Phil Hellmuth gets burned in a big hand against Alan Sass while we finally find a Girl on the Rail worth posting.
Unlike the fantastically-legged Girl on the Rail in the photo above, 11-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth isn’t looking so hot today in the $40k buy-in event. Hellmuth just donked off nearly $235k in one hand to Alan Sass, who is now stacked near the top of the field with 450k. Hellmuth is currently around the 30k range.
Doing well still are Antonio Esfandiari and Justin Bonomo along with new chipleader Lex ‘RaSZi’ Veldhuis (aka Evelyn Ng‘s boyfriend) with 530k. We see that Chris Moneymaker is high on the chip count too but we’re guessing he’s like some sort of “rabbit,” like they have in running races, going out ahead to set the pace for the real talent in the field, only to fall out of the race later on. Or maybe he’s just getting lucky. It’s happened before.
