Joseph Cheong opened for 65,000 under the gun and received a call from Phil Hellmuth on the button. Stephane Girault then moved all in from the small blind for 300,000 more, Cheong folded, and Hellmuth made the call.

Girault: {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}
Hellmuth: {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}

"I've got a good feeling about this one," Hellmuth said. It looked like he may have spoke to soon as the {7-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop delivered an ace and gave Girault the lead. With that said, the {6-Spades} turn sent a wave of, "Ahhhh's," through the room as it gave Hellmuth an open-ended straight draw and ten outs.

Wouldn't you know it, the {4-Diamonds} river was one of them as Hellmuth straightened out Girault and sent him home in seventh place for €108,864.
