risk for all of his chips. The action folded to Andrew Rosskamm who called. As the spectators rose to their feet, Hellmuth turned over AQ to Rosskamm’s JJ. As the shouts of encouragement came, the flop fell K43, failing to give Hellmuth a pair. As the dealer prepared to deal the turn card, several shouts of turn card requests from audience members filled the ESPN featured table area. Just as someone had requested, the 10 fell on the turn. This card gave Hellmuth several ways of winning the pot on the river. The chips would go his way if the river card was any ace, jack, queen, or heart. The crowd silenced as the 2 fell on the river.
Hellmuth earned $154,400 for his 45th place finish, bringing his WSOP career total earnings to $6,008,145, including 11 bracelet victories. After politely shaking the hands of his tablemates, Hellmuth exited the tournament area with a storm of obscenities, cursing his inability to “catch a break.”
