"How much you got Mikey?" asked Phil Hellmuth to Mike Matusow.

"I got 22, you?" responded Matusow.

"Well I should have 19, but I got three," returned Hellmuth.

"I should have three, but Richie Sklar gave me a sandwich on break with powers and now I have 22!" concluded Matusow.

The players are now heading on a 15-minute break.

This will be the final break before registration closes for the tournament.

Hellmuth Busts Kostritsyn

[user80015] • Level 6: 300-600, 75 ante

Phil Hellmuth completed and was called before Alexander Kostritsyn raised. Hellmuth re-raised and Kostritsyn capped it at 1,200 with both players calling. Fourth street saw action checked around before action was capped on fifth with Kostritsyn finding himself all in for 2,825. On sixth the unknown opponent would find himself all in for his last 625.

Hellmuth: {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} / {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}{9-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Kostritsyn: {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} / {7-Clubs}{K-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{9-Spades}
Opponent: {7-Hearts}{4-Clubs} / {3-Hearts}{J-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}

With Hellmuth leading with his pair of queens but every player having multiple outs in different ways, Kostritsyn flipped over his {5-Diamonds} first to make two pair and take the lead.

Hellmuth then found the {Q-Clubs} to take the lead back - and simultaneously eliminate Kostritsyn - while the unknown player found the {5-Hearts} to keep him alive in the tournament.

Martin Felts One

[user80015] • Level 6: 300-600, 75 ante

Catching the action on sixth street, Jesse Martin bet into a side pot as Jonathan Duhamel called while an unknown player was all in. Martin bet seventh and Duhamel called.

Martin: {X-}{X-} / {7-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{5-Spades} / {X-}
Duhamel: {X-}{X-} / {3-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} / {X-}
Opponent: {X-}{X-} / {8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{6-Spades}{8-Hearts} / {X-}

Martin tabled his {J-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Spades} for a straight and a eight-seven low as Duhamel mucked and the all-in player announced he had an {8-} but failed to improve.
