Famed poker television producer Mori Eskandani, the man responsible for Poker PROductions (the company that films the WSOP), made his way into the Brasilia Room in search of Phil Hellmuth. When he located him over at Table 26, Hellmuth's face lit up.
"Golf money," Hellmuth exclaimed as Eskandani slapped a wad of cash in his hand. Eskandani just smiled and walked away. Hellmuth then turned to Matt Salsberg and Jonathan Duhamel, who were both seated at the other end of the table, and explained that he had been doing quite well in gold as of late.
"Somehow when I drive the ball it stays in place," Hellmuth laughed. "When that happens everyone is in trouble."
Hellmuth, who is just a few days removed from finishing runner-up in Event #7: $1,500 Seven-Card Razz, continued to chat it up while Duhamel and Salsberg just smiled and nodded.
