Phil Hellmuth has arrived and sits in the seat once occupied by the eliminated Vanessa Selbst. We arrived at the table in time to find Hellmuth engaged in an Omaha 8 hand with John Hennigan to his direct left.
In the hand, the board read and Hellmuth checked. Hennigan led out with a bet and the "PokerBrat" called. The paired the board on the river and Hellmuth checked once more. Hennigan rapped the table back.
"King-queen," said Hellmuth.
It was no good, however, as Hennigan showed for a winning two pair of kings and nines. Hennigan took down the pot and Hellmuth took a small hit to his stack to start his tournament.
