Kirk Caldwell is the fourth Canadian to win a golden bracelet in this year’s WSOP, taking down Event #32 $1,500 NLHE. In Event #33 $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low Phil Hellmuth once again got close to his 12th bracelet but eventually lost to Eric Rodawig heads-up.
Dror Michaelo led the field of 35 players to enter Day 3 of the $1,500 NLHE event (WSOP #32) with 876,000 in chips. At Level 24 (4,000/12,000/24,000) the 9-handed final table was formed:

Level 25 (5,000/15,000/30,000) saw a quick decline in the number of finalists: Marc Mclaughlin, Martin Stevens and Kyle Cartwright went all-in preflop and Mclaughlin had the nuts, rivering a top pair of queens. Rodrigo Portaleoni was out in the next hand and Randy Haddox in the one after that. Following Michaelo, Gabriel Morin and, after an extended 3-handed play, Mclaughlin, Caldwell and Corbin White remained to play heads-up.

In the last hand of the short session, the players shoved preflop:

Caldwell: {#}8 {#}8
White: {#}A {#}Q

Board: {#}7 {#}9 {#}9 {#}J {#}8

Ali Eslami was eliminated first and followed by Joe Tehan, Mikhail Savinov and David Benyamine. At Level 25 (10,000/50,000/100,000) Hellmuth, Racener and Forrest got all in:

Forrest: ({#}8 {#}4 ) {#}6 {#}3 {#}Q {#}7 ({#}T )
Racener: ({#}A {#}4 ) {#}7 {#}Q {#}2 {#}K ({#}5 )

Hellmuth got the high pot and Racener won the low, Forrest finished in 4th place. With Racener out in 3rd, Rodawig and Hellmuth got to play heads-up; in the one hour long session Hellmuth could not take the lead and, eventually, shoved his last 280,000:

Rodawig: ({#}A {#}8 ) {#}3 {#}2 {#}2 {#}3 ({#}K )
Hellmuth: ({#}J {#}T ) {#}9 {#}5 {#}7 {#}4 ({#}J )

Hellmuth finished 2nd for the 2nd time in this year’s WSOP; his 12th bracelet is yet to be won. The 'Brat', however, handled his defeat unusually easily and congratulated Rodawig for his first WSOP title ever. The results are as follows:
