David Mandt Busted By Tommy Helms

$1,650 No Limit Hold’em WPT Championship

Level 15:  Blinds 1,500/3,000/500 ante

David Mandt got all-in holding pocket Tens and ran into Tommy Helms’ pocket Jacks.  The Jacks held up and David was busted.

Tommy is from Glendale, AZ, and is in town for a conference for his dealership.  He arrived early and decided to play some poker.  He’s supposed to play in a pro-am golf tournament tomorrow and because he made it to Day 2 of this event, he’s missing the practice round today.

On a flop of Qd7h2s Adamastor Santos (button) was all-in for 39,300.  After giving it some thought, Marc Lowe (bb) called.  Santos showed QsTh for top pair.  Marc’s 9s9c was way behind.

The last two fell 7s2s and Santos doubled up.  Marc dropped to about 127k.

35 players remain.  Average stack is 149k.
