Event #45: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Hellmuth Ships it on a Draw....and Misses

OHairDJ • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

In what would be Phil Hellmuth's last hand, Hellmuth limped from early position and Jonathan Driscoll checked his option from the big.

The flop came {Q-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Hellmuth checked. Driscoll led out for 10,000 and Hellmuth raised to 20,000. Driscoll promptly re-raised to 30,000 and Hellmuth decided to ship his entire stack in. Driscoll called.

Hellmuth: {K-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Driscoll: {A-Clubs}{10-Spades}

The {A-Spades} turn and {Q-Spades} river bricked for Hellmuth and he immediately shot up out of his seat and exited the Amazon Room, leaving his stuff behind.

Hellmuth eventually came back to shake Driscoll's hand. However, during the handshake, Hellmuth couldn't resist the urge to berate Driscoll's play. Driscoll replied by asking Hellmuth why he would come back just to berate him.

"It's not you, I'm just steaming right now. I just played perfect for two straight days and lost it all..."

Hellmuth eventually composed himself and left. Driscoll is up to 640,000.
