      The Poker Player’s Championship: 3 players left – Hellmuth in 2nd place!

      The Event #55: The Poker Player’s Championship final table is running at the moment. There are 3 players left: 11-time WSOP gold bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, 2011 WSOP bracelet winner Brian Rast, and Minh Ly. Brian Rast is in the lead with 9,5 million chips, Phil Hellmuth is in second place with 6,8 million, and Minh Ly has about 2,8 million.

      Ladies and gentlemen, it’s getting extremely exciting! All players are guaranteed at least $665,763 each. The winner will get $1,720,328 and the coveted gold bracelet, and the runner-up will get $1,063,034. Personally,

      I hope that Phil Hellmuth will win his 12th bracelet and take home the biggest cash in his career.

      We will return with an update as soon as a winner has been crowned! Stay tuned!

      Phil Hellmuth had the button, and raised to 400,000. Brian Rast called, and the dealer fanned jd9d10s . Rast led for 500,000, and Hellmuth moved all in.
      Rast stood up. “I’m sorry Phil, I have the nuts. I call.”
      Rast: kcqc
      Hellmuth: 8d2d
      “One more fade!” Rast’s rail chanted. “One more fade!”
      The turn was red 5h, but the changed nothing. Hellmuth couldn’t look, Rast had his head in his hands, and the room fell silent.
      The 8s completed the board, and ended the tournament.
      Rast’s friends jumped over the wall and onto the stage, jumping up and down in celebration. After things calmed down, Rast and Hellmuth shook hands.
      “If I were you, I’d tip that dealer a million,” Hellmuth told Rast.

      Hellmuth will have to settle with a third runner-up finish at the 2011 World Series of Poker, and of course his $1,063,034 in prize money.
