Vanessa Selbst just got moved to the direct left of Phil Hellmuth and we saw an interesting hand right off the bat. Hellmuth raised to 5,500 from the hi-jack and Selbst called from the cut-off. The flop came down and both players checked.
The turn was the and Hellmuth bet 13,000. Selbst decided to raise to 28,000 and Hellmuth called immediately. The river was the and Hellmuth checked. Selbst bet 24,500 and Hellmuth showed a little of that good old style we are used to seeing from the 11-time WSOP bracelet winner. After a while he calmed down and folded his cards giving Selbst the pot.
Alan Sass is also at this table and he is currently in second place with 362,400 chips.
