Daniel Negreanu recently made a statement that PEMM wasn't
going to help Phil Hellmuth play better but instead, Phil

whether it was PEMM, LTPB, or Diet Pepsi, Phil has made the
final table of the Bay 101 Shooting Stars WPT Event. Â 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.
