PCA 2013: Henrik Eide beats Hellmuth, Jelassi, Chen and Failla to title and $122,220
Henrik Eide topped an all-star final table in the $5,300 PLO at the PCA. The Swede beat the likes of EPT Prague champ Ramzi Jelassi, 11 WSOP bracelet holder Phil Hellmuth, PCA bounty champ Andrew Chen and Will Failla to the trophy and a six-figure score.
Hellmuth, who finished fourth for $33,180, last night sent this tweet explaining where it all went wrong for the poker brat:
"On bubble I limped Qd-Qs-10d-9h, 6 to flop Qh-8s-5d. I bet pot 18k, 1 call. Turn 4s, I ck, he bet pot 54k, I fold w 84k. Terrible fold!
AND he showed bluff, he had straight and flush draws (13 outs). Maybe he hits and I bubble for no cash, but maybe I have chip lead & win!"
Hellmuth's fold of top set - with the back-up of a gutshot to the nut straight - was a tight one but, as mentioned he still made the money.
