Hellmuth Finishes Off Selbst

Phil Hellmuth - One of The Chip Leaders!

Intrepid reporter "Happy_Freaked" brought you news of an important clash between Phil Hellmuth and Vanessa Selbst just a few short minutes ago (Hellmuth and Selbst Clash in Big One). Then this happened.

Selbst made a standard raise from early position and Hellmuth made the three-bet from the button. Action back on to Selbst and she four-bet to a clean 10,000, putting the pressure right back to Hellmuth.

"Alright, I guess I am all in," said Hellmuth.

Selbst looked far from happy, but eventually made the call.

Selbst{A-Clubs} {J-Hearts}

Board: {K-Hearts} {10-Hearts} {2-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {4-Spades}

Both players shook hands and a bitterly disappointed Selbst departed.

"I really respect her game (Selbst), but during the break I told myself that if I had the chance I would move all in with Jacks," Hellmuth said to his table mate.

Hellmuth is right up there with Casey Kastle at the top of the chip counts.
