1. Hellmuth is 7/9 entering the final day of the 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship at the WSOP. Will he get bracelet #12?

    I don't think it's gonna happen, although I'm sure WSOP officials would love it. Richard Ashby, Joe Cassidy, David "Bakes" Baker, Steve Sung, Greg Raymer, Nick Schulman, and John Juanda are all in the mix as well. Too many top-tier players for Hellmuth, a Hold'em guy, to contend with.

  2. Doubtful with that cast. GL The Takeover.

  3. NP, Hellmuth can fold his way down to 0 chips and then trap em!

  4. I"m rooting for Joe Cassidy, great player, humble, and has no bracelet

  5. Watching Raymer on the live feed after everyone has left the rail and moved to a table of 8 on the main stage. He's just sitting there alone, on his phone, looking like the game's passed him by.. I'm sure he's actually doing something really stand-up like replying to fan tweets..

  7. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I could not care less about Helmuth's 12th, or any bracelet. I know the avg poker follower is interested, however, I have no interest. I hope Bakes takes it down to rep some internet players.

  10. The toughest final table he has ever faced for sure. I bet the boards say he just ran good instead of giving the guy a little credit. Is he outdated? Yes, but still impressive against this caliber of a final table.

  11. WOW Hellmuth still in with 4:1 chip lead 3 left.

  12. how long is the break?
    Add msc to Rail
  13. The break is 60 min

    I've been watching the live feed since the start of the day and Hellmuth has been playing freight-train aggro, loose and everytime he gets to a big showdown his opponent is whiffing.

    Aggression and luck down the stretch are two huge factors to tournament wins..

  14. Wow... It would be Hellmuth's first non-Hold'em bracelet and over a ridiculously tough final table.

    He has one live cash according to the Hendon Mob since last October.

  15. Don't like Phil much, but he's been playing really well this final table.

  16. Heads up with Juanda now. Both are fairly deep.

    I laughed when I read this:

    Juanda showed up , and Hellmuth could not beat it. He mumbled something about "playing for all the chips", then flashed as he tucked them under and mucked.

  20. maybe a dumb question but having not played a lot of 2-7 (and no single draw experience), how much skill is it in comparison to NLHE?

    obv in your opinion. seems like a lot of just straight up guessing and hoping but idk

  21. "After John Juanda took two at the draw and Hellmuth drew one, Hellmuth pushed out a bet of 250,000 into the pot. Juanda repopped Hellmuth, making it 650,000 total And Hellmuth folded a ten low face up.
    "F***king wheel!" exclaimed Hellmuth. "You beat a lot of seven draws, don't you JJ?"
    It was at this point that Hellmuth took his glasses and hat off and paced around the tournament area, throwing his arms up in the air.
    "If I pull a three or four, match over! No, I hit a ten and lose 250!"
    "You shouldn't have bet 250. Bet less." retorted Juanda with a smile.
    This hand brings Juanda up to 2,400,000 and Hellmuth down to 1,300,000."


    EDIT:
    And gg Hellmuth
    Juanda just shipped it.

  25. Oh man, here we go again. Hellmuth is in the final 18 of the Seven Card Stud High-Low Championship:

    http://www.wsop.com/tournaments/chip...=821&tid=11472

    He has a ridiculous amount of talent to get through, though: Seidel, Laak, Benyamine, Eslami, Ramos, Tehan, Chen, PearlJammer, Boosted J...

    The restart is at 3pm PT.

  27. sigh....hellmuth is just washed up isn't he. didn't he FT a WSOP event last year too???? 45th in the ME about 5 years ago....

    yep...game has passed him buy for sure. haters love to hate this guy, but......

    you know what i love...Jordan Young taking shots at PH in his "well" when he was #1 on-line pro in the world. "some of us still use PH top ten hands..." JY....who has zero bracelets that i know of, could ship the ME tomorrow and he may be the next big thing but still so far away from what PH has done, and in case nobody's noticed, is still doing.

    not bad for an also ran.....
