Phil Hellmuth has been eliminated and will not be adding a WPT title to his 12-WSOP bracelets after being eliminated at the hands of Bastien Lebel.

Lebel opened to 4,000 in early position, Hellmuth initially called in mid-position before Zeljko Krizan moved his short stack across the line on the button. Lebel then moved all-in prompting Hellmuth to straighten up out of his chair. The bet was just over 100,000 and was slightly more than Hellmuth had in front of him. Eventually, Hellmuth decided to call

Lebel: {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}
Hellmuth: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Krizan: {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

The first three cards out of the deck are {9-Clubs}{6-Spades}{3-Diamonds} and they are soon followed by the {9-Diamonds}.

"It doesn't look like it is going to come," says Hellmuth.

The river is the {Q-Clubs} and Hellmuth is visibly upset.

"This kid slides it all-in with just a pair of sevens, how sick? I trapped the kid as well," says Hellmuth.

"Two sevens? What are you playing at?" Says Tony G

"He plays every hand. He doesn't know what he is doing, Tony," says Hellmuth.
