Hellmuth may have sensed the high temperature earlier this week from Phil Ivey, who said he’s aiming for 30 bracelets after taking down his eighth in a $3,000 HORSE event. Hellmuth retorted with a deep run in Event #41, sending off Cody Culp in 17th place. Hellmuth made flop top set, which held for the win.
Twitter was on fire last Wednesday with Hellmuth giving updates on his advancement during the second day of play in the Omaha High-Low Split event. Perhaps teasingly, he called his shot entering Wednesday’s action: “Ended Day One of Omaha 8/b with $31,600… another Day Two, but this feels different to me, maybe a cash, maybe a final table, maybe more…” Then, word of a Hellmuth prospecting in the top 100 spread like wildfire around the internet. Hellmuth’s final tweet came just before 3:00am PT on Thursday morning after play had ended for the day: “15 left in Omaha 8/b, and I am 4th in chips w $331,000, blinds will be 6k-12k the next day.”
