While on 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Tournament of Champions (TOC) breaks through 3 July, Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke are in a great acceleration to the high standing and bankiranju in this tournament. With 17 of the starting 27 players, Hellmuth and Duke are back to back in the middle of this group. With a chip gain of 44 100 Hellmuth at the eighth, and Duke just behind him, on the ninth, with 42,600.
If they maintain this position until the end of the tournament both bankirali at $ 25,000, though no doubt they want to appropriate the top prize of $ 500,000. Duke does not have success at this year's WSOP
as yet in any event not bankirala, so her victory in the TOC was a big jump since the 2009th on "Celebrity Apprentice" was the tournament runner-up. It also would encourage the view of the failures that lower because it is not so long ago won the National Heads-Up Poker Championship. Duke is one of the five automatically qualified for the TOC, which brought her victory in the Tournament of Champions in 2004. Just then outplayed Hellmuth in heads-up bankirala where all of the top prize of $ 2 million.
On the other hand, Hellmuth, who is most proud of is the holder of most WSOP bracelets in the history of poker, I would also like to win the TOC, even though technically it would not be recorded as his 12th bracelet won. Hellmuth is also disappointing poor at this year's WSOP, with only three cache - a total of $ 70,622. It has two top-15 placements including one final table, but considering that the all-time leader in the number of cache to the WSOP is still the weak result for him. It is your qualification to the Tournament of Champions won an online vote of fans. He was fourth in the number of votes among the 20 players who have thus qualified by winning a total of 12,673 votes. In front of him on the list were Phil Ivey (16,267), Daniel Negreanu (16,239) Doyle Brunson (13 796).
At the TOC and Antonio Esfandiari is currently in 16 th and Scotty Nguyen in fourth place. When the TOC continues to play the final table which will be played tomorrow, 4 July.
