Welcome to the Phil Hellmuth Show

• Level 7: 150-300, 25 ante

Our first Phil Hellmuth appearance in the Pavilion followed the age old script poker fans have come to know and love.

After raising to 700 from UTG+1, the world's most accomplished championship bracelet collector watched as no less than four opponents came along, each eager to bring the bad beat pain down on the "Poker Brat."

Flop: {A-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

Hellmuth led out for 750 and shed three of the four stragglers, but an opponent called his bet from the button, bringing the {2-Spades} on the turn.

Despite the relatively innocuous card, Hellmuth immediately changed gears and checked to his opponent. This move elicited a bet of 1,700 from the button player, and Hellmuth was incredulous as he folded, flashing an Ace as he threw his cards away.

His opponent, perhaps sensing a once in a lifetime opportunity to needle Phil Hellmuth, offered to pay the living legend $500 cash if he could guess his hand. Hellmuth responded quickly by saying "Ten-Four suited," but his opponent slid his cards into the muck while shaking his head in the negative.
