There are now 77 remaining players of 420 in the WSOP Europe Main Event.

Eventually he was eliminated in in Level 11 where he joined Vanessa Rousso, Joe Hachem, Phil Ivey, Antonio Esfandiari and many other big names on the rail.

On Thursday, a total of 52 players returned to play Day 2 of Event #5: Mixed Max (No-Limit Hold'em). Jennifer Tilly had the lead when the day started and Faraz Jaka was the closest opponent.

After several hours of 6-handed action, just as planned, the second day of the tournament ended when 16 players had chips left, and both Jaka (3rd place with 258,100) and Tilly (9th place with 163,300) were among the survivors. Other notables to make it through the day were, for example, Phil Hellmuth, Marvin Rettenmaier, Bertrand Grospellier and Jason Mercier.

Just a few hours after Matthew Salsberg, producer of the popular TV series Weeds, took down the WPT Grand Prix de Paris, the main event at WPT Malta kicked off at Portomaso Casino in St.Julians. Day 1a only attacked a field of 64 players willing to pay the €3,300 buy-in. The reason for this might be because of several expensive WCOOP on PokerStrars and/or that WPT Grand Prix de Paris was to close.

In an interview that was published 22/5, 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth said that there is a big chance that he will play the $1,000,000 buy-in event Big One for One Drop at this summer's WSOP because he has found stakers to pay a large chunk of the massive buy-in.

Phil Hellmuth: I haven't even tried to raise money for the "Big One" yet. Then I talked to just one guy and I got a text from him: "I am thinking about buying a piece of you for the Big One. I put up $250,000." I just wrote back: "Thank you!"

Posted on Thursday, April 12, 2012 by "T".

In a recent interview with QuadJack's Poker Radio, Phil Hellmuth, 11-time WSOP Bracelet winner, talked about the drug addiction many famous poker players have/have had.

"There's a drug, I don't know the name of it, but it's something like speed. I'm talking about a really heavy drug. Many poker players have taken this drug in the past 10 years. Almost all players who took this drug has won 1 or 2 million dollars over a 6-8 month period. But then the effect of the drug stopped working, which left many of them with a drug addiction. I smoked weed about 25 years ago or something like that. But I'm not a person who's into drugs at all."
