Hands #1-5: Players Not Afraid to Mix It Up

Chad_Holloway • Nivo 16: 1,500-3,000, 500 ante

Hand #1: Steven Zhou raised to 10,000 from the button and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #2: Phil Hellmuth raised to 8,000 on the button, Alexander Antonios called from the small blind, and Michael Tran came along from the big to make it three-way action to the {q-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{5-Clubs} flop. Two checks saw Hellmuth continue for 20,000, only Antonios called, and then both players checked the {2-Hearts} turn. When the {A-Diamonds} completed the board on the river, Antonius led out for 38,500 and Hellmuth folded.

Hand #3: Bruno Politano opened for 8,000 under the gun and Yu Kurita defended her big blind. Kurita then check-called a bet of 12,500 on the {2-Spades}{5-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop before both players checked the {Q-Clubs} turn. When the {J-Clubs} completed the board on the river, Kurita checked and then snap-folded when Politano moved all in.

Hand #4: Antonios raised to 6,500 from the cutoff and won the pot.

Hand #5: Antonios raised to 6,000 from the hijack and Politano called from the small blind. Both players checked the {10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} flop, and then Antonios called a bet of 11,500 on the {J-Spades} turn. Politano then check-folded to a bet of 19,000 on the {5-Clubs} river.

Will Phil Hellmuth Capture His Record 14th Bracelet Today?

Yesterday, Phil Hellmuth, the World Series of Poker's most decorated player, notched his 108th WSOP cash and 51st WSOP final table here in the WSOP APAC Event #7 AU$2,200 Six-Max No-Limit Hold'em. Now, the 1989 WSOP Main Event champ has a chance as his record 14th gold bracelet and looks to become just the third player to win gold bracelets in the US, Europe, and Australia, the others being Daniel Negreanu and Jeff Lisandro.

Thanks to busting out Kris Nestorovic in seventh place, Hellmuth will take 266,500 in chips into Day 3. While that's technically fifth on the leader board out of the final six players, the top five stacks are separated by less than 50,000 in chips, as the top stack has 315,000.

Steven Zhou will begin the day as chip leader, but Alexander Antonios (278,000), Michael Tran (274,000), and Yu Kurita (269,500) sit between him and Hellmuth. Kurita has become the first female player to reach a WSOP Asia-Pacific final table, and she's got just as good a chance as any to grab the gold.

Rounding out the final table with 65,000 in chips is none other 2014 WSOP November Niner Bruno Politano. The Brazilian, who is the only November Niner to make the trip to the land down under, is the short stack, and that's somewhat fitting as he will also be the short stack when the WSOP Main Event reconvenes in November. Obviously he's proving it was no fluke when he made the November Nine.

Can Politano make a comeback and walk away with the bracelet? Will Hellmuth be able to make poker history or will someone else emerge as the last man — or woman — standing? Today all questions will be answered. One thing is for sure, Hellmuth is feeling good. After play completed last night, he spoke with PokerNews Senior Editor Chad Holloway about making the final table and his quest for number 14:

The third and final day will begin at 12:10 p.m. local time, which is a little over an hour from now. Be sure to stay tuned as PokerNews will bring you hand-for-hand coverage of Hellmuth's quest for his fourteenth bracelet.
