Event #32: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Halfon Busts Hellmuth

• Level 10: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante
Phil Hellmuth

Albert Halfon has busted one of the great bracelet-hunters (and catchers) of all time - Phil Hellmuth. A late registrant, Hellmuth will not be winning his 16th bracelet in the Seniors 2019.

Down to 20,000 or so, Hellmuth's last hand was a three-way pot. An early position player limped for 1,200, Hellmuth made it 6,000 to go and was called by the limper and button Halfon.

Flop: {3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}. Check to Hellmuth who moved all in. Halfon called, and the third player folded.

Halfon: {6-Spades}{7-Spades} for top pair.
Hellmuth: {k-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, an overcard, flush draw and straightening potential.

Nothing came to improve Hellmuth's hand on the {9-Spades}{2-Clubs} turn and river and he was up and off in moments.
