A couple of days ago we got really excited about a WPT final table. Something we thought might never happen again after being forced to sit through this year's LAPC finale.
The reason was Phil Hellmuth. He made the final six of Bay 101 and, as you've probably heard, had a bit of a breakdown when he took a bad beat and busted in sixth.
We had only heard accounts of the scene, and seen a few pics, but today we've dug up video evidence.
Some sneaky fan recorded this on his mobile device so it's not exactly HD, but it does get the point across.
Hellmuth gets it in with queens against an ace and gets rivered. He stands up, shakes hands and then gets down on his hands and knees in the corner for five minutes.
In the past Hellmuth's antics have been unsportsmanlike, obnoxious and just plain rude but never before has he got down on his hands and knees and wept. This final table is a great accomplishment and the fact he went out to a bad beat shouldn't ruin that for him.
Don't be sad. Be glad!
