Everyone has a weird hand that they love to play. Mine is pocket 8's. For some reason I will always play pocket 8's and it usually works out in my favor.

Or Phil Ivey regularly playing the Big Game at the Bellagio with $4,000/$8,000 blinds. Although he's the greatest cash game player ever so it's no big deal for him

I don't like Hellmuth. He's a very good player, but he's annoying.

Same with Mike "The Mouth", except Mike is kind of mediocre for a pro.

Hellmuth has a chance at his 12th bracelet today.

He's not in good position to get it though, he's last in chips at a 10 handed final table.

I also can't believe Chris Reslock beat Ivey heads up to win his bracelet.

I'm not taking anything away from Reslock because he's a regular on the WPT final tables but against Ivey?

Beth Shak is on a downward spiral. She went from 2nd in chips to 7th.

Phil is back in 8th place but added 84K to his stack.

Check out this hand...Crazy...

Quote:
Magic in the Room, Brett Richey Eliminated 8th ($42,227)
Wow. In a truly amazing poker moment, Brett Richey has been eliminated. Brett Richey raises to $80,000 and Beth Shak moves all in. Phil Hellmuth immediately moves all in, and in response Shak starts dancing. Hellmuth starts celebrating as well, and they give each other a high five. Then, unexpectedly Richey calls as well. Shack tables her hand first, AA and the crowd explodes. Richey then shows down KK and a sick groan mixed with cheers goes up. Then Hellmuth drops AA on the table, and rail erupts the loudest it has been at this years WSOP. The board comes 107384, Richey is sent home, and Hellmuth splits with Shak.
