Phil Hellmuth raised from the hijack and Shaun Deeb defended the big blind.

On the {J-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{2-Hearts} flop, Deeb checked, Hellmuth bet, Deeb raised and Hellmuth went into the tank.

As Hellmuth was thinking, Ben Yu from the table over was reading the hand that set Hellmuth off out loud as the remaining players and rail laughed.

Hellmuth eventually raised all in and Deeb called the 5,000 more.

Hellmuth: {A-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Deeb: {6-Spades}{6-Clubs}

Deeb was ahead with his pair of sixes and Hellmuth would need to improve to stay alive.

The {4-Diamonds} on the turn was of no help to Hellmuth nor was the {9-Diamonds} on the river and he was eliminated.

Deeb went over to Hellmuth and wished him a good game and Hellmuth exited the tournament area quietly.
