Sergii Baranov limped from the button and Phil Hellmuth simply said, "Three hundred more."

"All in," Baranov said.

"Call," Hellmuth snapped. "I'm going to win this right here."

Hellmuth: {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Baranov: {A-Spades}{4-Clubs}

Hellmuth had the dominant hand, but he couldn't bear to watch. Instead, he turned to his supporters on the rail with his back turned to the table. The flop fell {J-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}, and still Hellmuth did not look. The {A-Diamonds} turn paired both and gave Baranov some chop hopes, but it was not meant to be as the {3-Clubs} appeared on the river. With that, Baranov finished as runner-up to the all-time bracelet winner, who extended his lead to 13 bracelet in one of the world's most prestigious tournaments.

"It's the best tournament I've ever played in my entire life," Hellmuth said to his friends after the hand.
