Phil Hellmuth - 12th Place

From under the gun, the short-stacked Phil Hellmuth raised to 7,000. He had 8,000 behind, and action folded around the table to his nemesis of the day, Roman Romanovskyi. Romanovskyi reraised to 14,000 after asking Hellmuth how much he had behind. Hellmuth moved his chips all in and said, "You've probably got the best hand this time." Romanovskyi called.

Hellmuth showed the {K-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and was behind the {A-Spades}{5-Spades} for Romanovskyi. The good thing was, his cards were plenty live.

The board ran out {J-Clubs}{8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{2-Spades}, and Hellmuth couldn't find what he needed. He was eliminated in 12th place, earning €5,428.

"I play like a 12-time world champ and I'm out," were the parting words of Hellmuth as he exited the tournament.
