Phil Hellmuth Eliminated in 2nd Place ($273,233)

[user139916] • Level 28: 100,000-200,000, 20,000 ante
Phil Hellmuth - 2nd place

After Eric Rodawig brought it in and Phil Hellmuth completed, Rodawig raised. Hellmuth got it in for 280,000 and Rodawig called.

Rodawig: {A-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}/{3-Clubs} - {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}/{K-Diamonds}
Hellmuth: {J-Clubs}{10-Clubs}/{9-Hearts} - {5-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{7-Spades}

Facing Rodawig's two pair, Hellmuth was left with only three outs to keep his hopes for a 12th WSOP bracelet alive. The {J-Hearts} wasn't it, ending Hellmuth's run in second place for the second time this WSOP.

Hellmuth was gracious in defeat, telling Rodawig, "You played well." He received consolation from friends Huck Seed and Jean-Robert Bellande as the crowd gave him a rousing ovation.
