Down To 9 In The WSOP One Drop

Heading into the final table of the $111k buy-in WSOP One Drop High Roller, Elky Grospellier leads in chips with Doug Polk, Andrew Robl, Martin Jacobson, Haralabos Voulgaris, Michael Kamran, Chris Moore, Dario Sammartino and Rainer Kempe rounding out a star-studded final nine.

The One Drop also saw yet another blow-up from Phil Hellmuth, after Elky owned his soul in an epic bluff to get Hellmuth to fold trip queens.  He was also bluffed off pocket tens in another huge spot and ended up bubbling the final table.  Perhaps trying to set a world record for ‘most delusional narcissist’, Hellmuth actually bragged on Twitter about inducing bluffs that he failed to call down, using the hashtag ‘inducingBluffsMasterPH’:

This comes on the heels of Hellmuth’s early exit from the Aria Super High Roller Bowl, when lost most of his chips by running top set into Justin Bonomo’s flopped straight and verbally lashed out at Bonomo.
