Event 37: $2,500 Eight-Game Mix

The Phils Have Arrived


Limit 2-7 Triple Draw:

"Is this for real?" we heard Phil Hellmuth asked over at Table 360. The 12-time bracelet winner was a late entrant and had the honor of being seated next to Gavin Smith; however, Hellmuth's rhetorical question was in reference to his hand, which he raised from the button.

Smith folded from the small blind, and after the big did the same, Hellmuth revealed {9-}{7-}{5-}{4-}{3-}. "I guess that's how you get to the final table all the time," Smith said. "You and Ivey get dealt the nuts all the time. The only difference is his hands hold up."

Speaking of Ivey, he has also entered our tournament, doing a little double dipping while Event 35: $2,500 Mixed Hold'em, where he is sixth in chips out of 21, is on dinner break.
