Hellmuth Gets Shown a Bluff

Calum_Grant • Level 33: 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante

David Jackson opened to 1,400,000 from the small blind and was called by Phil Hellmuth from the big blind.

The {10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{7-Diamonds} flop was checked through to the {9-Clubs} turn. Jackson bet 1,000,000 and then Hellmuth instantly made it 2,000,000. Jackson then jammed and Hellmuth quickly gave it up while showing his {q-Hearts}{10-Hearts}.

Jackson responded by showing him his {q-Spades}{j-Hearts} and Hellmuth was not happy about it.

Jeffrey Lo raised to 800,000 from the button before Timothy Sullivan stuck his last 2,600,000 in the middle from the small blind. David Jackson got out of the way while Lo snap-called.

Timothy Sullivan: {a-Hearts}{3-Hearts}
Jeffrey Lo: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

The {6-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{10-Spades} flop gave Lo a pair of tens and left Sullivan looking to go runner-runner. The turn came the {4-Diamonds} and Sullivan was already drawing dead as the {a-Diamonds} fell on the river.

Saliba Gets a Double Up

Calum_Grant • Level 33: 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante

Justin Saliba raised to 2,100,000 from the button. Timothy Sullivan moved all in from the big blind and Saliba called with his 550,000 left behind.

Justin Saliba: {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Timothy Sullivan: {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}

Sullivan paired up but Saliba also had outs to the straight or the flush after the {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} flop hit the table. The {10-Spades} turn gave Saliba a straight and he then improved to a flush on the {j-Diamonds} river.

Sullivan Doubles Up

dsalituro • Level 33: 200,000-400,000, 400,000 ante

Timothy Sullivan shoved for his last 1,925,000 from under the gun. Justin Saliba then re-shoved for 3,500,000 in the small blind as Jeffrey Lo asked for a count before eventually folding.

Timothy Sullivan: {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Justin Saliba: {k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

The board ran out {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{8-Clubs}{a-Clubs} as Sullivan made two pair, aces and fives, on the river to double up and leave Saliba on a short stack.

David Jackson opened to 600,000 from under the gun before Renan Bruschi made it 1,050,000 from middle position. Jackson jammed as the big stack and was snap-called.

Renan Bruschi: {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}
David Jackson: {k-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Bruschi was on the right side of it until the {k-Hearts}{j-Spades}{8-Hearts} flop gave Jackson a set of kings. The {7-Diamonds} turn was a brick and the {3-Hearts} river confirmed Bruschi's elimination.

The five remaining players have now moved on to the feature table inside Bally's Event Center.

2022 WSOP Featured Females: Meet Wendeen Eolis, 1st Woman to Ever Cash Main Event

Wendeen Eolis

In the mid 1980’s, women were considered no factor in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event, and other than the famous rounder and professional gambler Thomas “Amarillo Slim” Preston, poker players rarely made headlines in the mainstream press. That all changed when Wendeen Eolis became the first woman to cash at poker’s “Big Dance.”

In the 1986 WSOP Main Event, Eolis battled some of the best players in the world, including Amarillo Slim, in a field of 141 runners. She was on her way to a 25th-place finish for a $10,000, return on her buy-in, and permanent bragging rights as the first woman in history to cash in the WSOP Main Event.

Eolis attributes her 1986 WSOP performance to a year of poker tutoring from one of the best, a “relatively” conservative game plan, and cooperative cards. She told PokerNews, “Even today, women can win more by bluffing less than men.”

Hellmuth Sends Bruschi Into the Tank

dsalituro • Level 32: 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante

In a limped pot, Renan Bruschi and Phil Hellmuth saw a flop of {7-Spades}{9-Spades}{k-Diamonds}. Bruschi bet 300,000 and Hellmuth raised to 700,000.

Bruschi called and they both checked down the {j-Diamonds} on the turn. The river came the {10-Clubs} and Bruschi checked again.

Hellmuth this time put out 1,400,000 as Bruschi went deep into the tank, taking off his sunglasses and talking to Hellmuth in an attempt to extract any information. Hellmuth sat motionless, his hands clasped over his mouth, while he looked straight ahead.

"Okay, show the bluff," Bruschi said after several minutes, sliding his cards back to the dealer. Hellmuth didn't show as he collected the pot.
