Phil Ivey and Phil Hellmuth simultaneously heads-up for bracelets. A long-awaited buzz taking over the Rio as big rails gathered and scrambled to see the action.

Hellmuth finally closing in an event to win his record 12th bracelet. Ivey falling short against the unorthodox play of Andy Frankenberger, who won his second bracelet in two years.

As you might expect the Twitter world has since blown up with kudos and vitriol streaming in on all sides - and no shortage of hate directed at Frankenberger. Who, we should mention, is also now the runaway leader in the WSOP Player of the Year race.
