One of the stars of the day was, once again, Phil Hellmuth Jr... but this time for any other reason than a solid peformance. Poker Brat had head elsewhere? One thing is certain, he seemed to have forgotten that he should return to the game today. History tells us that Mike Matusow had to send security in the House of Hellmuth Poker Brat realizes that he should come to his table. Time that Hellmuth return, his carpet had increased from 11,800 to only 7000. But true to himself, Phil Hellmuth has been to end the day at 64 900, allowing him to continue his adventure at the WSOP this year.

Unfortunately, the adventure of Jonathan Duhamel ended early yesterday, while he found himself all-in with A2 against the AK to his opponent. The champion of the world will therefore not managed to reach paid places this year.
