Daniel Negreanu recently made a statement that PEMM wasn't going to help Phil Hellmuth play better but instead, Phil needed to employ LTPB or "Learn to Play Better. "  Well, whether it was PEMM, LTPB, or Diet Pepsi, Phil has made the final table of the Bay 101 Shooting Stars WPT Event.   He spent a good part of Thursday as the chip leader and will enter the final table 2nd in chips behind Andy Seth. Seat 1 - Hassan Habib - 455,000 Seat 2 - Phil Hellmuth - 1,433,000 Seat 3 - Andy Seth - 2,164,000 Seat 4 - Matt Keikoan - 371,000 Seat 5 - McLean Karr - 111,200 Seat 6 - Daniel O'Brien, 1,129,000 Personally, I am rooting for Phil.
