Paul Lee major chip leader at WPT Championship
The final table of the World Poker Tour (WPT) Championship has been set. Paul Lee has extended his lead and now sits with $11.8 million in his stack, ahead of second-placed Carlos Mortensen who has $6.5 million.
Hellmuth sat with pocket jacks and moved all-in when the flop showed 8c-6s-2h, but got an immediate call from Thomas Wahlroos who showed pocket aces. No help came for Hellmuth on the turn or river.
According to PokerListings.com reporter Owen Laukkanen, who was located at the table, the "Poker Brat" left the Fontana Room with a "characteristic rant", before finally admitting:
"Well, you had the best hand on that one, son."
Other big names to get knocked out on the penultimate day of the tournament included 2006 WSOP Main Event runner-up Paul Wasicka, double WSOP bracelet winner Scott Fischman and former WPT and EPT winner Roland De Wolfe.
