Phil Hellmuth Eliminated by Chad Batista
Level 14: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante
A player raises preflop to 6,000, Chad Batista reraises to 22,000, and Phil Hellmuth moves all in for 42,000. The initial raiser folds, and Batista calls with A10. Hellmuth shows 1010, and he's a favorite to double up.
The board comes J55A8, and Batista pairs his ace on the turn to win the pot and eliminate Phil Hellmuth from the tournament.
Chad Batista - 356,000
Phil Hellmuth - Eliminated
Hellmuth gave a brief interview to the WPT cameras after busting, and he said he had two big hands today, and lost both on bad beats. Earlier today, a player moved all in with king-queen, and Hellmuth called with pocket queens -- but a king hit the board. Hellmuth said he treaded water for another three hours or so before losing this hand against Batista.
