The 411 On The 41st (WSOP): Hellmuth Final Tables Before Jelinek Finishes The Job
June 25, 2021
Event #41 of the 2010 World Series of Poker, the $1,500 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split Eight-or-Better, wrapped up yesterday with an exciting final table featuring Phil Hellmuth aiming for a record twelfth WSOP bracelet and a top prize worth $245,871. 

Hellmuth once again proved his tournament skills by outlasting 840 players in Event #41, but unfortunately for him 847 had signed up to play, meaning this time Phil would have to settle for a seventh place cash worth $30,633, and leave this particular bracelet for some other well deserving player.

A little less than eight hours later, that player turned out to be England’s Steve Jelinek, after he defeated John Gottlieb in a heads-up battle, leaving Gottlieb the runner-up prize worth $151,884.

Other top players to cash in Event #41 included Chris “Jesus” Ferguson (75th- $2,847), Mike Matusow (49th- $4,448), Kevin MacPhee (32nd- $6,346), Tony Cousineau (14th- $11,731) and PokerRoad’s own Barry Greenstein, who finished agonizingly close to the final table in twelfth place overall ($14,544).

The final table finish positions for Event #41, the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low Split Eight-or-Better, were as follows:

1st.  Steve Jelinek- $245,871

2nd.  John Gottlieb- $151,884

3rd.  Anders Taylor- $97,913

4th.  Michael Chappus- $71,728
