Phil Hellmuth eliminated in 2nd place for $1,063,034

Tags: 2011 wsop, brian rast, phil hellmuth, poker players championship.
Posted on 07 July 2011 by "T".

What a comeback by Brian Rast! He was down to about 2 million and almost out of the tournament a while ago. Now, about 10-15 minutes later, he's the champion and $1,720,328 richer! This was his second bracelet at the 2011 WSOP! Very impressive!

This is how the last 2 hands were played out.

Hand #216
Brian Rast had the button and raised to 240k. Phil Hellmuth called. The flop fell QSpade7Heart8Heart, and Hellmuth bet 300k. Rast called. The turn was the 4Club, Hellmuth checked, and Rast checked as well. The river was the 4Diamond and Hellmuth betted 300k. Rast folds, and Hellmuth won the pot.

Hand #217

Phil Hellmuth had the button and raised to 400k. Brian Rast called. The dealer lays out the flop JDiamond9Diamond10Spade on the table. Rast led for 500k, and Hellmuth moved all-in.

Rast stood up and said "I'm sorry Phil, I have the nuts. I call."

Rast KClubQClub
Hellmuth 8Diamond2Diamond

The turn was the 5Heart and changed nothing. The room fell silent and neither Hellmuth or Rast could look as the dealer was about to show the river card.

The 8Spade fell on the river and completed the board, and ended the tournament with Brian Rast as the winner.

Brian Rast's friends ran out onto the stage, jumping up and down celebrating the new champ. After a while, when things had calmed down, Rast and Hellmuth shook hands.

"If I were I'd tip that dealer a million," Hellmuth told Rast.

There was no doubt whatsoever that Phil Hellmuth was disappointed with his third runner-up finish at the 2011 WSOP. This was also the second heads-up match he lost with a huge lead. Let's hope that Hellmuth will take down the Main Event and get his 12th bracelet, he really deserves it!

"I'm sorry Phil, I have the nuts. I call."
Would love to see his face after seeing PHs cards.

"If I were I'd tip that dealer a million," Hellmuth told Rast." - I dont get that bit.
The very fact he is still going deep shows just how amazing of a player he is, not left to lady luck, GL in the main event phil. (i know he reads my posts).

Ouch....poor phil.. i actually feel a bit sorry for him. when is he going to ditch that monkey on his back?
 Jibberish07/07/2011 13:55:19 GMT
phil hellmuth is the most inspirational player to me, kinda reminds me of the older version of myself if i take poker seriously and really buckle down... might have to work on bankroll management first and somehow find a 4 leaf clover to even me out but then i should play fine Big Smile

What a turnover for Rast and Helmut. Phil must have become very sad after this final hand. Come on, lets look right at this: Helmut made something dangerous beting pre-flop with 8-2. It can be understood as a normal move in a heads-up, but he knew it could be his last hand. And after watching flop, he knew that was going to be his last hand and that he would be needing something else than what was at the table, which, unfortunately for him, it didn't showed up. Going all-in with 8-2 waiting a card is risky: Phil has got the proof of that!

Id like to know the effective stack sizes for the last two hands. Give us more of an opinion about his 8 deuce play Smile +1 fakiry
 Flippedchips07/07/2011 15:32:34 GMT
maybe a little loose raise with 82 suited but not that bad really and he has a flush draw and open ended str8 on the flop of course hes shipping the chips there its crazy not to just to many outs
 TheMachineQC07/07/2011 16:03:00 GMT
Yeah of course when you hit a flop like that you have to follow through Smile

Bad luck for PH but I'm sure he can win more bracelets if he runs good!
 shoveandtilt07/07/2011 16:17:20 GMT
Too many outs syndrome. Common. Blink
 SuperNoob07/07/2011 19:58:36 GMT
think hellmuth might have made another record for maximum number of second finishes in 1 wsop. well done to Rast for winning the big first prize and the bracelet
 LooseKiddie08/07/2011 07:20:56 GMT
Hands like that in heads up are played all the time, but still 82s is a little bit too loose imo. Most of the time in heads up no one will connect with the flop, so Phil could also easily bluff out Rast, but well... this time somone had nuts on the flop Tongue

I'd also like to know effective stacks because lately I wasn't tracking WSOP that much (mostly because FTP went down and I wasn't playing in fantasy WSOP any longer). But still, even if he was running very low on chips he shouldn't draw in heads up, because in most of the hands you don't have odds to draw in HU, even when you have 9 outs.

I'm really dorry that Phil Hellmuth didn't get this 12th bracelet actually, since already he has the many of them i think this bracelet that could be take only by a bracelet holder would have been nice Smile

Still, i think a 1 million dollar prize it's a pretty good consolation prize, but i'm sure as always he is more interested in prestige , not money Blink

It would be cool if the world series of poker oranizers would introduce more of this type of events in the ext year, i mean i really like the concept that only bracelet holders can register Smile
 tormulainen10/07/2011 14:05:00 GMT
poor phil. this is the third time in this years wsop that phil is the second, but this proves that he is one of the best live tournament players in the world. keep on going phil hellmuth. you are a legend and a hero.
 Flippedchips11/07/2011 08:24:47 GMT
its pretty standard call dont know what some of you going on about open ended str8 and flush draw
 vip7vip7vip11/07/2011 21:25:41 GMT
good for him reaching the final 2, anyway i can not say it is may favorite poker player Cool Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile
 dusicahetzel23/07/2011 22:50:32 GMT
Phil is one of the best poker player, but that doesnt mean that he must win all of time. Second place is great too Smile
 TUNGUSKANO02/08/2011 13:09:24 GMT
I agree. I call for every card for this prize.
I will never be sad in the end for a loss of this amount.
The odds is always strange is something the life show us great surprise.
