BREAKING: Phil Hellmuth at 2022 WSOP $3,000 NLH Final Table, Chasing 17th Bracelet
Phil Hellmuth
Phil Hellmuth

Phil Hellmuth has set out to win 24 World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelets in his lifetime. On Saturday night, he has an opportunity to get one step closer to that lofty but realistic goal.

The "Poker Brat" is one of eight players remaining in Event #65: $3,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em at the time of publishing.

Hellmuth currently has 16 bracelets, a record by a wide margin. Johnny Chan, Doyle Brunson, and Phil Ivey are tied for second place with 10. Should he come out victorious on Saturday night, he'll make it difficult for anyone to catch up over the next decade, and possibly beyond.

The $3,000 NLH Freezeout attracted 1,359 entries and will play down to a winner tonight. That individual will not only take home a shiny gold bracelet, but also $598,173. For the Poker Hall of Famer, it would take him above the $28.5 million mark, according to Hendon Mob.

Bifarella Is Running Good

Samuel Bifarella

Samuel Bifarella confessed that a woman just gambled against him, and this explained why he had so much.

According to Bifarella, she opened to 7,500 and he three-bet to 16,500. Then she four-bet to 50,000 and he five-bet jammed for 125,000.

She finally made the call with    and the recent WSOP runner-up had   . The best hand held good to the river, and Bifarella has the biggest stack of his table.

Pair Good For Spragg

A player opened to 5,000 from the cutoff and received a single call from Benjamin Spragg out of the big blind.

Action checked through the     flop to the   turn where Spragg checked for a second time. His opponent fired off a bet of 7,500 and Spragg called.

Spragg checked for a third time after the   river with his opponent following suit. The popular twitch streamer turned over    for the flopped pair and the cutoff player, perhaps thinking he could have forced Spragg off of his hand with a more aggressive line, shook his head as he mucked his cards.

Tanita Calls His Shot

"I'm about to rip it all in from the button for a sick triple up," Tanita told PokerNews before a card had even been dealt. "Tell you what, if we play it at all, it's all going in, good or bad," he continued as cards began hitting the felt.

After a raise to 5,000 from late position, Tanita looked down at his cards. "Oh those are for sure going in" he said as he put his entire stack of chips into the pot, an even 50,000. Action folded back around to late position, where the player began to think it over.

"C'mon you're so due for a loss," Tanita told his opponent. After a minute or so, the opponent tossed in the call and the two were racing.

Robert Tanita:   

Tanita was in rough shape, but had some hope after the     board gave him a flush draw. The   turn was inconsequential, but the   on the river completed Tanita's flush, securing him the double up.

Marcus Wins Classic Race for Knockout

Daniel Marcus

Fresh off of his second final table of the series in Event #57: $600 Deep Stack No-Limit Hold'em, where he finished fifth for the biggest cash of his career at $78,793, Daniel Marcus is hungry for more.

After the cutoff raised to 4,000, Marcus reraised to 15,000 from the small blind. A four-bet shove for 41,000 came from early position, and after the cutoff got out of the way, Marcus made the call with his opponent covered.

Daniel Marcus:   

In the classic race, Marcus pulled ahead quickly on the     flop. The   turn and   river changed nothing, and Marcus' pair of aces were still best. He raked in the pot while his opponent was sent to the rail.

Kovalski Finds Rockets

Fabiano Kovalski

A player in late position opened to 4,000 and Fabiano Kovalski, who earlier today finished runner up in Event #67: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em for $363,116, called on the button.

The late position player continued for 4,000 on a flop of     and Kovalski made the call.

On the   turn the preflop raiser was in no mood to slow down and fired off another bet, this time sizing up to 7,000. Again, Kovalski called.

The late position player moved all in on the   river and Kovalski snap called and turned over    for the third nuts, good enough to take down the pot and keep his heater of a day going.

Leo Soma:   

Soma was ahead with the bigger queen, and the       runout paired both player's queens, and Soma took the pot with his better kicker, knocking out his opponent.

Peffly Gets Outdrawn

Picking up the action on the flop, Alex Peffly in the cutoff was involved in a hand with a player out of the big blind. With the board reading     and a decently large pot in the middle, the big blind player led out for 10,500. Peffly responded by raising to 26,500 and his opponent called.

Both players checked through the   turn to the   river where the big blind checked again. Peffly checked back and was shown    by his opponent.

"You thought you were good on the flop?" questioned Peffly as, with a look of disbelief, he tossed his hand into the muck.
