Event #46: $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Hellmuth Riding the Rockets

• Taso 6

Pot-Limit Omaha

Phil Hellmuth put in his last 2,000 chips, calling all in against a Brandon Shack-Harris pot sized bet with the board reading {q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Spades}.

Hellmuth held {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and his aces held against Shack-Harris' {j-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{4-Spades} on a {10-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} runout.

Limit Hold'em

Hellmuth dropped a few chips in the final PLO hand, then folded the blinds of the first few hands at Limit Hold'em.

He managed to get them back with {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} on the button, getting some action from Melissa Burr, who actually took the lead from the small blind as the {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{3-Spades} board was revealed. She did check the {k-Spades} river, but called and mucked when Hellmuth bet and rolled over the rockets.
