• Level 25: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

Phil Hellmuth opened the button and James Worth called from the big blind.

The flop was a draw-heavy {q-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}. Worth checked and Hellmuth continued for 14,000, which Worth called.

The {9-Diamonds} turn and {5-Clubs} river both went check-check and Worth's {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs} was good to take the chips.

The last four pots have all gone to Phil Hellmuth and only one of those reached a showdown.

It began with a limp in the small blind from Hellmuth and a check from Alexander Lakhov in the big.

The flop fell {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Hellmuth bet 7,000 and Lakhov called. Then the {q-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} turn and river both went check-check.

"Small pair" announced Hellmuth as he turned over {6-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}. It was good enough.
