Phil Helmut is everywhere. I don't know about the real statistics, but i believe he must look like one of those poker ghosts, he enters almost all big live poker action and he goes far in a lot of them. Even if he doesn't win (he happens to win some) he reaches the final table or the better paid places a lot of times. I know many consider him the leader of the top 5 best poker players nowadays, but i used not to put him on this list and now i defenetly have to do it, i read his name everywhere!

The final 4 is now determined and there are no big surprises, it's Brandon Cantu, Roger Hairabedian, Jonathan Aguiar and Faraz Jaka. At this point i guess my choice to win this tournament is Roger Hairabedian because of his solid run in WSOPE so far and the fact that he is 2nd in chips at the moment.
Brandon Cantu, Faraz Jaka and Jonathan Aguiar for tha last 3 . Phil will bust out soon after they resume, his mental games will f... him up like most of the last tournaments he participated in. He should work on it more since he s the best player on this list.
