Phil Hellmuth missed his 17th bracelet
Phil Hellmuth was one step away from another victory at WSOP. His triumph could take place in WSOP Event #36 with $10 000 buy-in. The Dealer's Choice tournament collected 93 entries, which formed a prize pool of $867 000.
Diler's Choice is a tournament format in which poker players choose a game in turns during each hand. When participating in such a game, you need to be ready for any poker discipline.
The famous poker legends played at the final table. It is worth noting Daniel Negreanu, who finished ninth and earned a modest prize of $25 000, instead of the coveted bracelet.
Adam Friedman became the last participant who tried to stop Hellmuth from winning WSOP bracelet, and he did it. Adam defended his trophy and became the champion. Heads-up battle was very tight, as none of the poker players wanted to concede.
At some point, Adam managed to get ahead and achieved the victory. So, we are waiting for the comments from eloquent Phil on his Twitter page. Perhaps a “white magician” will be able to win another WSOP bracelet.
