Would be fantastic to see Hellmuth take this down. Alot of people have been saying he's finished and no longer one of the big names in the game, and now look, he's fighting with Ben Lamb for player of the year and come runner up in 2 events, neither of which are his natural game..

Love him or hate him, he's still the most succesful player of all time and far from finished...

11 players left. They want to play another level and try to go down to eight players. Either today or tomorrow will be a verrry long day at the tables.

Final table, with Hellmuth and Lamb both still in with a shout, though Lamb is now shorter of the stacks with only 930k left in.

Special mention has to go to George Lind who about 2 hours ago was down to 17k and absolutely crippled. He couldn't even complete the betting.

He managed a triple up to give him 68k and now he's on 1.5 million after a series of amazing suckouts and unreal hands. If he wins this, it will surpass Joe Cadas amaazing comeback in the 2009 WSOP main event.

Done for today. Nine players left, with Minh Ly as chip leader. More than double the stack of the guy at second place. Hellmuth still with a good chance.

Great names in this almost final phase event. Lets see if Helmut will be able to take the lead, or if Brian Rast will make all the way till the end.

with levels as slow as this, theres a lot of poker still to be played and anything can happen when such big players are on the final table. hope they finish the tournament tomorrow.

I would really like to see Phil Hellmuth winning this wsop bracelet considering the fact that he has the most wsop bracelets in his collection, so it would be nice to have this one too considering wgat was the requirments to join this event, to be a wsop event winner Smile

Many judge him for his attitude at the poker table, and i think they are right to do it but you never must think that he is not a talented poker player, he is, but he is a tournament player, every timehe plays a cash session he busts pretty quick Big Smile

So it's great if he can stick to these tournament and winning more world series of poker bracelets Blink Smile

George Lind is unreal. Last night he was down to 17k and absolutely crippled. He's now in 3rd place on 2.8 million and looking a very very good bet.

If he wins this it would be a comeback of such huge proportions I don't think you'll ever see one like it again...

Utterly amazing

Hellmuth now Chipleader....


Down to the final 5 and Hellmuth pulling away a bit..

He's looking good for that 12th bracelet

Down to three players now. Rast and Hellmuth with 80+ BB, Minh Ly in trouble with a bit over 20 BB at the moment.

Ly out in 3rd. Now heads up between Hellmuth and Brian Rast. Slight chip lead for Hellmuth, but both players are deep enough to play some poker.

Brian Rast took it down. Hellmuth did build up a huge chip lead, but all went downhill from there and it was over in a few hands.
